There is a Notebook at... http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/TechNotes/158/ that has the Notebook called Pictures.nb that has the code and images of the past large Quintic poster from mathematica...the notebook warns that it takes a long time, but it has been running for more thna 3 days....(I am using the old 5.2 version of mathematica for compatibility with that older Notebook). I am running a 933 Mhz Macintosh G4 OSX machine.....How long does it take to run this? I am tempted to give up and abort the run.....I already have the output that came with the Notebook, but i wanted my machine to actually make the images....
