That's right, he moved to London before it all went pear shaped didn't
he? Oh ok..... I feel much better now *:)

With any luck. Money is a bit tight at the moment (not a great deal of
work on), but fingers crossed, yeah I should be able to make it.

Onto the strange request. I didn't want to ask this on thelist because
although it's related to web design, it's more of a personal,
experimental thing (and my tip jar is very empty right now).

I trying to get hold of some large (about 1000px on a side) graphics of
geometric shapes. In particular a stellated dodecahedron and a stellated
icosahedron (the spiky ones). I've found a few on the web but they're not
really suitable for what I want to use them for. Not big enough unfortunately.

If any kind soul out there has access to Mathematica, or something
similar and wouldn't mind me giving me a little bit of help, I would be
eternally in your debt and would shower you with beer, gifts, praise and

I'm in the process of redoing (it's getting a bit long in
the tooth) and I think I've hit upon a neat design, but it kinda relies
on being able to get hold of some images of these spiky shapes.
