60,000 lines of direct pov sdl.

12,000 lines of tomcat java that emits the mushroom, reefer, volcano and 
TV frames.

69,000 lines of c++ renderfarm controllers.

6,000 lines of tomcat java for the bsac meta server (helps bsac clients 
and servers find each other)

800 lines of bash scripts to slough all of the generated .pngs around 
and call ffmpeg. ;)

Oh, you're being generous with the 10 minutes. Everything after 7:21 is 
throw away frames.  In 2003, it faded out after 5 minutes, so ... progress.
