General Update on the Blog and News

Well, we are now a couple of weeks into this blog experiment and it is going well.  As part of being more "bloggy" and less "newslettery" we are going to stick in little updates and news items like this.

First off, thanks to a few dedicated users who requested a better way to print out the articles. We found a chunk of code that we added in to the templates for the postings and you should now see a "Print" option down in the lower right corner (with Permalink and comments) of each posting.  this brings the posting up in a separate window that is more printer friendly.  Just print this from your browser and you have hard copy.

The next thing we are going to work on are comments.  We had it turned on for about two days when we went live and received some incredible offers to visit sights where we could: 1) increase our "size" in a few weeks, 2) obtain various drugs very cheaply, 3) meet a very nice girl that wants to show off her new webcam, and 4) help the widow of a former Nigerian minister of the interior get some money back from where the a bank is holding it.  So we turned off commenting. We are looking at a couple of open source tools that have spam filters for commenting and will hook up to one of those to get comments working.

In the area of news, we are very happy to report that our last seminar on Geometry Tools in ANSYS, Inc. Products had 145 people signed up and about 90 attendees.  We’ll post upcoming seminars in the right column of this blog, or you can subscribe to receive invites by using the same subscription service that controls your e-mail about this blog.  Click the arrow to the right to manage your subscriptions.
