Does that mean that there's a new IRTC admin? (or is it just 
figure-of-speech? ;)

Regarding the "vote only during deadline" thing:

Ah, might as well brace myself for a solid (0/0/0) rating 
this time, then ;)

Nah, it's just throwing more time than i probably should at 
a hobby ... :) though i may later give this one enough 
polish so that i can enter it at our local short film 
festival next year - if i dare. Somehow, no matter what i 
try, it never feels "good enough" to me.

Just wait until you've seen the monk's walk cycle. Ugly :( 
despite that i've just spent three hours placing 500 
keyframes. Guess i'll need clever editing to pick the best 
pieces, keeping fingers crossed that the cloth effect hides 
the knees... and cut it up into short 3-seconds-pieces to 
bring some feeling of speed to the intro sequence.

Well, here goes nothing. I've just started the overnight 
render because i'm under the "running-out-of-time" feeling 
again. Am robably going to throw away the result first thing 
in the morning because i've missed something ...

Man, do i admire Jon VanSickle and his robots with their 
built-in leg logic. These can walk by themselves, if i've 
read the descriptions of previous rounds correctly. That 
sure is handy...
