    Google SketchUp

    I recently started playing with Google's SketchUp, and I think I'm addicted... I've never done any CAD, but this little program (40MB alltogether) is just plain old fun.
    There are a bunch of excellent quick tutorials online, and here are some of the more advanced examples this little thingy can do.

    I've been playing with it for ample hours, and here's the result (requires SketchUp to view - it's a model of our house, and I think it's pretty much correctly scaled...).

    Anyone else been playing with it/interested in doing so?

    Lol... I can't draw (at all!) either, but this thing is just fun! I watched the first tutorial (which lasts 5 minutes or so), and next thing I know I was doing some semi-professional-looking (read: it kinda looks like the real thing) models.

    Semi-Professional!!!! hahaha


    Awesome link, and for the size of the prog. awesome! I feel useful again.


    We should compare our work. Mine is less than semi-pro so far, but give me a few more hours with it.

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
