The sad thing is that Ive made a very valuable contribution to this 
project with his NAP.pov file. As soon as I got the time to browse 
through it, I could see that. But before I could even properly comment, 
he got impatient, pissed-off, uninterested in the first place with 
POV-Ray, I don't even know what or why, and just dropped out. I can say 
at this stage that his file is the perfect vehicle to re-render the 
original granites by Daniel Mecklenburg. With some tweaking (adding an 
extra scale for instance) they even begin to look like granites. ;-)

There are parameters Ive used in NAP.pov of which I had not even be 
aware of, so I learned a number of new things about POV-Ray, and that 
progress is vital/fundamental.
