I do my yearly walk around Fanatasy faire in Second life and find so many nice objects. Mesh really makes SL to be more near game graphics. And many new animesh animals and dragons. My viewer have a nice framerate even on a table like this. It is not Linden lab but all the talented creators who make all the new things. It makes me happy and get me a new hope that SL will be around for many years.
The next problem is lag. There have to be a server configuration that really will reduce lag. I do not know how LL servers take care of our avatars walking around but i think maybe special servers or faster networks. Something have to be done.
