Okay, thanks to EVERYONE for sending in so many great suggestions for the new name for, well, you know, that software (I know, it’s still all over the site but I’m trying to avoid the name now from fear of angry German engineers coming down with the wrath of the lost ark upon me). It was a tough time narrowing it down to 10 finalists. They were all good (even though every one of them has the word SIM in it, something I wanted to avoid but it was impossible). So please vote for your favorite on the poll at the right and in a few days I’ll pick the most popular. Again, thanks to everyone with your suggestions! It really helped.

As for the progress of blueprint, things are moving along as usual. I’m in code maintenance mode right now and putting all the pieces together. I tend to get wrangy (is that a word?) with my development and instead of using my version control system and creating branch versions, I keep making little test versions with added functions or fixed things in it. Now I’m spending the next couple of days putting all the pieces back together again into a single project. I know, oddball programming style but it works for me. This will faciliate an internal test release that a few people will be getting to give the exporter the final go through. After that blueprint will be packaged up for it’s final “present”ation. Please don’t email me asking for a preview or test version because you won’t get it. I have a dedicated bunch of freaks that are up to the task and will be taking care of that for me. I’ll pass on reports and some more eye-candy for you to get a look at shortly.
