SL Stats

Written 22 January, 2007

SL Stats

I saw an interesting feature on Mordecai Scaggs’ blog the other day, and you’ll see it on mine now—Second Life Stats.

It’s the little box you see at the left of the screen. It gives my online stats, and the amount of time I’ve spent on Second Life.

You’d better believe I’ve spent more time in SL than the indicator shows. It started counting only after I downloaded the small applet from the SLprofiles website.

If it showed how much time I’ve actually spent in SL, it would be positively frightening!

Now that Pele is finished, I’m dedicating my Second Life to overtaking Mordecai, who has a head start of about two weeks.

SL Stats runs from an applet you download from the website. It will also run from a HUD that you can pick up in-world. It’s free, and it has some handy features, especially an easy teleport voice command, but it runs on channel one, like the Mysti-Tool, and I’m not sure it can be easily reassigned to another frequency. So I installed the program.

SL Profiles lets you post pictures and information about both your first or second lives. I’m not sure how much time I’ll spend entering information, as it keeps my out of SL—but it’s nice to know it’s available.

Thanks, Mordecai, for pointing me to the website.

OMG, have I been in world THAT much?
