You are right <slapping my face> <slapping my face> ...I needed that! 

I was looking into trying to run the reverse-engineered version of the
SecondLife server stuff, which relies heavily on mono. But <slapping my
face> they run Linux on their servers, so... I doubt that they would
rely on something so horrendously system intensive to actually run

So, just maybe <puts on thinking cap and taps chin> they don't use it?
Anyone know the REAL DEAL?? I doubt that anyone could successfully run
such servers in that fashion. Ric
