The FTP server hasn't changed yet, and it looks like there's 
only going to be three entries this time. I'm hoping for a 
topic that immediately gets my mental wheels spinning - 
"Water and Waves" took me six weeks to come up with 
something i liked, and then i ran straight into some 
real-life deadlines...

Wouldn't you know it. Just posted, already obsoleted. ;)

Next topic: "Technology".

OK, on to the drawing board!

Now that's one that is so open that probably any anim made with a computer
can said to be on-topic.  I always bristle whenever the topic seems like
it's more of an invitation to make a demonstration piece for exhaustive
photorealism than it is for storytelling. This one is more open.

I've typically had computer problems the past year or so which required as
much attention as did the raytracing. It's because I've been sloughing
through a different Linux distro on my boxes almost every quarter.  My
latest infatuation is with a HDD install of Knoppix.

Aargh.  I've forgotten, yet again, where to find the ftp "new topic" page.
Help, please!

Thanks

Either use a terminal and run "ftp ftp.irtc.org", user 
"anonymous", and read the welcome message, or point your 
browser to:

http://www.irtc.org/ftp/pub/anims/incoming/

Depending on your browser, the welcome message may be 
visible there, too.

I'm still holding off until the current topic page is 
updated, because sometimes the notes there are useful for 
defining the topic a bit further... (real technology? Sci-Fi 
tech? ancient tech? retro style? or anything?)

http://www.irtc.org/anims/curtopic.html

(though this page usually suffers from "real-world lag", 
i.e. gets updated once the admins find the time)

Thanks!  That's the one I was looking for.

While we're on the subject of "next topic" - i noticed that 
the animation's web page seems a bit over due, even after i 
cleared my browser cache...?

I recall reading about a change in the admin team, and there 
may be some "holiday gap" or other issues, but ... anybody 
out there listening?
