Oh yes, the description... After i read the "Impostor" line on 
FTP, I had some immediate ideas for that (in the "dictionary" 
[Langenscheidt's Edition] meaning which seems to go along the 
lines of "cheat, deceive, betray"), but the description seemed a 
bit narrow for most of them - and the "official" guideline seems 
to be only about a person impersonating another one (which is the 
same that my Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary offers).

I sure hope i'll FINALLY again find the time to do something... 
i've made pencil doodles and storybook sketches for all of the 
last topics, but never found the time to really animate anything.
Learned a lot about spline mesh morphing, though...

The one i want to do for "Impostor!" seems to be on the 
borderline of the topic (as defined in the guideline - it should 
be OK when using Impostor). Oh well... worst thing could be a 0 
for "interpretation of topic" :)
