Hi POV-ray users,
    I thought I'd drop you a note about our modeler Silo and its new ability
to export to .pov files as well as to link to POV-ray for direct renders - I
hope this is an appropriate place to post this.  Feel free to contact us if
you have any questions at inf### [at] nevercentercom.  Thanks for making POV-ray a
great product!

workflow improvements.  Silo continues to be updated and improved at a

It is but please don't post attachments in the non-binaries groups and 
don't multi-post to several groups.

Just out of curiousity (well, sort of - it's not a completely trivial question),
what's the etiquette regarding posting to a binary group with an attachement,
but cross-posting to non-binary groups? I assume it's still a no-no for the
benefit of those with slow connections....

Obviously those only downloading the non-binary groups for bandwidth 
reasons will give you the right answer.  I don't see any advantage of 
cross posting a binary to a non-binary group except forcing those who 
don't want it to read it.  Moral judgement on this it up to you.

And even when posting to a binaries group, the subject of the article
should contain information that the article has an attachment and how
big it is (some people might want to skip the biggest attachments).
