Second Life in the 'Fast' Lane

I know that some of you have upgraded your computers so that your experiences in virtual worlds are enhanced.  (I know that was my ‘excuse’ when I decided to upgrade my laptop.)  I ‘needed’ more RAM, I ‘needed’ a better graphics card, I ‘needed’ those bells and whistles — well, maybe not the bells and whistles, but I figured if I was going for it, I was going for the whole kit and kaboodle.

I own a netbook (which I absolutely LOVE) and have been reluctant to install the Second Life client on it.  I don’t know about you, but not only when I want something do I want it now, but I don’t want to wait for it.  And let’s face it, netbooks aren’t known for their speed ‘under the hood’ or their stunning graphics capability.

And then in Twitter today, @kanor74 retweeted a post about ’9 Ways to Make Second Life Run Faster on Your Low Performance Computer’.  Check it out for yourself and decide if you can make your desktop, laptop, netbook, and who knows, but maybe even a future Google Android run your Second Life faster.

    Hi… thanks for the shout out. I came across the article when it was posted on the Virtual World for Educators Wave that I joined. See….Waves are good for something! I should give the credit to the person who posted it on the Wave….James O’Reilly.
