The part that is hard to understand is that every time the wife sees
me looking over the games in the store, she asks me if I want one
for the upcoming birthday/XMas, and I *always* tell her that it would
take time away from POV-Ray.

Regards,
John

  So your wife is one of those smarter ones who, instead of complaining
about your computer usage, encourages it because better have the husband
playing with the computer at home than playing something else at the
local pub... :)

If I ever get married, my wife will have to do better than that. Just
as an example, I went to a pub after work yesterday and installed
kernel 2.5.53 on my laptop while having beer with the guys. Not to
mention that I've already taken the laptop to bed a few cold nights...
Yes, she would have to do *much* better than that.

I'm even luckier than that... my wife came in one day while I was
doing a test render for "Fantasy", saw how slow it was rendering,
and said "you really need a faster computer, don't you?" What
a wonderful woman!

	Rusty as your character is like a serial or to be continued. You do
Saturday matinee serials without the cliff hanger -- hint. 

	So to use your models they would have to fit into your thread and your
reality. For example, Rusty destroys the White House would be out of
character. Rusty meets Rustyette is not in character. 

	One appreciates the desire to procreate one's creation with a father's
pride. 

	However practice is, your model is in povray and that does not translate
to other rendering systems. So it would limit participation to povray
addicts.

I waited for this... :-(
