I will certainly check it out.  I thought it was interesting that Pixar 
has the same effect on him as it does on me.  I have to tell myself, "I 
am one guy. At the end of a Pixar movie, there are thousands credited to 
the project. I fill all of those roles myself (except Production 
Babies), so I'm not doing too bad".

You must have wondered why I was wasting 2:02 on the opening credits, 
before anything happens. :)

One interesting thing, musicians count 1-2-3-4 and for POV-Ray, the 
beats are 0-1-2-3. This kills me. I have a macro that gives me clock 
from a measure/beat number:

#declare LookToKitchenMoveStart	= Measure(210,2);

and I am constantly thinking '3' is the middle of a measure.  I shall 
never get used to this.

The incrementing numbers line up to my storyboard:
