I'm like a kid before x-mas! Well, almost.
This could be one of the most exciting stages in recent memory, what with all the crazy breaks taking place in the last week.
It will take a miracle for LA to don the maillot jeune tomorrow, although he will more than likely do very well in the stage.
I will be listening live with a cup of good coffee whilst attempting to study for an Autocad exam.
Enjoy!
AutoCAD Exam??? (Off-Topic)...biknben

I'm an AutoCAD Consultant. Training, customization, standardization, drafting...you name it. Good luck on your test. Let me know if you need any help.

Tip for the test: Know the "Right Hand Rule" it always comes up on tests.

BTW: I'll be "Alt-Tab"ing back and forth between AutoCAD and live tour updates tomorrow morning. GO LANCE!!!

I am taking an 8 week AutoCAD 1&2 course at tech school this summer, tough going when its nice out. Haven't heard of the "right hand rule" what is it?
Thanks.

I used to teach AutoCAD a few years back. Great software. The right hand rule will only make sense once you get into 3D.

Just substitute F, B and v for x, y, z and it will apply to AutoCAD. It tells you, from the location of the x and y axis, where the z axis is pointing at. Sometimes when you are drawing in 3d it can get confusing to know if you are looking at the bottom or at the top. The right hand rule helps you determine that.
Thanks for the info!Largo

Not at 3d yet, but will keep it in mind.
Back to the TDF.........
