You may (or maybe not) have noticed, in AutoCAD (and AutoCAD-based programs) a feature to dynamically change the UCS simply by clicking on it and picking a second point from which to align a UCS axis. Modifying the current UCS by this method removed a bit of typing needed for the time-tested methods found in the UCS command. As it has been, to change the rotation of the UCS (say we want to rotate about the Z-axis) the steps would look a bit like this: Execute the UCS command; Type Z for the z-axis option; Enter the value for the desired rotation. And press ENTER. Bear in mind, this is now not a mind-blowing change, but if you hover over the UCS icon, you will find that it highlights, signifying the ability to select it. When you do click on it, grips show, allowing you to activate one (make it hot) and choose a rotation angle.

Rethinking How We Measure IT Infrastructure Value

Article | February 28, 2020

Planning needs a rethink. Else, IT leaders risk hobbling their companies’ growth potential or becoming blindsided by risks. For many, justifying an IT decision to the CFO or the Board begins with a business case. Often, they use the total cost of ownership (TCO) to convince. Using return on investment (ROI) goes a step further than IT costs and savings, and looks at user efficiency and business effectiveness. Both measures fall short on correctly highlighting the true impact to the business of an enabling technology or infrastructure. Either the metric is too narrow, the timeline is too short, or the investment is not mature enough. It warrants a more holistic approach that looks at multiple aspects of risks, costs and benefits, and compares different components of ROI.

Fiber Optic vs Copper Cables: How Do They Compare?

Article | March 9, 2020

Fiber Optic and Copper are pretty much the only options when it comes to networking communications cables. Today we focus on what makes them different. Let’s begin with the key characteristics of the old reliable copper phone lines — the same basic infrastructure that we’ve been using since the beginning of the 20th-century. Copper is highly conductive. This is what makes it so great for carrying the power to your home. Copper wires use the movement of electrons to carry signals by modulating a waveform at one end then demodulating it at the other end. And converting the patterns in the waveform into an analog or digital signal.
