Folding a Triangle

Ed Pegg Jr., August 16, 2004

ust a few minutes (794K). I don't include the Hugi Coding Digest. Looking through here, and comparing it to all the textures I'm seeing in these programs, it's clear to me that I need to learn more. I've never even done a plasma effect (hangs head in shame). I haven't even discussed the next level -- 10 Megs.
