  IRTC CD-ROMs? (Message 1 to 4 of 4)

I am looking for copies of the IRTC CD-ROMs that used to be for sale on the
POV-Ray site.  These would have been available up until 2005, and there were
five years' worth (I think).  I'm mostly interested because, while most entries
are still available from irtc.org, some of the disc descriptions mention having
higher resolution renders or uncompressed image formats.


Does anyone have copies of these kicking around?  Seems at least like something
good to put up on the Internet Archive, maybe.

If someone does, then they should try to get it hosted somewhere like here :

source codes :
https://www.softwareheritage.org/

CDROMS :

I've uploaded the full set to the POV/IRTC server and will make them 
available once I've updated the HTML to remove some broken links to our 
website.
