    The way...

    I'm speading some time this week in the employee training room here at ESRI and noticed an interesting sign over the door, it says "There is No Right Way To Do a Wrong Thing".

    A very true statement in my opinon.

    Sring Time

    For the first time in awhile, we had a rain free weekend here in Redlands and it felt good to get out and get some sunshine. I’m hoping that we have a nice long spring…

    On a different subject, my home PC started humming over the weekend. Everything seems to be working fine but the fan, drive or something has gotten really loud. Any suggest on what to look out for?

    Remember ArcSketch from the User Conference plenary session last year?

    Well it’s now publicly available as a free download.

    ArcSketch is a great example of how ArcGIS Desktop can be extended and customized. As far as I know, ArcSketch was developed using the same public .Net API available to everyone with ArcGIS 9.1
