Then the Engineering Hangout is the place to be. This is truly a cyber-caféfor all who are engineers. The site features freeware, shareware, and demo downloads, an engineering book club, engineering message boards, a page of newsgroups just for engineers, puzzles and games, and a link to lots of free stuff on the Internet. And if you have some used slide rules you want to get rid of, the site even features a basement for buying, selling, and trading. Engineers can sign up for an e-mail update or fill out an opinion form that changes on a regular basis. Oh yeah, the URL to be seen at is www.engineeringhangout.com .
