||
||
||First, the answer to the original question. The difference between my post
||and the one on the "micropilots" is that I did not call someone "stupid".
|
|No, you implied a derogetory.
|
|Believe me, my friend, I never try to imply anything. If I have something
|to say, I'll say it.
||
||While I agree that Mr. Richmond's template has a lot of good features both
||on the use of MathCAD as well as an educational viewpoint of flow charting
||the process of steel beam design, I seriously doubt one could make any
||money designing a building using this tool. I could not. That was the
|point
||of my comment. This is a long way from calling someone "stupid".
|
|I don't believe that Mr. Richmonds contribution came with attached
|stipulations as to suggest any useage of the template.
|
|I dunno, but when his post came as:
|
|"Try my AISC 9th Edition beam programs on the Mathsoft web site at
|http://www.mathsoft.com/appsindex.html and look for Dale Richmond. These
|are the ONLY simple beam programs that will PICK the most economical beam
|or let the user TRY ANY beam he desires."
|
|It appeared to me as if Mr. Richmond was asking the listserv to "Try his
|program". I looked at it and responded with my opinion.
