 But, then, where would we send our submissions to?

    I have 100Mb's of personal web space doing nothing at the moment, so I 
could host the images.

     If everyone is in agreement with this, I'll post the address to send 
the Zips to.

    Would we still have the images capped at 250kb's? Also, I'm still not 
clear if the topic has been chosen yet?

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
insight.

-Isaac K

I'm assuming that Bruno's post in the previous thread is the one we're going 
with i.e. "This is not a chequered plane" (TINA CheP)

I'd just like to say, I've been watching this discussion with interest, and
I too sincerely hope the IRTC isn't dead but just pining for the fjords.
Hopefully, it has not ceased to be, but will shortly muscle up to those
bars and VOOM!

This mini-round of the unofficial Competition for Raytracing to be found on
the Internet will no doubt keep the flame alive for the time being. On a
more practical note, watch out, I've got some ideas for submission too! :-)

      Damn, I've nearly finished mine now. There's got to be something more 
I can do to it... <thinks...>
