Illustrator folks: I've got a .dwg file I'm trying to open in AI CC 2014, but everytime I try to open it, the app crashes. Any ideas to try?

I had used Dreamweaver CSS5.1 desktop version before, they use lots of memory, maybe you can add more RAM and see if this happens. If it's an online version CC 2014, then Chrome also uses lots of memory, you can try a different browser like Opera and open it. You can also post questions in Adobe Community here, maybe they can fix this problem right away: https://forums.adobe.com/community/illustrator

Some of you have been asking "What's next, Karyn?" I have some news that I can share now! During the 2015 Summer season (May-Sept) I will be a guide at Tutka Bay Lodge in Alaska. The slideshow below highlights some of my previous visits at TBL. I look forward to sharing this amazing wilderness with the Tutka Bay Lodge guests!

So fun to find new surprises buried in photos! Take a look at what these whelks are doing! I totally missed it the first time through editing a larger photograph http://www.stay-curious.com/another-look/

I have a ticket to see him in Denver Jan. 29th...
He reminds me of my 6th grade teacher, who had the class hanging on his every word. Everyone in his class got straight A's - even the screw ups like me.

This man is a champion of science communication.
