New System

Yes it has arrived and it is more than I expected it to be. The 27 inch monitor is so much bigger than 5 inches extra from the 22 inch. However I can seamlessly join the two monitors together. creating a space of 3890 x 1080. Because they both run at 1080p each window can be dragged to either monitor or stretched to cover both without loss of resolution nor having to be resized.

Here is the monitor set up :

Here’s what The Junkyard looks like:

Click on the picture to view better. As you can see without zooming the whole of the dance floor can be viewed. Awesome. The speed of the new system is super and I am really pleased how second life performs. Running at 18 fps in high to ultra. But I will play with the settings and see. I made a video using two monitors but the processing size is only 2048 x 500. This needs work. Here is my second attempt. Watch full screen.

hehehe I will play. should be able to get it bigger I think.

All in all I am a very happy bunny. Reckon I won’t need to upgrade for at least another month (hahaha)

Tablet

It will be several weeks before I can get a new PC so in the interim I got a tablet. Its the highest spec I could afford

ASUS MEMOPAD ME173X, MediaTek MT8125 CPU 1.2Ghz Quad-core, 1 Micro USB, 16GB Storage, 7″ HD Display

Its very good. However there is no system menu, no radar and its difficult to give out tags.

But without it I couldn’t get into second life:

I found that having chat and the keyboard takes up most of the screen:

So I bought a bluetooth keyboard and it is much better:

Navigation can be a bit tricky and I got hopelessly muddled during Carmel’s set. However as you should have guessed by now the patrons and staff are very tolerant and understanding. Have to admit tho I am not as professional as I would like but it should only be a couple more weeks.
