Cool Jaime.

As someone else said though.  I am curous what you would have offered 
about your image had you not been timed out when you uploaded it.

Ditto what Jaime said, Warp.  No sweat here about any of your comments 
on mine or any other entry.  Just waiting to see the full text at some 
point.

I got a kick out of this truncation:

--- From Mike the Elder:
My critique consists of five basic points: <end transmission>

Reminds me of a "game" I like to play -- *very* rarely, 'cause it could 
*quickly* become annoying.

"This guy I know walked past that building after dark once ..."
"I heard about this volunteer who was feeding the lions at the zoo ..."
"That reminds me of a joke ..." (credit to wife for that one)

AND??!!??!??!??

"and what?"
"... and he bought a Coke at the gas station next door."
"... and the lions ate the food."
"... no joke in particular, just reminds me of a joke."

   The first time it timed out, and I didn't save the descriptions (I should
remember to save them to a local file next time, just in case). The second
time I just entered "test", to quickly submit the entry and test if it was
really a timeout problem, as Warp suggested... I somehow assumed that I will
be able later to edit the descriptions... :(

   In any case, there was nothing interesting in my descriptions... my only
concern is that I didn't credit the author of the butterfly model (Toru
Miyazawa, http://toucan.web.infoseek.co.jp/3DCG/3ds/FlowerModelsE.html).

   The image description was just excuses for the lack of originality, and
the techniques description was rather short. The only point worth mentioning
is that I used mostly old objects and techniques to quickly create an entry,
as my only real purpose was to help testing the new IRTC engine.

I hadn't seen the humor there, but now that you point it out...

  I suppose it's lucky that the comments are not currently visible to
people without an irtc account due to the technical glitch (and I assume
most people who have an account will read this newsgroup as well). That
lessens the damage.

  Still, I would feel more at ease if the comments were hidden until the
problems are solved.

I hope to see you testing the IRTC engine in future rounds as well..
