DesignCAD on Facebook
« on: February 10, 2013, 10:26:00 PM »
Hi all,

I've taken the liberty of putting DesignCAD and ContourCAM on Facebook as a sort of showcase, and I hope you'll have a look and give a Like, make a comment or maybe even load up examples of your own work.

Click the appropriate logo(s) below:






Thankyou very much!
It's a kind of magic!

Apparently, you intentionally wrote 'sweet'.

Honestly, that just gives the impression that you don't understand English.

For those of us with a "suite" tooth . . . . DesignCAD and a 3d printer for making spearmint candy canes.   :)

Looks like it's just you and me, Magic...

So far, anyway.

Great insight -- most businesses do have a facebook interface these days.

On the title, I think I would go with something like:

  "Sweet CAD/CAM Magic Suite"

That way you convey both the pun and the fact that you know its a pun. Adjectives just don't look right after their object of description in English. Your brain wants to fill in a word after "Sweet".

Alternatively:

  "CAD/CAM Magic Suite. Sweet."

This uses "Sweet" in the street sense.

On facebook, it should be "an all around".

Good job!
Mark

Hi Mark,

Sweet can be a noun as well, as in a boiled sweet. Or "Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey" sung by The Drifters and The Searches in the sixties.



This picture is the reason for the name.

Archaic usage. Musicians get away with it because no one knows what the words are. Like I have no idea what that lady in the meat dress is saying ...

I would say to put a comma in there & maybe an exclamation point.

"Magic CAD/CAM, Sweet!"

This is the discussion I was waiting on for years... ever since that person mis-spelled 'suit' as 'suite' then that other person mis-pronounced the word 'suite' as 'sweet' and everyone else was too polite to correct either of them.

I vote that we pronounce the word suite' as 'suit' and not 'sweet'. My reason: a collection of similar items would be bundled together in a 'suit'.

... or was it that batchelors would be heard exiting hotel suites muttering the word 'sweet'... hmmmmmm

What with words and sayings created randomly and instanquickously, is it possible to misspell or mispronounce anything today?

Hi all,

Richard, thank you for your Triton hull.

Mark, Archaic usage? Not according to Oxford Dictionaries (American version):

noun

 1 chiefly British a small shaped piece of confectionery made with sugar: a bag of sweets

 2 (sweets) sweet foods, collectively: Americans eat too many sweets
        • British a sweet dish forming a course of a meal; a dessert: she served up a lovely sweet made with whipped chestnuts and almond paste

 3 used as an affectionate form of address to a person one is very fond of: hello, my sweet

Lar, bachelors! And the sweets of the hotel shook their heads and muttered 'suits'

and finally prl: No, you can cre8 your own!

I fear this topic has gone awry (or agley, according to P.G. Wodehouse). I had hoped to attract some attention and contributions to the Facebook pages.
It's a kind of magic!

Hi Paul,

I haven't figured this Facebook thing out completely.

You can post text, pictures and apps, so why not?

If not, at least you can put a link to it or, if you don't have a place to put it, I'd be happy to post it in the DesignCAD downloads section of my sites: http://www.magiccadcam.com/usa/DesignCAD_downloads.php
