We've just shipped our first foreign language version of AutoCAD P&ID - Japanese. First customer ship was on 15 December, 2009. It's pretty cool to see this application in a different script. I was going to do my Autodesk University breakfast subscription demo in the Japanese versions, but then it was 7 AM and I figured there was no reason to make it more challenging that it needed to be. I imagine our Japanese clients are thinking the same thing now that they no longer have to parse the English version.
A number of Autodesk offices observe a "week of rest" between Christmas and New Years. This year, by adding 3 days of vacation, it becomes 2 weeks of rest. I am looking forward to two weeks off before what is shaping up to be a intense 2009. It will nice to have some quiet down time, with nothing to do but rest. Well, nothing except for a 5 day trip across country to Delaware. And New Years Eve festivities. And that Monday nightclub that I've been wanting to check out. And a few other things here and there. Good thing we have that leap second this year so I can get in that extra bit of time to rest!
Since I'm not artistic enough to draw my own Christmas wishes, I'm recycling one from Dorkboycomics (with Damian's permission of course). Happy Holidays!
