Early this year, Computer Graphics World's Web site was overhauled as part of a companywide initiative by our parent publisher. The site, which is still a work in progress, offers some new features, including fully searchable back issues (to 1995); news feeds, and reinstated Gallery archives.

I am a frequent visitor to your Web site. For a while, there was a wonderful link called 'Products and Vendors' that contained a list of links to various companies that created graphics software and hardware.

This was a great way to discover new companies, get their addresses, and obtain brief descriptions of what the companies' products were. Is this link still around?

For the record, I am a software engineer specializing in NURBS curve and surface representation. I found my second job out of school on your site and I have found my latest prospect on your site as well.

We are currently working on an updated Products and Vendors listing for our Web site, and are planning to have it posted in the near future.

I don't accept cookies or spend time on a site that's only interested in collecting them.

An article about Emotion 3D: Web Edition from Anark Interactive Media in Boulder, Colorado, (pg. 8, January 2000) contained an incorrect phone number. The correct number is 303-545-2592.

Due to an editing error, a review of Gestel's SolidThinking 3.5 (pg. 59, January 2000) incorrectly stated that neither auto-des-sys' formZ nor Play's ElectricImage features NURBS modeling. Both programs have NURBS capabilities. The sentence should have stated that according to Gestel, the NURBS modeling functions in these packages aren't as powerful as those in SolidThinking.
