    Yes, you sure can, people do it all the time. Since the free accounts don't require payment info you can whip out as many as you want.


    Two premium accounts is more difficult, but still doable, I have one through my credit card, and another through paypal

    But how do I play them both at the same time?

     

    When I try to start it again (on same computer) it tells me its runing.

    Star Wars Galaxies had a way to play two accounts on same computer, maybe there is a way for SL too. (?)

    To run multiple instances of SL:


    1.: Right-click the shortcut to SL, click properties.


    2.: In the "Target" path field, add this at the end: -multiple - and


    3.: Click OK and now you can run multiple instances of the SL client.


    It will slow your system down so much you can hardly use it for anything else without one of the clients (or all) crashing, though. So, maybe you'd want to look at a text-based client instead.


    SLEEK is one of those. Open source text-based SL client:

    If Second Life causes your computer to "Lag" its time to upgrade this game is completely outdated and uses very little of the current Quad-Core CPU / Quad-Crossfire / Tri-Sli systems.

    I t uses very little of a quad core but 100% of a single core.  this program is hard on a slow system. I run it with XP, on a 1.8 Ghz and its taxing my system. Don't even try running 2 at the same time without at least a duel core. minimizing the the play window will lower CPU use, if your not using both instances at the same time.

    I thought I saw an option in the latest viewer 2 to run multiple clients. Before my PC was killed by a a storm, I logged on to like 6 accounts at a time (it was a dual core 3.0ghz, 9800 gt 512mb i think and only 3GB of ram. You dont even really need a below average gfx card to run SL. 

     

    Don't ask why I used 6 alts at once.
