I lost a year. In my gallery at Renderosity, the last image is dated 9/13/2004, and I commmented that "I'm glad to be back". I didn't stay long. As a reminder, I posted that image in my VChira fractal gallery, and renamed it: I Will Not Go To Sleep Again.
I will show you a fractal in a handful of dust. I saw fractals generated with the "Dust Fractal" program years ago - and would have loved to have tried it. The only person displaying Dust Fractal images said the author of the software had disappeared. I gave up finding it, and couldn't tell you what made me drop it into Google tonight. But there it was. Now I can make dust fractals too.
