Linking Discord to Firestorm

A new feature is apparently out in Firestorm letting people link their Discord accounts to the Firestorm viewer.  This feature ONLY works with the Discord ap.    For those who haven't installed the Discord ap but use the web version (as I now again do) I just wanted to issue a warning.   I had major, MAJOR issues with my computer over in Sansar last year. It took awhile to find the culprit but it turned out to be the Discord ap which runs in the background and is VERY VERY GREEDY.  

 

So for folks that try this, be aware you may have issues. Not Firestorm's fault; it is Discord :D.

Always this greedy greedy Discord app using 0.2% CPU and 80MB RAM... ;)

0.2% and 177mb.  which is nothing,  well nothing if you have a system that has a ton of ram, and playing SL people need to have a ton of ram.   but heh this is SL, I see people trying to play it with vista still.

Are you running Linux by any chance?

discord is a super memory hog on Linux, sometimes it’ll sit at 50-60mb on idle in the background but other times it’ll build up to like 1gb+ for seemingly no reason 

you can always just irc passthrough and then it’ll use 12mb of ram.

I was thinking about running Discord in Firestorm but I read a warning that it was not recommended if you are admin.  I am unsure if that means Firestorm Admin, Discord admin or admin on my own computer but I am assuming that it means admin on your own computer.  Does anyone know anything more about this?  Is this security warning or technical?

Going to need a source on this, lots of us have been using it connected to discord since the function became a function.

When they say "not recommended if you are a admin", they mean don't run discord or Firestorm as a admin(I. E. Right clicking a icon and choosing "run as admin"). You should never run a program as admin unless you trust said program, and that it needs to make system changes(such as installing). If for some reason you need to run either as admin for it to run, there is likely a underlying folder or file permission issue.

If you run only Firestorm or only discord as admin, with the other running under your user account(non-privileged account), they will be unable to communicate with each other over IPC(inter process communication, similar to IP sockets, but typically more secure as there are no open ports).
