I would like to add my thanks to you both for this. I would also like to call
for a big thank you to Steve (St) for setting up the TC-RTC in the interim. I
know that he has spent a great deal of effort and money on this for the
community. 

Well done! Everyone.

Regards
	Stephen

I wonder if it might be appropriate for the reborn IRTC to start off 
with a "TINA CHeP" topic...?

wooHoo! :-D

Interesting choice of seaside and smalltalk. I will have to look into those, 
and maybe give them a try on my Ubuntu box.
The use of the Seaside framework is much more in the spirit of PovRay than 
the .NET framework too, IMO. Good choice.

I am glad to see the IRTC coming back, cheers all around!

If Seaside is not a Microsoft product, then it is more in the spirit of 
POV-Ray than .NET, by virtue of that fact alone.

Okay, since nobody else has said it yet, and because I believe it
certainly is fitting in this circumstance, I'll get it out of the way:



      "W00T!!!"

:)

Only one suggestion: might we see the return of the IRTC CD 
compilations? I have years one through five (1996 - 2001), and would 
love to buy more to aid the effort, but I never saw another one after 
Year Five.
