Time For an Upgrade

Today, the computer which has gotten me in Second Life and produced the paper is in the shop, and if all goes well, later in the day of this post I'll be able to recover it with little trouble to our newspaper schedule.

As some of you are aware, there's been some chatter about Linden Labs "pulling the plug" on Viewer 1, blocking it's use as the much anticipated Mesh update won't work for it. I consider that unlikely, as the Lab probably feels Mesh will be so popular, users will adopt Viewer 2 on their own. But I probably should get the machine looked at, and maybe be able to handle the lag better.

Keep your fingers crossed, everyone. Things can still go wrong.
