Petit Upmann, Anyone?

The day before he signed the embargo against Cuba, JFK had his Press Secretary, Pierre Salinger, round up 1000 Cuban Petit Upmann cigars. When Salinger returned to the Oval with over 1200 smokes, JFK reached into his desk and signed the document banning Cuban products, including the recently acquired cigars from retail sales. Nothing like a little insider information. Like the stuff you get at

According to a mail from our friends at ADN, today marks the end of the written embargo on Cannon, officially known as AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008. You’ll see a flurry of posts over the next few days from all the usual sources. But as usual, we’ve been working with that insider knowledge to pull together some of the great highlights for you dear readers, and today should be a banner day. Teasers for you:

  • Mark’s thoughts on the new Plan Production features.
  • Jason’s take on the new Point mechanism and functionality
  • My spin on the new functionality that finally takes Google Earth beyond a circus stunt.

So stay tuned, it’s going to be a fun day week!

Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead.
