Ubuntu 12.04 First Look

In a virtual machine, I installed Ubuntu 12.04 this morning. The installation took 5 minutes and the result looks pretty good. I will install it physically on my test computer at home to see if all the good reviews about the Unity HUD are correct. So far, I think it might be a winner.

Firefox 12

Today, my Firefox 11 was upgraded to version 12. I held my breath waiting to see if the usual problem of having my RealPlayer Addon be deactivated. Well, it did not this time. Going from FF 9 to FF 10 was good, but I had the problem going to FF 11. I think the version of the Addon makes a difference. So if you have not upgraded to FF 12, please upgrade to RealPlayer 15.0.2 beforehand.

If you have been having problems as well, mention it to Real Networks when uninstalling RealPlayer (a comments form will appear at the end of the uninstallation).

It's Ubuntu Day!

A whole month after AutoCAD Day, today we celebrate Ubuntu Day with the release of Ubuntu 12.04. I recently had to fix several Windows computers that were going haywire. Download Ubuntu or any other LIVE version Linux, burn it to CD/DVD/USB and boot your Windows system from the disc to get access to your saved files and stuff. No malware. No viruses. No need to spend a dime. Great fun for all!

Un mois après le Jour d'AutoCAD, aujourd'hui nous célébrons le Jour d'Ubuntu avec le lancement de la version 12.04 d'Ubuntu. J'ai récemment reparé plusieurs postes Windows qui ne fonctionnaient plus. Téléchargez Ubuntu ou autre version LIVE de Linux, gravez le sur CD/DVD/USB et démarrez votre poste Windows sur le media pour accédez à vos fichiers. Plus de virus. Plus de logiciels malveillants. Pas de coûts. Amusant, n'est-ce pas!

VBA Modules for AutoCAD 2010+ / Module VBA pour AutoCAD 2010 et +

This week, I have to convert some AutoCAD VBA code to .NET. I needed to test something and noticed that my AutoCAD Map 3D 2010 does not have the VBA module installed. Never got around to doing before I guess... 

Anyway, here is the link to find your version of VBA for the 2010-2013 products.

Cette semaine, je dois convertir du code VBA d'AutoCAD vers du .NET. J'ai besoin de valider quelque chose et je me suis aperçu que mon Map 3D 2010 n'a pas le module VBA d'installé. J'imagine que je n'ai jamais eu besoin de le faire dans le passé...

De toute façon, voici le lien pour télécharger votre module VBA pour les produits 2010-2013.
