Software Plug

I see all this going around and around about TurboCad on this site. I get regular spams from Caligari.com, makers of True Space. The first CGs I ever saw were done by a friend in 1996 of a small wooden tool I had made, he did it on a laptop using TrueSpace ver.2, and it blew my mind. Back to the spam, I have long since abandoned True Space for a higher end program but they keep sending me these offers. For the money, and compared to what TurboCad offers, True Space is a great alternative. The latest offer is, buy 99.00 worth of training software and you get ver.5.5 of the program for free. Keep in mind its not a CAD program in the strict sense, but an excellent design tool and worth checking out at this price. Nothing in it for me but a little further down the road toward carpal tunnel syndrome.

Design cad is available for less than $99 and its a very powerful program, if you can figure out how to use it. I gave up trying - burned up two 15 day trial periods and convinced myself that Cad programs are too difficult for what I get out of them. I discovered Visio (which my company furnishes for free) does just fine for me.

Once a person starts down the path with any graphics program, why drop it and start learning another, I suppose. There ae probably 10 or 20 as good as True Space, and a new one coming out every week.

When you say "spam", you mean unsolicited commercial email? If so, why in the world would you reward that by giving them _money_? If it's something you asked to get, however, it is very unfair to them to call their mailings "spam". Please clarify.

It's advertising I don't particularly want to see, so I called it spam. Have I taken myself off their mailing list? No. Is it a good product? Yes. Don't lose any sleep over it:)

Did you opt in to get the mail, or did they send it unsolicited? For me, that's an absolute - I will not give money to a spammer, under any circumstace. Now that you've called it spam, can you please tell us if it was opt-in (not spam) or opt-out (spam)?

(sigh) I signed up for it, if I recall correctly, 5 or 6 years ago. Anyway, it's a cool program for the money which was the point of my original message. I don't believe it has the accuracy of a CAD program, but it does awesome design renderings. And now that you know it's not spam but just something I didn't define very well because after 5 years their promotionals get a little tiresome and I was using the term loosely, you can go out and buy it with a clear conscience. You don't even have to like it.

OK, not spam then. Thanks for clarifying; if I was a software vendor, I'd hate it if people characterized my newsletter, that they signed up for, as spam.

Glad you cleared that up. Publically stating that someone is a spammer when they aren't isn't somethign you'd really want to leave out there uncorrected, after all.
