I thought so too. I was overly impressed by the differences in which the
entrants conveyed the topic. Each one of them (including me of course), had
something going for 'it' as an individual piece. I liked that side of it.
(Afterthought: Thinking about it, when the IRTC had those many entrants,
(and there were many topics that did, and more), well, the expectancy of
seeing those *new* images was always a big thing for me. You knew you were
going to sit down for two cups of coffee and see something someone took time
over to do the best they could. It was refreshing and inspirational.)

That's a good and valid point, much like the IRTC.
I also think that

Yes, I agree, let's just call it TINA CHeP. WE all know how it
originated, and if anyone doesn't know, I'll write up a nice history page
some time - I have enough info on this machine to be accurate.

Yes, sure, I'm just glad that I can offer something back in return for
all the comments, crits, laughs, smilies, <whatever>, that have been
directed my way over the years. It's all helped me no end in the six or so
years that I've been around, and I still seem to keep improving here and
there as a result, and that, makes me happy.
So, you want a topic all? I propose Mike the Elders' topic for now -
'Before and After'. I liked this idea when he first mentioned it, and I
think we can all 'do it'. What say you?
