I recently met on SL a woman (but never sure, lol) living in England, who wanted to spend a weekend with me (as you know, I'm in France, but not so far away). I told her it was not a good idea... ;D



It was just as well...your spouse probably wouldn't have let you keep her anyway!!  ;D

All things in moderation is my take.

Just wondering ; have they said anything about upgrading the graphics in SL yet ?  It's about time they did - maybe it would slow things down too much though.

I have an overclocked GeForce4 4200TI 64MB from the Middle Ages, which runs fine with SL.

That's why I hope they don't plan to improve anything. :(

Suppose it depends on your outlook on it...for those more interested in the fun/social aspect its probably fine just as it is.

For people like myself, it just looks like something I used to play with on my old Win98 computer....

Now, as always, there will be those who are upset (but owning a PC in the first place imo is admitting that you will need to constantly upgrade as and when times dictate), but if they were to cross say Half Life 2 graphics into a social world like SL...then I may be very interested...

You're right, Mav. Of course, it's always more pleasant to have an up-to-date powerful computer with the good graphics card. But not very funny to always having in mind that all that is still obsolete, lol. :(

I noticed that the image quality is important and evident when I'm just the spectator of a game. But when I'm inside, I'm too busy for admiring the landscape. Driving a Ferrari in the Monaco Grand Prix, or trying to land a 747 on Kennedy Airport requires a lot of concentration. That's why I still have fun with my previous PC (Celeron400 & 3Dfx Voodoo3, lol). :)

Yes, I'd like to have a better image in SL. But if I change the graphics card, I've to change the power supply too. And in SL, because of my bad English and slow typing, my only problem is to quickly reply to several IMs at once. So the only thing I must update is myself... ;D

Wait until they make a game that uses 3D glasses - not the red/blue ones but the ones with dual screens - one for each eye. That would be cool.

Cool ideas, you both. Wait and see...

And then, sure that age-old question of money will reappear. ;D

I've had a pair of 3D glasses for many years that do not have red/green lenses but rather clear ones.
The lenses contain an electronic shutter that opens and closes in an alternating fashion and it's so
fast that the eyes don't distinguish the flicker.

Some of the demo games were racing, motorcross, skiing, etc. and one demo showed a rotating
image that actually looked as it was floating 4-5 feet in front of the monitor! It made one want to
reach out and try to touch it.

I still have them around here somewhere in their case. My friend and I each got a pair at a local
computer show.

Oh yes Art, I remember having seen reports about that system, some years ago. I've found this:

I guess it's the same kind of glasses but I've some serious doubts about the 3D quality, obtained from a 2D image. And I'm sure that your system was a real 3D one. :)

GT40,

Thanks...it was the X3D software and (I think) glasses. My friend and I were each made a deal for several CD's of software programs, games, etc., a wired and wireless pair of glasses for about $40 give or take as it was many years ago at a computer show.

Actually the quality was surprisingly good and especially so compared to those horrid red/green glasses. These actually worked as advertised (surprise...surprise) and gave us lots of laughs, fun and entertainment for several years. I have to see if I can locate them....
