What part of Colorado you from Sinc?

From Pueblo, currently living in the Colorado Springs area, although I tend to think of Boulder as "home"...

Hey cool -- I used to live in Colorado (Eldorado Springs) a long time ago, like from 1964-67!

There is a variable in AutoCad called MoveBAK.


That's exactly what I was looking for!!! Thank you very much.  :D  :D

So how would I set the movebak variable to  "O:\\BACKUP\\(getvar "loginname")  <-- this doesn't seem to work and the login name folder is already there.

I guess I don't see why one would want to create a back-up of an Autosave SV$ file. Not all SV$ files are complete files. Some only have partial bit's of information. A long while ago, I believe Keith did some posts about creating reactor's. maybe you would need to look into something like that so when the Autosave is run, it runs through a reactor to create sequential Bak's. I don't have much trust with the Autosave as it has not done what it has suppose to in the past  :cry:

As far as pointing the movebak variable to an individual variable such as "username". Is the O:\ drive a network drive that everyone has access to? I would think it could work, but I am not up on code or setting variables so AutoCad could read it. You may have to add an environment variable in your operating system.

hmmm...  they must contain enough data to be renamed and opened as a complete drawing, otherwise what's the point of autosave, right?

Just had use for the *.SV$ file today (actually, I need it quite often here.....) and it had all the info from the save time.  I have never had a partial *.SV$......And they have saves my as....bacon more than once!

Hey M-dub, thanks for asking! Well, ummm ...

... me an about 6 neighbors pitched in together and have been putting up fencing around our respective properties (digging holes, like 90 of them, mixing concrete, raisin' posts, installing gates) ...

... finalizing our wedding plans, caterer, DJ, photographer (only one more month as a single man) ...

... sneakin' the odd moment to do a bit of photography (from last Friday morning, around 6 AM ish) ...


Color depth and size reduced in the interests of bandwidth. Saturation etc. pushed to the extreme to make more dramatic.

... and a suite of other activities keepin' me away from the swamp, but I'll be droppin' in occasionally like this to make sure all's well.

Cheers all,

Michael.

I didn't know the Amish used computers!  ;)  Sorry, just reminds me of an old fashined barn raisin'

That's a pretty nice picture!  Have you ever checked out www.webshots.com?  They've got some really wicked pics like yours and you can upload your own to share as well...
I've got some on there.  http://community.webshots.com/user/fpeef

They're old pics, and I have a new camera now, but some of these ones are half decent...

Good to hear someone else is taking "the plunge" as well as Hudster!

Take Care
