I just found a place that sells Rhino 3.0 for $150 educational
discount price. This discount applies to faculty, students, staff and
also parents of students K-12 (that covers a lot of ground).
Also Flamingo for $150 Penguin was $90? they also had many other
software titles - some discounted some just well priced and no
special id needed. the site is http://www.journeyed.com
