Hi, Thomas

Where would I find the "DirectCode" plugin, and how easy is it to install and
use. I too have used Moray and Povray for years, but that came to a crashing
halt when I was forced to start using Vista. It has been at least 5 years since
using these programs, and I'm finding it difficult to reaquaint myself with the
ins and outs of them.

Thanks for giving me a hint as to what to do
