You are probably aware that today is a special day - the autumnal equinox. Around 11 p.m. it will be officially fall. In related news, we are also in the middle of Oktoberfest (which you might have known).
You may not realize that Thursday is a full moon - which makes it a Full Harvest Moon. So, if you have clear sky, you will get a bit of extra moon shine to finish up your harvest. And that's never a bad thing.
What you are likely not aware of is that Friday is a special day, too, here in America. Friday marks a new annual event – Steel Day.
Many Americans will celebrate this holiday in the usual way. They will buy stuff to help stimulate economic growth. If you are still looking, Amazon has some great gift ideas like this Steel Knife Sharpener and this Stainless Steel Necklace.
Thousands of others will be celebrating Steel Day
by participating in networking and educational events organized by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).
Kubotek is celebrating Steel Day 2010 by announcing that several of the Structural Shapes functions in KeyCreator, which generate beams as solids or profiles, will be enhanced in the upcoming release to include tables of AISC standard sizes. This means no more hunting for ‘k’ values to enter into the parameter fields when you need to create a standard sized I or T beam, channel, or angle.
This enhancement fulfills a long time request by many users and is certainly worthy of some celebrating so, "Prost!" Translation: this makes a great excuse to raise a glass of beer with friends.
