I took a little walk at lunch on Friday. Here’s a few pictures of the old port in Montreal, on a rather dull (but mild -4 C) winter day.

The Tugboat Daniel McAllister
The building where I work was built in 1835. It’s in the old industrial district down near the port, which is now known as the “multimedia district.” The main Autodesk office in Montreal is a few blocks over at 10 Duke.

One year ago I was at Iguazu Falls in Argentina. A bit touristy, but still something to see.
It was 30+ degrees. Currently it is -17 Celcius here in Montreal (not that that is all that cold) ;-)
I walked by this sign on the way to work Friday morning. I didn’t see the other side.
Closer to work is the old Darling Foundry building, which houses an art center (that’s a metal sculpture on the roof).
Autodesk has the best coffee machines of anywhere I’ve worked.
I believe this machine is the original Discreet Logic expresso machine.
The cafeteria. The support team sits in the adjacent section, behind the glass doors.
I had lunch at the Cluny artbar in the Darling Foundry.
My Macbook Air. Got it for Christmas from my wife. I couldn’t have been more surprised :-) and I love it.
The top-right picture shows the Macbook Air sitting on my work laptop.
