It’s been a month now since we dropped in on Sol and Sal, our intrepid power user and his sidekick. Let’s see what they’re up to, shall we?
“Say, Sol. ’Sup?” said Sal, succinctly.
Sol succumbed to Sal’s slang and smiled. “Do you mean to say, Sal, what am I doing this instant?”
“’Zactly!” Sal said excitedly.
“Well, Sal, I’ve been working very hard at modeling and specifying all the hardware and purchased parts for our latest design.” It was at that second that Sol observed his internet browser window was open on his screen, and speedily closed it. But the increasingly savvy Sal had spotted it, and silently savored his observation. “You saw that, didn’t you, Sal?”
“Busted!” Sal smugly sneered. “I saw what you were doing! You, you, you…” Sal stammered. “You were downloading files from 3D Content Central!”
Sol sympathetically sighed at his smoldering sidekick Sal. “Remember what I’ve told you, like, a hundred times now?”
“This isn’t about emptying the coffee pot at night, again, is it, Sol? Because…” Sal’s voice trailed off.
“No, Sal, I was thinking of ‘Work Smarter, Not Harder’- that favorite quote of mine. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed it, but 3D Content Central has been totally redesigned, since @SamHochberg was kind enough to show it to us a couple years ago.”
“I remember that article, I think,” Sal slowly reminisced, “I think it was about remembering stuff.”
“Yes,” Sol said, reopening his browser, “but just look at this. The site has such a cleaner design.”
“Yes, I see, but…”
“And a more powerful search engine!”
“Yes, Sol, I see, but…” Sal repeated.
“But what!?” Sol seethed.
“Well, I can see it, and you can see it, but what about our readers?”
“Oh, sorry.” Sol sighed sheepishly. “Yes, they’re going to have to look down at Figure 1.”
“That’s better, Sol. And you know, you were right. It is a great site where users can share 3D content, download from others, or upload their own product lines. Remind me again, Sol, where you learn all these great tips and resources?”
“Why, Graphics Systems’ SolidNotes blog, Sal. Graphics Systems’ SolidNotes.”
