You really need the manual to do anthing with it but now there is
atutorail and I will include it with Blender.

While the UI of Blender is sometimes a bit weird there is no other
program playing in the same league unless you go to Houdini (20
thousand dollars per seat)

The problem is not creating a new logo but building a modified RedHat
logos RPM with symlinks pointing to Indy logos instead of RedHat
(using the RedHat logo would cause problems) and building an IUndy
Logos RPM containing "La Liberte" at differnt sizes.  Is so boring
only thinking in it I fall asleep.

Then there is the indexhtml file

I fear PGCC has all the bugs of the GCC it is based upon and then some
of its own.  However I never tried it given I use a K6-2 (benchamrks
prove PGCC provides zero benefits on AMD CPU's)
