19 comments15 Jan 2009 @ 21:09 by jmarc : Hey
we'll dance at the castle again sometime, right? It's a fun place to explore, 2nd life.
15 Jan 2009 @ 21:13 by susannahbe : Hi Marissa :-)...
I have heard of it but never explored....yet! Any tips if I decide to investigate?
16 Jan 2009 @ 00:02 by skookum : its easy..
and there are usually people to help.. telehubs devoted to Noobies.. very user friendly.
16 Jan 2009 @ 00:03 by skookum : jmarc

16 Jan 2009 @ 00:03 by susannahbe : Well...

16 Jan 2009 @ 21:34 by bushman : If you Play,
keep in mind the main theme of SL is role play. Although alot of people don't role play, some just use it as a place to hang out and chat. As well, so far, there isn't anything you can't do or be, only limited by your imagination and skills, and for many, the limits of your PC's graphics and speed. Laptops and Macs can run it, but keep in mind that keeping them cool is probably the most important issue to think about when running SL. I also suggest if you have 2 hard drives, to put the SL Casche and chat logs on the other hard drive, this will speed things up and take some of the presure off your main hard drive.
I'm not the general manager of a strip club or a Vampire in real life, but I do play them on SL, my name is Bushman Quandry. :}
17 Jan 2009 @ 11:07 by susannahbe : Thanks...
for the info Bushman :-) I don't think I will be exploring then until I get my other computer set up, as at present I am using a laptop that has a dodgy fan and is on its last legs, from what you've said SL would finish it off!
Thanks everybody !
17 Jan 2009 @ 19:52 by skookum : COOL BEANS
I don't really role play.. but I think someone thought I was an escort and started to hit on me.. and I was with bushy lol. I just walk around short and plump and shake my sexy ass at the clubs... I enter contests.. most of the stuff is free if you are persistent. I especially like the new people I have met.. to talk to.

I tried second life a few years ago but I couldn't get it to run smoothly on my mac and gave up. It looks like fun but I'm not willing to go to that other operating machine. I love my mac.
18 Jan 2009 @ 01:50 by bushman : lol, Hmm
Well since Ive been there since like August of 2008 there have been 4 updates to the entire program, so Im thinking what you expirianced on your Mac a few years ago is in no way representative of how the SL program works today. But yes, SL does make things run hot and I wouldnt recomend using any laptop for it, although 1000s of people do use a laptop for SL, and normaly any form of PC or laptop will shut itself down or it will reboot itself if it over heats.
18 Jan 2009 @ 11:14 by martha : Thanks bushman
for the advise. It was three or four years ago I tried second life. I do use a laptop so if i rejoin i will run it on an extra harddrive using firewire which is faster.
i also wonder if my cpu at 667 MHz might be too slow.
18 Jan 2009 @ 21:32 by bushman : Requirments
Go here and see if you can run it. :}
18 Jan 2009 @ 22:44 by skookum : you guys gotta see my
belly dance routine... you just gotta lol
18 Jan 2009 @ 23:09 by martha : Thanks Anthony
No can do on my machine. Not fast enough and also using 10.3 operating system which second life does not support. So when my banana boat comes in and I get a new computer I'll look you guys up on Second Life.
Hey Marissa do you belly dance on Second life or in real life? LOL
18 Jan 2009 @ 23:20 by susannahbe : No...
I just checked and my laptop won't run it either!
Belly dancing eh Marissa! :-) I would join you, but with a belly my size it may set off some sort of natural disaster or something! lol
20 Jan 2009 @ 17:23 by skookum : not in RL
on SL... maybe someday i can do it in real life lol
it is a place to rekindle the sense of play.. i know it has done that for me
