    Governments contracting projects

    I think the old saying "he who can walk out on a deal, controls it" pretty much sums this up the company can walk but the city would be left with a (more) broken transport system the city is in less of a position to have the project fail

    3ds Max & 3ds Max Design Guides!

    I just checked out the autodesk website to answer your query about 3dsmax vs 3dsmax design they're apparently 2 different bits of software, huh, who knew. Since autodesk bought max, it's changed a bit. as for a book to recommend for autocad, I cant help you there much I'm afraid, I used autocad back at version 14, when it was a bit different. I guess it depends why you want the book. Do you need something like a reference manual, or more like a 'how to use autocad in 21 days' thing. personally I've never really had a lot of success with books for software, I generally learn it faster just by tinkering. If I need to learn some specific task, I just look it up on the internet or the help file. Autodesk also has quite an extensive amount of learning material available, both at their site, and in the included help files
  4. good question actually. do you know how often they plan to update mr bustnuts?

    We need better and better maternity leave!

    Got it in one. yep, its a battle of selfishness, from all points someone has to foot the bill for making more people be it, employers, progenitors or governors. My personal take on it is, if you cannot support your own choices, dont fuck(ing make them) which makes for a self sustaining philosophy, if you do not have the resources to bring another human into the world, then chances are, the system (world) you are adding them to, is less likely to be able to support them. how about, stop trying to expand an inefficient system to sustain it, and re engineer the system to be more self supporting. does it not seem like this to other people? that if you have to constantly funnel more and more resources into something to float it, it's probably a little broken? I dunno, it seems that, if our society was a business, it would be shut down for being not productive enough. maybe I'm just getting cynical

    Firefox 4 is out!

    yeah, except that it actually works This an an "oh". O This is an "oh", snapping. ( ) unfortunately, with this release however, it started to act more like Opera too. :( crashes whenever I do something that requires large HttpReq's (thats AJAX to you plebs :P) like facebook, sometimes atomic, lifehacker, pretty much everything else.

    3ds Max & 3ds Max Design Guides!

    you want to use 3dsmax for design work? not a great decision if you ask me 3dsmax is (well was originally) focused more for film and tv needs. Precision is not one of it's finer points, (having used max all the way from version 3 up to 9, you can trust me there) the workflow in max is not anywhere near what you want for architecture or engineering design. stick with the products designed for what you're doing ie, autocad. autocad can provide anything you want from max anyway. actually, why do you want to use 3dsmax?
  10. link is a little [no longer]broken hector. comic is pretty good though, will add it to the shortlist

    Feeling lonely?

    this is one of those things that always makes me think what led you to find a 'hugging machine' on the internet? plus I would think that a better design would be to have two giant inflatable bladders on either side of the device instead of a padded board. it would provide a greater area of contact, plus would look like you're being crushed in a giants scrotum, which is even more hilarious
  13. its a bit more like bible satire Like 'The Door' you mean or from haters? I was being facetious: http://www.lolcatbible.com/index.php?title=Main_Page oh my, now that is something special also, I haven't read The Door. Lamb isn't really a hate on the the bible, it's more a humorous sidestory, I think you would probably enjoy it actually D
  14. its a bit more like bible satire and if you want a lolcats bible, just get any 8th grader to write it out for you, the standard of english these days is poor enough.
