yeah It's about a minute a frame (well because it's three layers then it's about 30secs a pass) which isnt awful..... it's just mind numbingly boring...

adding numbers to replace letters is a script kiddy thing and is KOOL in some circles(weirdos). Altering the spelling somehow changes the meaning without changing the meaning...like if I tell you to F#%^ off, you won't get your nose bent out of shape, but if I tell you to Fu... errr, you know the rest (smiles at Kev) :p
