Just got back from a short trip and lo and behold, my mail had a cardboard box in it! My first copy of AutoCAD 2009 has arrived! Now I have some work to do, building network installations so my fellow coworkers can bask in the glory of the new user interface!
I know, a little cheesy, but to a long time user a new release is like getting a birthday present. I've got my prep work still to do - upgrading my menu to the new ribbon interface. Then there is the sorting through dozens of PC3 and CTB/STB files used on old projects and don't need to be carried to 09.
Okay, now it don't sound as fun anymore... ;)
