As usual, where it's ended up wasn't what I started towards.

Where it's ended up is a vaguely-classical vase generator. I like it. It's a bit
overkill for the stairs and rails and so on, but they fit the style. The
generator is quite generic too, so I think I'll put it into its own include
file. Just need to add some normals and tidy up a bit...

Reading again my own post, I think I wanted to say: "We should never be 
short on vase generators". English... tricky... ;-)

Whoa, easy does it.   The guy is trying.

Don't ... get short with him, Bud.  He hasn't urned that kind of abuse.
Knowing English is one thing - bending it to one's will is a whole different
kettle of swimmy things.  It's not like he's smoking pot or anything - he's more
of a dried frog pill kinda guy.

Maybe I'm just cranky because I just emptied the last of my coffee carafe, but
this whole last part of the thread seems to be a crock.


:D

Living in the Netherlands and not smoking pot?  That's like living in
the Caribbean and not drinking rum.

Though I confess, I'm not a rum kinda guy.
