Long time non-raytracer coming back after, oh, I dunno, 15 years?

I decided to pick up POV-Ray again and updated my 2001 IRTC entry called Pellet
Power.

I cleaned up the code, adjusted timings, and the whole thing rendered in 5 hours
13 minutes.

I've uploaded it to YouTube.

Along the way I had to update and improve my animator.inc file and the utility
to seamlessly connect bicubic patches.

I may be back to ray-tracing more often.

Nice! The time allowed for reading the sign is slightly short maybe?
