Torley Linden wrote a post on the official Linden blog about how to run multiple viewers at the same time on Second life.
Now I was wondering why you should use multiple viewers, as to me, one viewer is difficult enough, without crashing. But I know some avatars who use more than one avatar at the same time.
According Torley the following usages could occur:
- Reproducing bugs (like VWR-3123) that require more than one avatar.
- Attending two “can’t-miss” events in different locations.
- Filming movies (machinima) with another avie as a “stand-in”.
- Transferring and organizing inventory between accounts without having to log on and off repeatedly (waste of time!).
- Talking to yourself.
Attending more than one event, would only be interesting if you don't have to be as one avatar at both places.
Filming movies....than you have to be a real lonesome avatar, not having friends who could help you out to make the movie.
organizing your inventory....if one is a mess, than the other will not be any better, but for transferring money, it could be useful.
And why not talking to yourself on a lonely night??? Yes, that would be it, when there is nobody left on second life, and I need a chat. That will only happen when the grid is down, but then again, I can not log in....euh?
But apparently there are more people interested in this tutorial, and I was wondering why.. Can anybody tell me, besides these above mentioned points, as these are not limited, why we should log in with multiple viewers? As told, it will slow down your PC......
