Or get it in a list:
If you want to (try) to convert it back to its original, convert it to 8 bit (256 colors) and offset by half of its width.
Also I now have several reasons on why Jim Blinn took so long. I removed the older ones that didn't make sense:
- 1. Trying to search for his old computers (which takes him a long time to get it back) and recovering the data/files from it.
2. He books a flight every week to visit his workstation and collect the texture data, and then book a flight again to go back to his home. He stated that when he was working at JPL he booked a flight from Utah to California and then back to Utah. Due to the pandemic it takes longer for him to visit his workstation. (This one is the most reasonable one of all.)
Added after 7 hours 34 minutes:
I don't want to send him too much emails about the textures even if it takes a month for him to respond.
Added after 19 hours 38 minutes:
...aand Jim Blinn's site is down. Hope it's temporary.
Anyway he takes a minimum of 9 days to respond.
