Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Google SketchUp (free)

Wow! Easy-to-use drawing software to create 3D drawings you can walk around in and view as desired. Even the free version is pretty high powered. I'm an AutoCAD (Computer Aided Design & Drafting) technician and even I am impressed by the results and ease with which one can create drawings. You can draw your home (even your home town!), make changes/additons/deletions and see how it would look in real life. There are many similar programs on the market, but for a free offering this is a terrific value. Did I mention it is easy to use? Get it, try it, love it! --pseudolus
Google SketchUp (free) is an easy-to-learn 3D modeling program whose few simple tools enable you to create 3D models of houses, sheds, decks, home additions, woodworking projects – even space ships. You can add details, textures and glass to your models, design with dimensional accuracy, and place your finished models in Google Earth, share them with others by posting them to the 3D Warehouse, or print hard copies. Google SketchUp (free) is a great way to discover if 3D modeling is right for you.
