      Ahhh, I see. The grad program is over, but the thing about grad programs is it connects you pretty solidly in the city you were grad programming in. So now I work for one of the top arts venues in the country. Tough to walk away from that. But who knows what the future holds!

      I've tried using Blender, but couldn't get it to work well with AutoCAD. I take the 2D drafts of our engineers and generate a 3D prototype/model we can use to do basic renders for customers. With 3DS I can atleast get a nice model exported out from the 2D/3D conversion and animate from there. I played with it some and got some nice first impressions. Just a steep learning curve...I'm gonna download the trial on my home laptop and give it a go here too.

      Thanks! I didn't have my heart set on boy or girl, just healthy so I wasn't disappointed. I did have an inkling for a while that it was a boy before we found out. I guess that mommy intuition has some merit!

      Sorry man, already gave it to a friend. If you were interested in paying for their service, you can jump right in and buy your way into it (you'll get invites for doing so, I think). But if you were wanting the free service, you gotta get invited or wait.

      Yeah, I am pretty sure you're the one who reccomended it to me after my time in Barcelona. reading it certainly made me rethink my trip, and I would have looked at a lot of the sights differently than I did. loved Barcelona, and I am a big fan of George Orwell - a reformed anarchist and communist - he beleived in the ideology right up until he saw it in action - live and in person, and realized how unrealistic and corrupt it really was. Thats when he wrote "Animal Farm" - which was a satire on Stalinism, but I have had some of the uninformed try to tell me it was a rant against capitalism, meaning they clearly never even read the book. Orwell is the man who wrote one of my favorite quotes - "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf"

      Figured you might want to check this out.. I got an email from the NRA that the appeals were already in the process. Maybe one day your state will start to make sense.

      NRA Files Suit Against Unconstitutional Ban
      on Carrying Firearms for Self-Defense in Illinois

      Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association is funding and supporting a lawsuit that challenges the constitutionality of Illinois’ complete and total ban on carrying firearms for self-defense outside the home. The case, filed today in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, is Shepard v. Madigan. The lead plaintiff is church treasurer Mary Shepard; joining her is the Illinois State Rifle Association, the NRA’s state affiliate.

      Mary Shepard is an Illinois resident and a trained gun owner with no criminal record, who is licensed to carry a concealed handgun in two other states. Because Illinois remains the only state that completely prohibits all law-abiding citizens from carrying firearms for self-defense outside the home, Mary Shepard also became a crime victim. While working as the treasurer of her church, Mrs. Shepard and an 83-year-old co-worker were viciously attacked and beaten by a six-foot-three-inch, 245-pound man with a violent past and a criminal record. Mrs. Shepard and her co-worker were lucky to survive, as each of them suffered major injuries to the head, neck and upper body. Mrs. Shepard’s injuries required extensive surgery and physical therapy.

      “Mary Shepard isn't just a victim of the violent criminal who attacked her," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. "She is also a victim of anti self-defense activists in the Illinois legislature who have consistently refused to recognize that good people have the right to protect themselves when they go about their everyday business. We're pleased that the legislature has come closer this year than ever before to changing the law, but close isn't good enough for Mary Shepard and the thousands of other Illinois residents who are prohibited by statute from defending themselves outside the home."

      Because Illinois statutes prohibit the right to keep and bear arms and the ability to carry handguns in Illinois, they infringe on the right of the people, including Mrs. Shepard, members of the ISRA and other law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and are thus null and void.

      Cox concluded: "In its historic Heller and McDonald decisions, the U.S. Supreme Court made clear that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms. Mary Shepard's story highlights the need for law-abiding citizens to be able to fully exercise their Second Amendment rights. Whether through the legislature or through the courts, we won't rest until that happens."

      The NRA has also filed or supported the following cases to preserve Second Amendment freedoms across the United States since the historic Heller and McDonald rulings, and expects to file more in the coming months:

      Benson v. City of Chicago, challenging Chicago's unconstitutionally burdensome handgun restrictions;

      Heller v. District of Columbia (Heller II), challenging Washington, D.C.'s overly restrictive firearm registration requirements and ban on commonly owned rifles;

      Jackson v. City of San Francisco, challenging that city's gun storage and ammunition regulations;

      Jane Doe v. Wilmington Housing Authority, challenging prohibitions on firearms ownership in Delaware public housing;

      Jennings v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, challenging the federal law that prohibits law-abiding adults between the ages of 18-20 from buying handguns from licensed dealers;

      NRA v. McCraw, challenging Texas' law that bans issuance of handgun carry permits to 18-20 year old adults; and

      Peruta v. City of San Diego, challenging that city's refusal to issue handgun carry permits to law-abiding applicants.

      No doubt that part of the problem is that the site isn't designed for universal use, so experiences can vary between users. I'm going to assume you don't spend a lot of time on the forums and in any of the BAR's because it seems fairly well known among most people I interact with. Here's a recent journal discussion with comments by other users.

      Some things, like the type of browser I have available to me at work, are not things I can change. They also aren't a bug or faulty in any way; so paying for a system that doesn't accomodate them is not justifiable anymore.
      Besides no other site that I use for free requires me to adjust my software or hardware settings for them. Why would I pay for the inconvenience of a site that does?

      Site locks up and begins to hourglass most commonly.
      Yep... I couldn't make this reply to you without it doing that.

      Severity comes and goes.
