Something “BIG” & “AutoCAD” will be announced on the 16th of August, 10 a.m. US Pacific Time.*
In the US that is 8.16 which fits rather nicely into DESIGN (or DE8.16N). Who thought of that!?
However in New Zealand it doesn’t quite work as it will already be 8.17, or in our notation 17.8, and happening at 5 a.m! I’m not sure if that means we find out later, earlier or at precisely the same time?
As Douglas Adams said: “Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.”. For this I’d add “5am is a mythical time that surely doesn’t actually exist”.
* I have no idea what “BIG” & “AutoCAD” will be announced but my Twitter speculation that the true meaning of LT, as in AutoCAD LT, will be revealed or it’s a radical new Menu/Toolbar User Interface have yet to be refuted…
