Do you use protection?

If you were at AU this year, you may have seen some of my take5 and AUGI friends wearing blue T-shirts with this tag line on the back. This year my CADLock compatriots (Dietmar Rudolph of Germany and Steve Johnson of Australia) were both at AU, so we decided to have a little fun with this protection theme. We brought some “protection” to go along with the shirts (no, those little matchbooks did not contain matches).

Now that you’re back home, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to learn how to protect your AutoCAD drawings. You can download CADVault for AutoCAD from the CADLock web site and run it in fully functional evaluation mode to see for yourself how CADVault can securely lock your AutoCAD drawing content.

The French expression tuit de suite pretty much sums up how I feel after every Autodesk University, and this year is no exception. So much gets crammed into one week, with barely any time to decompress or collect my thoughts, let alone catch up with all the latest gossip or relax with old friends.

I had a tradition back in the early days to describe the people I met at AU. That tradition fell by the wayside as the heady days of youthful exuberance gave way to the practical realities of putting food on the table and making sure the bills got paid. Nowadays, the list would be far too large anyway.

Just like the old days, however, I come back from AU energized and replenished, not with more knowledge per se, but with information, ideas, and revitalized motivation. This year I’ve resolved to jump on the blogger bandwagon and share some of my thoughts for posterity.

Welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy the ride!
