Ok, I downloaded Second Life, because I see more and more people using it for political activism. Not just online, but meeting for conferences from around the country. The event that I'm trying to collect money to attend, which is the Beyond Broadcast 2007 event sponsored by M.I.T., is holding something on their Second Life campus. So, what the hell.
I had to upgrade my video driver to the latest version. That was ok. I know I have one of the slowest machines out there, only 750MHz. It works for text editing. It doesn't seem to work well in VR.
Time to start saving money for a new system. Oh, Joy.
