Well, i've got no objections to continuing a long-standing IRTC

It really is. I thought i could do a "participate once a year" schedule 
(after all, there *are* things like Real Life [don't need an additional 
"Second Life", thankyouverymuch ;) ] or "can't make head nor tail of 
that topic", and now that i've finally gotten a comfortable workflow... 
like you said.

animation entries to their plans for the interim page. Not sure if this 
stand-in contest is going to be POV only, or as open as the IRTC.
