NON-XML: IrishSpace On Web

Normally I wouldn't break protocol by posting this to XML-DEV, 
but since it is a unique piece for the Internet, some of the 
elders of the Web are here, and since making the next generation 
of 3D languages for the Web is an XML project, I think some 
of the members might enjoy seeing the most ambitious of the 
online work done with VRML.  When this was done two years 
ago, it was impossible to put it on the Web at all.  But 
it was built with the idea that things change fast on the 
Internet and what was impossible two years ago, is just 
doable today.  Consider that this is fully audio enabled, 
animated in 3D, and runs over an hour.  It is only a hint 
of what can be done.

To those that dream, to those that build, my sincere 
thanks.  This is what we did with what you gave us.

Hey, folks -

I've begun reshaping IrishSpace to be viewed on the Internet! I'd been
experimenting with streaming audio (Java only: no plugins or special

You can view it (if you've got a fast machine *AND* a pretty fast
Internet connection - faster than 28.8 definitely!) at:
(The intro page tells you what the technical requirements are.)

For now, you can go right through from the beginning to the flybys of
Venus and Mercury.

I don't think I can get much more than that up on my ISP without paying
for more disk space. Is there a good fast server we can put it all on
over in Tralee? (I guess the whole thing will be somewhere between 10
and 15 meg.)
