    As was mine, and I placed 7th, and I am *well chuffed* with that!  :)

     Is there a problem with using a modelling prog for the IRTC  instead of 
CSG in PoV-Ray, Mike?  After all, the IRTC is not PoV-Ray related. I thought 
that this was a -general- raytracing comp. where any modelling prog and 
raytracer would be exceptable regardless of the raytracing program used?
