The Parhoonian Express on a run from Syrtis Major to Parhoon.  It is a monorail
designed off the 1877 Philadelphia Exposition where one of these was in actual
operation.

Looking to make use of the fog and colors I put in my earlier Syrtis Major work.
The idea is to make the landscape more alien without it looking inhabitable.

General question: How do you attach multiple files to an image posting?

Ironically, real images of Martian landscapes look far from alien to me,
although they are totally uninhabitable.

I don't think it has ever been possible through the Web interface.  I
use a newsreader (Thunderbird now, Opera in the past).

Nice.  Good modeling, I hope to see more developments   :)

This reminded me that I just recently downloaded an old inc file by Mikael
Carneholm: "SmokeGen, smoke generator, smoke effect, plugin, POV-Ray"
I haven't unzipped it or looked at the code, but it's supposed to make smoke
that follows your object...

Use a newsreader of some sort, not the web interface.

Oh yes! Mikael's is a nice one to use indeed. Which reminds me that I 
should make a list of /all/ the goodies I have collected over the past 
twenty years or so... there are a lot of forgotten/hidden nuggets there 
which might be worth of resurrection.

Interessing scene! To attach multiple images to a newsgroup post you 
should try to use Thunderbird to access and post to the newsgroups. I 
tried to do this with my latest WIP. Hope it has worked...

Best regards
