AU 2010

Are you going?  This will be my first year attending Autodesk University.  I'm excited and a little anxious because I don't quite know what to expect.  This will be my first time to Las Vegas as well.  I did go there to visit relatives when I was about 4 years old, but that doesn't really count.  If any of you have been in the past and have any tips or suggestions for me, please leave a comment.  Or, if any of you would like to meet up in Vegas, that would be cool as well.  When I get back, I'll make sure to give a review of AU and discuss any good Revit tips I learned.  Viva Las Vegas!

Happy belated Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving.  This time of year can get a little hectic for a lot of people.  In the hustle and the bustle, people tend to forget what Thanksgiving is all about.  No, it's not about eating 3x your typical calorie intake or getting up at 4:00am on Black Friday to stand in line at Best Buy to get a deal in a flat screen TV.  Yet, that is what most of us do because it's the "norm".  I for one refuse to go shopping on Black Friday.  There is no sale worth getting up that early and fighting the crowds for.  However, I do find myself eating a little more than I should.  Let's not forget to give thanks for what we have.  With the current state of our economy, I am especially thankful that I have a job, and a good one at that.  I am also very thankful for my loving wife, my awesome son, and and the fact that we are all in good health.  I hope you also have many things to be thankful for.
