I am not a programmer, but I can compile. I like open source, public domain license, like Debian GNU/Linux and mono. Ken Musgrave told me he lost this code. Is similar code available, or can someone write it? I extracted the following information from one magazine article.

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN January 1996. page 36, 37. Playing Slartibartfast with Fractals. Ken Musgrave. entire virtual planet. 1,000 lines of computer code. Fractal surfaces have infinite detail?the closer you look, the more you see. looks similar to an earth barren of life, not only from outer space but also up close. proceduralism, dictates that the programs should be as short and fast as possible. goal is to get an interactive renderer.
