Thanks. Love to hear that.

Looks like I goofed that one. You should be able to find one called 
"blink.pov" in the GitHub repo, right here:


Apparently the revision I built was not the one tagged 
"v1.37.0.0-beta.7", but the commit right before that (83d4165). 
Fortunately the missing sample scene is the only thing that's different 
between the two.

I won't do that. UberPOV is intended to be a collection of patches, not 
of fixes. If it's broken in POV-Ray, that's where it should be fixed.

I'll therefore submit it to the POV-Ray repo.

If you intend to provide more fixes, samples, templates etc., feel free 
to create your own fork of the POV-Ray repo on GitHub, make changes on 
that fork as you see fit, and then submit those changes as a pull 
request. Once you have gone through setting up that fork and installing 
a Git client (I'd recommend Atlassian SourceTree), I think that's the 
easiest procedure for all involved.
