I thought I'd got a reasonably good graphics card. Looks like I'll need to upgrade!

Had a quick look this morning.  Very nice intro.   And, as above, I really need to invest in bigger, better, more h/ware to show the intro to its full spec at 1920x1600.  It chugged a bit on my olde worlde dual-core machine :)

Yeah it is nothing to do with processor speed it is GPU Horsepower it needs . . . ;) and preferably a NVidia chipset too! ;)

Ah right .. so my cheap and cheerful 1Gb ATI graphics card isn't up to the job.  N'er mind :)

Just watched the vid. Excellent. Music reminded me of the intro to "The Computer Programme" circa 1982- BBC.

It wasn't until I was talking to an ex-work colleague of mine at the last replay that he said "did you like my intro" :-)

I can see now why a job coding insurance software just wasn't for him :)
