Autocad Array - Preview Tip

Ever in the array command and you set everything up and then you go to preview and can't see the whole array? Well, don't press Cancel!

To solve that problem click modify and reselect your objects. Before right clicking, zoom out far enough to see the entire array.

Then press preview. Problem no more need to cancel and start over.

It is getting better all the time...Free Wifi

It is like the "pebble in calm water" analogy. Free Wifi is spurting up in many airports, coffee shops and book stores. But it isn't for beatnik coffee lovin travelers any more.

Over a year ago, Portland's Willamette Week did an article on a group involved in what they call the Personal Telco Project. These group of people were going around the Portland downtown area setting up free wireless hot spots all over the place. How rebellious right? More like evolutionary.

Since I read that article in June of 2004, I have noticed a ton of other articles sprout up. Sports Bars, Stadiums, Homes...the list goes on and on.

Today I saw an article that Google offered San Francisco free wifi. As did many other companies.

I love seeing this and contribute all I can to these efforts and you should too.
