Riya….Definitely Run on an idle PC or at night March 24, 2006Posted by Zack W. Handley in Best Stuff, Google, Search, VeryUseful, Web 2.0.
I guess I didn’t read the instructions (what’s new) but the Riya uploader distributes much of the photo processing to the user PC (which makes sense economically). For the first two days I was running it on an idle PC with Outlook, Google Desktop, Firefox, AntiVirus…basically all kinds of crap.
WELL, this AM, I powered down all processes except Riya and it is uploading twice as fast. This is a 2.5 yo machine (1.99 GHz Athlon) and we are now uploading 200 5-7MegaPix pics per hour up from 100 before I cleared the system tray.
