Yes, that worked.

When trying to run pld.pov, I get:

Parse Error: Cannot pass uninitialized identifier to non-optional LValue.
at File: megatime.inc Line: 80 Col: 17

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// AutoDate
//#version unofficial MegaPov 1.21;
#version 3.63;

#declare Time = date("%H:%M:%S")
#declare Date = date("%B %d %Y")
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// TimeZone
#declare DST = 1;
#declare GMT = 0;
#declare TimeZone = -6 + DST;
#declare JulianDate = julian(val(date("%Y")),val(date("%m")),val(date("%d")));
#declare ctime = j2ctime(JulianDate);


presumably that needs to be updated to use datetime()
#local CurrentTime = datetime(now); // current date and time as a string

I will fiddle with it as time allows.
Very nice little site you have.   Lots of very interesting information.
I need whatever vitamins you take   :D
