I got a question about the origin of the picture. I was on vacation in Galveston, Texas. I spent the day on the beach, body surfing and making sand castles with nieces and nephews. That evening in the hotel, I went to take my Vitamin D tablet, and I thought to myself, "Boy is this dumb. Like I need this?" So I took a picture. When I got back to the office, we released the Solar Analysis for Revit update, and I started to write a blog article about it. I thought about how the tech preview helps designers make sure buildings don't get too much sun. I laughed as I had just gotten too much sun. Sometimes these blog articles just write themselves.

When I read the summary of the American Revolution from Wikipedia, nothing immediately came to mind as to what the founding fathers could have done. Then I asked myself each question and came up with at least one idea each time. Is it just me, or does this approach actually work?

I want an app that when I walk into a grocery store, I can fire it up, type in ketchup, and it tells me which aisle to go to. It could even show a floor plan with arrows or provide audio Google-like walking directions. I want that! Sent from my iPhone

Typepad HTML Email Thanks for the confirmation. Sorry for the hassle. The team is looking into it. About half of the users are having install issues. Y’all can get back to proving feedback after they fix it, and I post a new build.
