If nothing else, you may want to upgrade to AutoCAD 2008 just to be able to type in the longest command name in the 25-year-old software's history:
At 26 letters, it's as long as the alphabet! Oh, and its an undocumented command, as well. It's purpose is to get to you agree to allow Autodesk to anonymously collect information about your computer and use of its software.
As a subscription and licensee of Autodesk's you have already agreed to allow Autodesk to conduct an audit of your premises and computers by electronic means...
Then YOU type in "customerinvolvementprogram" and agree to let AUTODESK open a link back to home their base???
Why not give Autodesk your office keys, security code information.
Come on guys look at the potential for this to go wrong; not necessarily their (Autodesk's) intention, but if the gate is closed and not locked YOU cannot blame anybody else if 'somebody' chooses to open it and walk through..... Caveat Emptor
