What do 1, 2007, and 1,000,000 Have in Common

Nothing really, but each number will show up here in this catch-up post.

The 1st SWUGN Summit event of the year was held this week in Orlando, and we all had a great time.  Thanks to Casey Gorman, Matt Rece, Dana Parrish, Carl Scheible, Tim Paris, and Eric Bright for their terrific sessions, and thanks to everyone who showed up for the event.  I heard some great comments, but my favorite was from someone who said "Wow, this is worth way more than 40 bucks."  And that was just after lunch!

My computer hosed up on me last week, and I had to re-image it using files provided by our help desk.  Little did I know that the image included Office 2007 instead of the previous version I had been using.  My only previous experience with the new version was an occasional print job at Kinko's – and I can't say that it was positive (where's the print icon??).  Well, after a few days of using it steadily, I have to say I absolutely love it!!  The interface is certainly different, and I still have to hunt for something now and then, but I never want to go back.

It was announced today that the 1,000,000 SolidWorks license had been shipped.  The SolidWorks Blog has all of the details, and links to some cool stuff for the celebration.
