AutoDesk University Registration Opens!

Woo Hoo!!! The time has arrived for Autodesk subscription members and AUGI members alike... we can now register to attend Autodesk University.


What's that you say, you've never attended AU !?!?! If you use Autodesk software, then there is one conference you should make a point in attending - this is it!!!


As part of my invovlement with AUGI Board of Directors, I had the privaledge last year to attend AU for the first time, and it truly is a mind-blowing experience. It’s the place to keep your skills up to date, learn about future trends, and discover new ways to experience productivity on a whole new level.


This years' event is held from November 27 - 30, 2007 at the Venetian Resort Hotel in beautiful Las Vegas, you won't want to miss this wonderful all inclusive event - that's right, it's exceptional value because everything is all inclusive - hotel accomodation and if you get to stay at the Venetian, the rooms are just amazing, food, drinks, entertainment, etc. The classes are plentiful and I am able to share my knowledge with my colleagues back home. And not mention, my good friend Jennifer Leamy, will be teaching there this year and you certainly don't want to miss her class for those of you still using Autocad!


See you at Autodesk University!

One Year Later

Sadly, a couple of friends passed away 12 months, come August 1st, one a long time friend and collegue, Andrew; the other an online friend, who I never got the chance to meet personally, Brother Sid…


One Year Later

We don't think of dearest friends as gone.
They are on an unending journey that has barely begun.
Life holds so many differsent facets,
the time on earth is only one.
We think of them as resting from problems and fears,
In a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days or years.
Think how they must be wishing, that we could know today,
that nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
We think of them as living,
in the hearts of all those they touched…
for nothing loved is ever lost
— and we love them so much.
