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.

Now Change Your Life

Having a hard time

I just spent all my savings on upgrading my computer, primarily so i could be up to date with Second Life. I upgraded to a 64 bit system with 8 gigs of RAM which is probably pretty standard now. Everything works fine EXCEPT SL. The system freezes after a few minutes. So I tried

1. Using recommended graphics drivers as per wiki : no difference. Tried different drivers …no good.
2. Spent hours testing RAM with no difference. Firestorm works with 4 gigs of RAM which makes having 64 bits pointless.
3. Reinstalled Windows and just installed FS, no difference.
4. Posted a jira to FS site no one has answered. This could take months.

Yesterday I spent hours researching, reading forums and posting to them. One thread decided it was my power supply that needed upgrading. Not doing that would mean dismantling the PC. This…

Hyperconnectivity is a term invented by Canadian social scientists Anabel Quan-Haase and Barry Wellman, arising from their studies of person-to-person and person-to-machine communication in networked organizations and networked societies.

[1] The term refers to the use of multiple means of communication, such as email, instant messaging, telephone, VNI_Hyperconnectivity_WP-08face-to-face contact and Web 2.0 information services.
[2] Hyperconnectivity is also a trend in computer networking in which all things that can or should communicate through the network will communicate through the network. This encompasses person-to-person, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communication. The trend is fueling large increases in bandwidth demand and changes in communications because of the complexity, diversity and integration of new applications and devices using the network. The communications equipment maker Nortel has recognized hyperconnectivity as a pervasive and growing market condition that is at the core of their business strategy. CEO Mike Zafirovski and other executives have been quoted extensively in the press referring to the hyperconnected era. Apart from network-connected devices such as landline telephones, mobile phones and computers, newly-connectable devices range from mobile devices such as PDAs, MP3 players, GPS receivers and cameras through to an ever wider collection of machines including cars[3][4] refrigerators[5][6] and coffee makers,[7] all equipped with embedded wireline or wireless[8] networking capabilities.
[9] The IP enablement of all devices is a fundamental limitation of IP version 4, and IPv6 is the enabling technology to support massive address explosions. There are other, independent, uses of the term: The U.S. Army describes hyperconnectivity as a digitization of the battlefield where all military elements are connected.
[10] Hyperconnectivity is used in medical terminology to explain billions and billions of neurons creating excessive connections, within the brain associated with schizophrenia,or epileptic seizures


This is a start, however the British call it Hyper-connectivity. Here is the Executive Summary:

In light of this we may look at The Power of Networks:

My take on this is here:

In conclusion I will make the following observations:

  • Hyperconnectivity is nothing to fear if it is managed
  • It is the medium of social changes
  • Without change we are doomed to more of the same to the ruination of the planet
  • Hyperconnectivity empowers the individual
  • Globalisation is a great thing One human race One world
  • Individualism is not threatened it is enhanced
