I really enjoyed reading the Zine. Particularly loved the animated draw tutorials. Cyphre's point about View being larger than VID and thus the need to show off View more was well put. Great work contributors! Brett.

Yes it's good. I feel bad I haven't contributed anything. I noticed in Cyphre's draw tutorial this line of code: r: square-root ((power p/x 2) + (power p/y 2)) In tests I conducted recently I discovered that using power is only faster for powers >= 5. Better, then, to write simply: r: square-root ((p/x * p/x) + (p/y * p/y)) I remember this was discussed a long time ago, by more ancient rebols. This might also save a few cycles. Have to test it though: p2: p * p r: square-root (p2/x + p2/y) Anton.
