Uni-Verse is a website that might be
a big thing. "Our goal is to create an open source Internet platform for
multi-user, interactive, distributed, high-quality 3D graphics and audio for
home, public and personal use. The platform will support high-quality
3D-graphics as well as high-quality 3D-audio and acoustic simulation. The
foundation of the platform is "Verse", a lightweight, low latency,
general-purpose network protocol for 3D data, which lets multiple applications
act together as one large system by sharing data over the network."

Updated Autodesk DWG TrueView. No admin rights to execute the application
now. It works for restricted users as well. So hopefully the problems
I blogged about are gone now. Here's
instructions if you have the older version.

Through the Interface by Kean Walmsley, Autodesk is a relatively new blog with great posts like Getting started with AutoCAD and .NET and Calling ObjectARX functions from a .NET application.
DbView for AutoCAD 2007 available to download on Shaan's Between the Lines blog. It's a useful tool to look into the DWG database.
KB article on Tilting wheel mouse button does not pan to the left or right in AutoCAD 2007. The tilt feature does not really pan to the left or right. Instead, it scrolls. You should make sure that the Display scroll bars in drawing window option is selected in the Options settings on the Display tab. Once this option is selected, tilting the wheel to the left or right should work as expected.
