Thirty years of Saturn, at 2 years per second, rendered in 2005.  The 
textures are procedural, but partially based on real measurements. 
Opposition surge was not modeled.

Sorry, no monolith, and my name isn't Dave.

Then and now, I knew very little about MPEG compression, so I don't know 
if this is optimal.

Sweet! May I Commodore64ize and AtariSTize your video?

See you in Khyberspace!

Yes, so long as you don't sell them.

Jörg is a Dutchman. Not making money is a heresy. They are worse than 
the Scots. ;-)

tsk, tsk! A Dutchman?! I had not realised that we had expanded our 
territories. Good to know! :-)

I could have sworn Jörg lived in the Netherlands. My memory must be 
going. Ah well, it's taken long enough.

Sorry Jörg.

If Jörg were a Dutchman, he wouldn't be able to afford the Umlaut-dots.
They're quality products made in Germany, and we don't sell them cheap.

So that is why they are not used for UberPov?

Okay I was wrong. Write the date in your diary for reference. :)

Well, one of central tenets of German Engineering is "Why only use 2 parts, when
you can accomplish the same task with 50 high-precision fully articulated hand
crafted mirror-polished moving parts?"

So, they're expensive, on overseas back-order, and since each umlaut is a
precision-coded scalable vector true type WYSIWYG fontpiece made from 7
interlocking pieces.   Most (l)users don't have monitors of high enough
resolution, or video cards to drive them, let alone display them at the Proper
Gamma Setting(TM).

:D

No arguing about the precision and shininess of German engineering. But 
Umlauts originally were the product of Linotype hot metal splatter. 
Rather than reset the type with new slugs. They became a feature.
