Some progress on my epic.  I added an animated TV and I "finished" my 
mushroom explosion. A couple of glitches to fix, and I lost the initial 
punch in the explosion; it's a very mellow explosion.

Oh, if you've already seen it, start at the 6' mark.

That animation must have taken a *LOT* of coding!! Congrats on the gargantuan
effort. I like your fireplace fire; it 'pops and crackles.'

Even though the video is 16 minutes long, the animation fades out at the
10-minute mark :-(

Always a pleasure to see the progress of this animation!

Now, you left us worried. How is the child going to escape from the 
predicament it created in the first place?

Thanks!

Oh, you're being generous with the 10 minutes. Everything after 7:21 is 
throw away frames.  In 2003, it faded out after 5 minutes, so ... progress.

Yes, we povers are just people... just single people, not global 
mega-corporations like Disney who churn out feature-length animation 
movies on a yearly basis... and none of us may live long enough to 
produce such a work on his/her own! Sometimes I wish I was the entire 
Internet, filled with determination to create Khyberspace...

Nevertheless, see you there!

After seeing the animation it was clear to me that a lot of work went into it,
and these numbers only illustrate that. That's an impressive amount of work,
dedication, and persistence (pun intended). Well done! It will be interesting to
see how it further evolves.

Thanks for sharing,
Erwin

That sums it up very well and I agree.
Well done Dick.
