Thanks. As someone with a generic degree in software engineering, I could work for any company that makes software. Tntuit - work on TurboTax. Exciting! Actually, I am very happy to work for a software company where our customers make things like cars, buildings, and movies/games.

I too was among the 1,325 worldwide fans of this technology. Though small in number, everyone seemed to really like Project Miller. I just wished there had been more of us. Make sure no one is below you when you take the plunge. :-)

Typepad HTML Email I agree that Carl was a one of a kind leader. As project increase in size and complexity, the cloud offers the advantage of being able to apply the CPU power from more than one machine. Thankfully, sales are not down.

Typepad HTML Email Thank you for the words of encouragement. I will talk about Forge and other interesting things – just probably not as often. Blog posts are not a big chore. I tend to spend 15 minutes or less on each one. They are much like sending an email.
