    Ok, thanks William, I'll look into the display side of it. For me, it 
would be nice to have it wider too, (if that's what you mean).

     Are you sure you didn't scroll your middle mouse button, (if you have 
one)? I'm doing that all the time in winPoV when I select a res. and then 
when the scene renders, I end up with either something small like 320x240, 
or one of my custom resolutions of 3500x2400 without realising I've done 
that!! LOL... :)

   Ok, this is something we haven't looked into yet, but you're right, in 
the vein of free stuff and good will etc., this should still be allowed. 
I'll mark it down as a priority, but it probably won't happen soon. Thanks 
for reminding me with this one.

    We're getting there. :) Thanks for your feedback William, much 
appreciated, and thanks for entering.

      ~Steve~

    Oh, no probs! Holler and scream here or send me a CHeP mail any time. 
I'll do what I can to help.  :)

Steve,
I think it would be important to publish the new rules also on the web page.

Thomas

PS I just uploaded an image for 'The Mother Hive' btw...

So, I uploaded an image for the current challenge. However, I am afraid that 
I shall not be able to vote later in December. The reason is that we are 
moving houses next week, and I am not at all sure that I shall be connected 
and online immediately. Might take a couple of weeks. I am sorry for that, 
but so you know the reason.

Thomas
