all of them suck very much.  I wish ruby or python were far more widespread with
their respective and amazing web toolkits...

http://www.mono-project.com/ASP.NET

Never used ASP myself (not into web stuff). Mono works great, though.

Actually, I understand that's the one thing that Mono *is* very 
compatible with, because it doesn't really have to touch any system 
libraries like windowing stuff.  I've read you don't even need to 
recompile pages.

We use PHP, and the POVCOMP code is written in it. The server runs Apache 2
on FreeBSD.

If, however, as a few in this thread have suggested, it is possible to run
C#/ASP.NET on a Linux system I would be happy to set this up, and in fact
would even be quite interested in seeing if it would work well. I am not a
great fan of PHP, even though it's used extensively throughout the POV
site. (Basically I don't mind it but I would welcome something better).

Hello,

While I have never attempted to use the .NET framework on linux, I 
understand it is possible, and seems to be growing in popularity.
Hell, I'd be willing to give it a shot.

Like I said, I am more than willing to throw in my share of code on this.
I *do* have most of the code needed for the features I laid out sitting on 
my hdd in chunks right now from other projects and web apps I've built.

Note that I do not want to be the only one working on this though!
(bathed in gastly light from the baleful eye of the entire pov community) 
:-D

It would be nice to get a few devs together and establish some sort of 
consensus on the lang/platform/db/framework to be used(*without* infinite 
debate), and throw some code together in a quick/dirty/small proof of 
concept, and then go from there.  Sort of a feasibility study.

You know where I am going with the operation of the site, and know where my 
vote is cast.

I can be of most use to the project if it uses .NET, but honestly I don't 
even care if the app is written in sumerian slashed into the burning flesh 
of the damned by Abezithibod himself...

I just want the IRTC back and wouldn't at all mind helping. :-p

So whats next? :-)

If I may...

What problem are we trying to address that the TC-RTC does not? You can 
certainly argue that the TC-RTC is a step backwards from the IRTC in 
some ways--but I don't see anyone arguing that. People are just 
pretending that the TC-RTC doesn't exist.

Is the problem that the TC-RTC has a name that starts with TC instead of I?

Hi, (nice forest macro, by the way..it looks great)

I intend no offense to the TC-RTC, and wish to avoid tertiary debate, but I 
do feel the need to state you made a very good case for the re-animation of 
the IRTC:

>People are just pretending that the TC-RTC doesn't exist.

That is a big problem. If people will not use something for any number of 
reasons it should/must be replaced.

I didn't even know the TC-RTC existed, its bookmarked now, but the above 
point is still very valid.

Additionally:

>What problem are we trying to address that the TC-RTC does not? You can 
>certainly argue that the TC-RTC is a step backwards from the IRTC in some 
>ways

There are many RTCs out there, I guess its just a matter of exposure, niche 
and user preference.
Perhaps the TC-RTC is a step back, I don't know. I'll trust you there.

In the end, since we *can* ressurect the IRTC with improvements, and people 
*would* use it and *do* want it back ....I say, why not?
:-D

However I guess you could put a poll on the povray and/or irtc homepage.

No, it should be improved.
