Thanks to all entrants in the AutoCAD WS contest. I have now closed the entries and added a poll (see right). Although I did state that there would be no prize for this contest, I have some exciting news! I am happy to announce that thanks to an exclusive* arrangement with Autodesk, the winner of this contest will receive a free** copy of AutoCAD!*** I will keep the poll open until I feel like closing it or the entry I like best is winning, whichever is the most convenient.
While I like the pole you created, I’d bet anything I know what WS really stands for. Here is Project Butterfly’s description:
Project Butterfly is an Autodesk service that lets you edit and collaborate on design data over the Web.
So it’s a Service run over the Web. And in many circles that would mean WS stands for a common application abbreviation. WS = Web Service
That makes sense, but it’s not nearly as much fun as the others. How about We’ve Stopped, for when the server goes down?
