I’ve Joined the World of Second Life
Filed under: Computers & Internet

I finally decided to try out Second Life, the online virtual world.  So far it’s a bit slow going.  The rendering is a bit slow (on a 1.8 GHz PC with 1 GB RAM and an ATi Radeon 9600 video card w/32 MB video RAM) and it just crashed on me.  But still, it is kind of cool.

I’ve begun exploring just a little so far.  There are online mentors also, so I asked a what might be fun to do and they recommended a haunted house (since Halloween is almost here).  That was funky.  There seems to be so much to do it’s hard to know where to begin.

I don’t plan on paying a monthly fee for an advanced membership, though it would be fun to buy property and build a house.  I don’t expect this will become an obsession or anything, but it looks like a fun escape for now and then.

It would be kinda cool to meet up with friends in the Second Life world, so it you are interested, sign up for a free account.  My Second Life name is Relwyn Eliot, so look for me on the inside  ;-)
