Eldest son has started a new high school class - Engineering. I'm excited for him because Engineering Science was one of the classes that I really enjoyed. Back in the day, we used slide rules, sketched on huge sheets of paper with hard pencils, used sin/cos/tan to calculate angles and load bearing values. Things were different back then but the basic principles were the same! Computers were something that I only ever saw on my weekly dose of Star Trek, Space 1999 or Blakes7.
Nowadays, the students will be learning how to use Autocad 2014 on their laptops. Tapping away and creating perfect technical drawings in the space of a few minutes.
*sigh* Kids nowadays - /insert rant about how hard it was working down the mines when I was a kid :)
But I digress...
So, Nate inherited my two year old IBM Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 13s. It's a solid laptop, touchscreen and perfect for him to carry to from school and to play with Autocad on. Or so we thought.
