Me too John!  Back in the early 80s when fractals were just showing up I
thought they were beyond cool.  Then about summer of 85 Scientific American
ran a great article on how to generate them, and I fooled with it on my
little desktop Mac with its 8MHz 68000 processor.  Hard to believe thats
been nearly a quarter century ago.  The images are burned into my retinas to
this day.

These 3D images look so biological!  {8-]
