Sept 10 Meeting - SketchUp & NoScript

Jasper demonstrated his extensive knowledge of Google's free version of Sketchup, and taught a novice user how to make a 3-D, textured and shaded object - in this case, a chair. Google Earth contains an option to turn on 3D objects created by SketchUp artists, making exploration of cities populated with Sketch-up architecture much more exciting and explanatory. The SketchUp Warehouse contains many pre-drawn drag'n'drop objects, saving a lot of time when, say, filling up a room with furniture. Mike followed with NoScript, a Firefox add-on for blocking JScript activity on web sites, except where permitted by the user.
