Instead of buying an obsolete card for an obsolete PC, I know, better to buy a new computer (as always just a stupid question of money). But not a basic computer with the minimum requirements, a true (expensive) computer for the SL of 2012. I'd like to know, at least once, how it looks like. With a modern viewer (SL3 or Firestorm). An maybe I'd watch my own characters with a new eye.
It seems the most important word in SL viewers is "mesh" (at least for characters). I don't try to understand this magic word. A word for experts, not a word for fun. As always I'm lazy. In SL like in RL, I'm very selective, I only learn words that can bring me fun. Yes I'm very lazy.
I must admit with my old viewer v.1, I often meet (more and more) odd characters in SL. No feet, two boxes instead of hands, another box on the head, strange body, many strange things. Sorry, no reason to say hi and start a friendly relationship (a beautiful avatar is the first thing we notice in SL, like in RL). Maybe after all, people see me like that too, with their viewer. I'm afraid I'll be very disappointed by this "new" SL.
But before that, I absolutely must learn what mesh means...
