That's the ATI graphics card I got with my computer, nearly three years beforehand. It became quite outdated. After Second Life made the switch to the Windlight engine, I had serious issues, both with the glitched texture meshes I call "jaggies", and crashes and lockups galore. If I were to survive at a party like this, I had to turn my graphics down as much as they could, and I'd still have issues. Enough was enough. It was time to get a new graphics card.

I had since had an Nvidia Geforce FX6600 installed and running. While I still had the occasional crash and lockup, it was a major improvement (until my computer started dying a couple months later). And the bonus of now being able to use medium graphics settings regularly was quite nice.

I had already ordered the card when this shot was taken. It is to serve as a reminder that I was much better off than I use to be.

Still, the rave was a real blast. And I loved wearing my rave gear. I even colored my tail, chestfur, and plush for the event (though unfortunately the paint didn't come out of my fur very easily). Probably one of my favorite events at RCFM. But it definately could've been better, had I been able to take advantage of all the effects that were going on in that room at the time.
