I loaded Java first. AOI would not open and the message said the download was broken in some way. The AOI site said that Source Forge occasionally had trouble downloading so I tried several times including from a mirror site. There are a dozen or so other sites but after about five tries I gave up.

So far I've had minor success with Sketchup and gotten a little further with the Autodesk Inventor Fusion app. Autodesk also has a sculpt app that's worth a try.

Couldn't figure out where to begin on Free!ship since I need to download an installer to bring home. No broadband at home so I've got to do it here but I run into foreign language problems when I try. I can't even figure out what language, but Dutch or a Scandenavian language are best guesses.

Oh we'll, it's fun anyway.
