Mr. Froehlich,

Let me apologize for any semantic errors I may have made in my previous
language.  As must be obvious to you by now, we find ourselves in the
middle of a great confusion surrounding the relationship between the
Pov-Team and the IRTC, especially to those of us on the outside, so you
must forgive our ignorance.  I meant to cast no blame at the Pov-Team
concerning the current situation with the IRTC; I simply chose my words to
best fit the situation as I understood it.

We appreciate your clarifications, and are pleased to learn that the servers
hosting povray.org and irtc.org are running problem-free.  We all greatly
appreciate the generosity and charity of people like Chris Cason and the
members of the Pov-Team, and, of course, the IRTC administrators
themselves.  If not for all of your hard work none of the enjoyment and
challenge of Povray would be possible.

Please forgive my frustration, as I am simply trying to make heads or tails
out of the current situation, and again I thank you for your words of

-Isaac K
