       Real life is ok.  That's *our* challenge in this world, our real life 
3D game if you like - but REAL.

     Yeah, real life is a right royal pain sometimes, but, you know, when 
you have to confront it, then do so. Don't hold back in any way whatsoever 
for the things that are really important, like your love for your partner. 
Trust me on this.

Of course! I just meant that the admin have probably got more important
things to do than ensure the irtc schedule runs on time to the minute. In a
light-hearted tone. :-)

POV-Ray, and recreational computing in general, is a hobby. I have many. I
pursue them when I have spare time between other aspects of my life. All of
this is 'real life' as far as I'm concerned. I wouldn't expect anybody else
to behave any differently!

     Yes, I know that Bill, and I'm sorry, I wasn't having a pop at you or 
anything, I read your post and just blurted out my feelings because I'm 
having a difficult time at the moment with my wife being recently 
hospitalised. I just wasn't very 'with it' last night, that's all, Pover.

I don't know about Bill, but I didn't read your answer as any kind of 
criticism. In fact, I found it quite true (and emotional, now I know why) 
and something we are not always standing still for to consider at length. It 
was a fair reminder, especially as I happen to know exactly what you 
mean....
I hope your wife will be well soon. Lots of strength to both of you!

Thomas

No no, I had no such impression. There was nothing wrong with your post! I
was just clarifying my thinking, really. :-D

Seconded, heartily. All the best!

Bill
