It's been a long time since I've touched my chkdims AutoLISP program. Some much needed updates to it are now made.

Mostly scaling of the indicators to account for the DIMSCALE variable. For the command calls I added the underscore and the period so it will use the native commands if they had been redefined or if a non-English user. I also noticed that if an associative dimension had a prefix it was not handled properly.

My favorite +Antoniette Costa song. Some serious talent on display here.
 
Music video for a song I wrote called "Void of a Legend." I collaborated with the incredibly talented cellist-beatboxer Kevin "K.O." Olusola.

If I was an Iowan groundhog and Hillary loses this year's Iowa caucus on Feb 1st. I would guarantee at least another 16 weeks of winter because I'm staying in my hole on Feb 2nd. and I ain't coming out for nothing.

I endorse this product. :-)
 
Need to print a list of recently worked on drawings, along with the time you spent working on them? Can it get any easier than just a couple of mouse clicks?

In days of old
when knights were bold
and toilets weren't invented
they'd drop their load
by the side of the road
and walk away contented.


Now we're told
and soon will be sold
by an Aussie who's demented
if you cannot hold
this you unfold
and leave the place scented.
 
Aussie invention so you always feel at home :)

BwaaHaHaHa. Madigan spokesman Steve Brown says the "workload was not there"

Illinois hasn't had a budget in place for about 6 months due to the king of Bozos Madigan. Only in Illinois.
The Illinois House won't be meeting in Springfield next week as planned.

Introduction
I began my career as a draftsman in 1972 after 4 years of drafting classes throughout high school. Several years later I became a machine designer when I worked for Daley Design, a well respected local company doing contract design work and eventually a special machine builder. After a number of years with Daley Design I moved on to a few local companies including Yates American Machine, Barber Colman Automated Mfg. Systems Division, Clinton Electronics, and Atwood Industries. In 1991 I started my own company Engineered Design Solutions after conceiving an idea for a new drinking straw and designing a special machine to produce the straw. I ultimately received an order to build the machine which allowed me to strike out on my own.
 
Here's a few quotes (of my own making) I hope you like and share:

We all walk along the escarpment. Some closer than others.

Oxymoronically, virtual reality is literally a real thing.
 
I, for one, am glad that the wheel has been re-invented. Multiple times.
 
Innovation: Seeing a sealed box then creating its contents.
 
Conquer space travel and time travel will take care of itself.
 
The key to time travel is live minute to minute and don't sweat the minutiae.
 
If it weren't for industrial art, art museums would still be caves.

Confusius say: He who overfills Zippo lighter make rash decision.
 
When mandated, innovation isn't.
 
I try to stay away from highfalutin words, but invariably fail.
 
Bragging rights
