What makes this really interesting to me is the race to host your data. Microsoft has a 25GB option, Amazon has one for 5GB. They're seemingly everywhere. Do you use one? Will you use ADSK's?
UPDATE: Just because this is important to me, it doesn't seem to work on a Mac. which is odd for a web-based platform. Maybe v1.2.

Good news from FLAT TIRES HQ: "All The Right Enemies" has been accepted by Pandora's Music Genome Project. Here's a list of the straight-up rock and roll goodness (all available here on iTunes):
- Drink It Dry
- Rock & Roll Weekend
- All the Right Enemies
- Trailer Daze
- Pretty Lady
- She's Alright
- You're Gonna Like It
- See See Rider
- Rag On
- Carolina S**t Stomp
So to celebrate - here's a link to download the opening track "Drink It Dry" (NSFW).
And as an added bonus Eddy will be pleased to know (as I was going to the post office anyway) I've gone ahead and dropped off my share of the signed contracts for Mastering Revit 2013. Here we go!

Let's see if Netflix CEO Reed Hastings can make it out of the company before the screen door hits him.
- Strike One: Raise prices too fast too soon and without believable explanation. Lose 1 million customers.
- Strike Two: Walk away from negotiations with 1st run content provider Starz.
- Strike Three: Further confuse your customers by splitting your business into separate content delivery models.
Result? Piss off your customers long enough and you'll eventually piss off your share holders that don't like watching their investments fall by nearly 50% in 8 weeks.
I predict more hemorrhaging is on the way. Usually the only thing that'll slow the bleeding it is announce the person that keeps driving into the ditch has been told to let go of the wheel and get out of the car.

I installed Bootcamp this week to get better Revit performance on some rather large files. I also installed an application to allow access to my OSX partition from Windows 7.
And in the process corrupted my OSX partition.
Carbon Copy Cloner saved it all and 24 hour later I'm up and running. I could have restored from a 2 week old Time Machine backup - but wasn't willing to lose two weeks of effort.
If you have a Mac - Carbon Copy Cloner rocks. Grab it.
And go ahead and grab Tinker Tool while you're at it. Great for showing access to all the hidden files and such.
