No postings because of illness - but I am not alone

This is to apologize for not updating this blog for a couple of weeks and leaving your valuable comments unmoderated (hidden). I was ill and now I am recovering. But it is a lot better now.

It seems that I am not alone in my illness - AutoCAD has a light headache as well. It errs in one of the basic operations any engineering software should perform - integer arithmetic.

Try yourself - open the QuickCalculator (Ctrl+8) in AutoCAD 2010 and throw him one of the most complicated mathematic problems that mankind should solve, the calculation of the difference: 120-62.

I know, I know, some smart brains among you would claim this makes 58. But think again. And look at the result AutoCAD invents: 57. You can even verify it with the 'CAL command - the same. And now who is right?

I wish AutoCAD 2010 (and myself) a speedy and full recovery...
