I'm always around, Thomas :D

There was a granite material a posted a while ago, but the horrible search
indexing method g00gl3 (and other engines) use has made it vanish into thin air.
It's still there, I'm sure. Maybe I'll browse through this group to find it, but
then again, it probably doesn't matter (but it does matter in the sense that we
can't perform proper searches on these groups).

I haven't been following things too closely, but regarding granite, I always
assumed you could never go wrong with the main three constituents: quartz;
feldspar; mica. Crackle solid seemed like a good choice, since you could use a
map to separate the minerals. Not entirely realistic, but there's always a point
at which you have to choose speed over realism, I guess, yeah? Anyway, I may try
to bend you your ear at a later date regarding geology, if you don't mind. I
know there's /something/ I want to know, but it's slipped my mind atm :/

Take care,
