Well, it's dead in the water for now, for all practical purposes.
(my opinion, of course).

There's a stand-in/replacement being run by members of the irtc.stills 
group where "us anim people" can also particpate.

Current topic is "The Black Robe" (title of an 19th century novel, 
IIRC), which may be interpreted as one sees fit. The stills round on 
that has just finished (June 30th), the anims round goes on for another 
two months.


Rather nice, automated site (go to: "public view" or "register" to vote).

Participant turnout is quite low at the moment, but better than a 
non-functioning IRTC (gah, did i really write that...?)

Will hopefully get better as the word is spread.

I'm flipflopping between a more action-oriented ("mad wizard") or more 
atmosphere-oriented ("loss mourning") interpretation of "black robe" for 
now, but do intend to produce a contribution...
