Wow, already six animations! (nothing by the name of 
"Rusty", so i guess we'll see at least one more?) and unless 
something bad happens, i guess i'll also have one ready by 
tomorrow night. Four scenes in the render queue, and 27 
hours remaining...

After thinking a bit about that, i think it may be a bad 
idea (the "overwrite previous", not the "drawings" ;) - 
overwriting same-name files on a server without 
authorization isn't really nice to do...

Just in case someone's actually caring about that ;)
after about a hundred hours of severe computer prodding, i 
feel i've got some of my workflow back - and then some :)

Mine is done, but the HTML submission page thinks that we're in the 
voting phase, either six hours early or still left over from the 
previous round.  And I can't access the FTP server with my browser, so 
that's out, too.  Grumble grumble grumble grumble...

Regards,
John

No chance of using "plain old FTP" ? - on second thought, 
why not clog the admin's mail inbox and submit your file by 
e-mail? :)

I can't connect to the FTP site with my client, although there is a 
chance that it's my ISP doing that.

I mailed it in.  Hope it works.

John

ANd for good measure, I went over to www.01ftp.com and used a web-based 
FTP client to get it in.  Hope this doesn't mess anything up.

Regards,
John
