Are Beta Testers Superheroes?

Off For The Holidays

I just wanted to let everyone know that I personally will be taking a break until after January 1. I’m not expecting to post anything next week as I relax at home. January 2nd starts off right with another implementation to begin for me.

I want to take a minute to thank all my customers who have helped make this year a success for me. I got to meet a lot of visitors to this site last month in Las Vegas, and hope to meet even more in the coming year. This is truly an exciting time to be involved with a software package as incredible as Civil 3D. I anticipate just as much (if not more) excitement in the coming year for this industry.



I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year – and thanks to you all once again.

I’ll be looking for Nick as he wanders around with that “first day” blank stare on his face.

Check below for revisions as the day goes by…

A Geek Cry for Help

OK, this is not in any way Civil 3D related, not Autodesk related, not even CAD related. Since I know a LOT of our readers are true geeks at heart, I’m begging for help here.

Those of you who know me know that I live in the middle of nowhere. It’s nice to sit on 100 acres of pristine forest land and have a house that’s paid for, but living in the country has it’s downfalls. One of those things is the fact that I cannot get traditional broadband internet resources here. Cable internet comes within 1.5 miles of me on both sides, and DSL is out of the question. Heck, they don’t even have ISDN available. Read more

Areas of Contours for Stormwater Calculations (for now)

I am working out the kinks in my stage storage table (to be unveiled at AU this year during my SWM class), so for now here is a quick-n-simple way to get your contour areas out of your ponds. Read more
