I find myself suddenly inclined to tackle a serious pov project, but it's 
too close to the stills deadline and there's not yet any word on the next 
anim topic... sigh...

Hopefully it'll be something that inspires me, I keep getting mental blocks 
when I see the topic!

Come on, seriously, what's the new topic? We've already wasted 5 days of 
good rendering time...

I second that... i'm not expecting a surprise overnight 
update to the website ;) - i'd be happy with a simple 
newsgroup or mail posting...

I'm guessing this has something to do with it (snipped from the IRTC mailing
list):

Still, it would be nice to know what the next *topic* was. I guess the
consolation is that (as John found out) the system will apparently allow
you to submit your entries after the deadline. :-)

The admins have stated in times past that the server does not slam the 
gate down, so to speak, at the deadline.  Instead, a human being tells 
the server to stop accepting submissions, at the deadline, or sometime 
after that.  In this case, the human being has not gotten around to it.

I suppose that it would be fair if everyone knew this, so that more 
people could jump on the wagon, but life in unfair.

Regards,
John

Oh my, it's two weeks now. I really don't mind at all if the 
processing of the last round is delayed (voting and all), 
but it'd be very nice to have at least the topic for the 
current one... can't start tinkering without at least some 
direction to head to.

I've looked through the topic suggestion system, but there's 
no hint there, either.

Maybe a cgi script that could be fed with the upcoming 
topics and their "trigger dates" would be helpful? I could 
supply some PHP script for that ;)

Not sure if it's really necessary to repeat here (are there 
users relying solely on the newsgroups?), but the new anim 
topic is "Dance".

The July 2004 topic was "Dancing."

Do I have to do another animation with square-dancing robots?

John

No fair. You've already got everything and just need to 
change a few colors. That's a two-years head start ;)

Just kidding...
