"As long as people are designing and creating systems made of interconnected equipment there will be a need to visualise and document these networks. Even if we get to a world where everything is connected over IP networks and physical cabling is more or less standardised, we still have to design the logical interconnections of devices.

A lot of folks know that Customer Service is a big deal to me, and I try to keep to myself when receiving bad service. However, when I experience a truly amazing customer service encounter, it deserves to be shared.
In my line of work, we use a common piece of CAD (computer aided drafting) software called, Vectorworks. As an added plug-in for this program, we use a system called connectCAD to create, manage, and streamline system schematics and project infrastructure designs. The base software is rather complex, but connectCAD really makes a lot of things easy. However, being the detail-oriented and complex designer that I am, somehow, I still managed to screw some things up in a recent drawing. I reached out to Conrad Preen (the primary developer and owner of connectCAD) to help me figure out what went wrong, and how to prevent the issue from happening again.
