I created this web service because I did not like relying on an external (non-Linden Lab) source for name-to-key translations. Unlike other services that use (semi-)automatic in-world data collection techniques, my service goes 'right to the source' and queries the Linden Lab data services. I've found that other external sources sometimes miss low-activity residents altogether. The chances of that happening with the Linden Lab data services is nil.

If you'd like to use this API, please contact Nava Muni for host information.

You can specify any number of names; separate each by a comma.

    FIRST and LAST are returned in the correct (that is, user-created) case.
