Dialog Box: Readers Have Their Say8 Sep, 2006 By: Cadalyst Staff
Hot off the press for September, Cadalyst readers and Web site visitors pick our brains and tell us what's on their minds
For more than a year now, Cadalyst's Dialog Box -- the popular collection of letters from our readers that once appeared in each issue of the magazine -- has found its home on Cadalyst.com. Easy for some to find and easily overlooked by others, we thought we'd bring each new installment to the attention of Cadalyst Daily readers for you to enjoy "hot off the press."
(By the way, if you like being among the first to know about the latest content posted each month on Cadalyst.com (print edition and online exclusives), subscribe to What's New at Cadalyst.com, AEC or manufacturing edition.)
In this month's Dialog Box, you'll find much more than 2 cents' worth of opinion and advice on the following topics:
- Readers respond (vehemently) to a recent quote about "dinosaur" CAD users over 45 years of age.
- Some CAD software today behaves like foolish teenagers.
- More AutoCAD Map 2007 miseries.
- A few questions (and some advice) about LISP.
- And more.
