Heyo! I've been working in the Civil/Transportation field since 1993, using MicroStation from the beginning. I fell in love with the software and have turned a part-time college job into a full-time career. At this point in time, I am working primarily with V8i. I've started reading the info about Connect, but I will not be implementing it in production any time soon. My primary interest (besides ongoing production work) has been Administration - getting in up to my elbows tweaking and twisting until the software does what I want. Programming, configuration, interface. So many ways to place what we need right where we need it. Standards are a wonderful concept. Standards that people might actually USE are even better.
