I’m not sure what’s up with my download speeds this week, but by god, it’s like I’m back in the days of “Ruth”! Textures aren’t loading completely….and…I….am….lagging……everywhere I goooooooo. Oi! Last night I just wanted to take a few shots at this beautiful sim I found called Timeless Memories. I was the only avatar there, it was quiet, I wasn’t wearing anything with scripts and yet….I couldn’t get my camera to move, I couldn’t sit down, I couldn’t walk and……I couldn’t see my left eye. I was ready to throw my computer through a window. All week, I’ve had issues like this despite my normally blindlingly fast wireless (that isn’t sarcasm, it’s really reliable and super fast). I have 2 Nvidia graphics cards in my laptop and usually roll around SL on ultra graphics with every shadow available, but last night, I wandered around, missing my eye and bumping into walls, trees and falling off docks.
After 15 minutes, my eye finally loaded, but I still couldn’t move anywhere. All week, I didn’t build because I couldn’t take it, I tried to sail, but kept slamming into land, I tried to ride my poor horses and that was an utter fail as well. When I come out of SL, everything is as it should be, full speed ahead, no downloading issues at all. So, this is my rant and I’m sticking to it! I darned well better resolve soon or I’m going to take a page from my friend Paul Woodrunner’s book and try to friend Governor Linden and give him a piece of my mind!
