 Black & Decker DR550 7 Amp 1/2-   Inch VSR Drill/Driver 

Item purchased as a gift and the recipent was well pleased.
This drill gives you that extra power you often need but never have around the house.
Well balanced and handles well.
I have had several cordless drill drivers. Even with modest use (less than once a month) the charging has failed after a few years, and there is no recourse at that point. 

I ordered this because it is wall-powered. With a 20 foot high quality cord, I am able to use it anywhere on my property. 

I am able to use it where it fits; most places a cordless would fit. 

The only down side is that the finger speed control, while good, is not as fine as on a cordless. 

For now, I stay with this one.
Before owning this Black & Decker drill, I got a couple Craftsman cordless drills as a gift.  With some planning, the larger cordless drill was handy.  But ultimately the irony was that the cordless drill and its advantage of convienince was actually inconvienient since it was never charged when I wanted to use it immediately.  I began to realize that I had to have a corded drill.

I bought this drill at a local big-box home improvement store for at Amazon's price and brought it home.

Out of the box it includes the drill, a chuck, small instruction manual and the registration card.  This is certainly a no-frills drill, but its got it where it counts.

7 amps of power rocks.  Plus it has a great handle for the other hand when you really need to control the drill or want to apply more pressure.  The cord length will require an extension cord (like all drills), but the drill chassis seems like it is built rock solid.  This is my new favorite toy!  It comes with a two-year warranty, and given the price/name brand, I wouldn't recommend this unit for commercial use (go with DeWalt, Hilti, or something of that ilk).  But for occasional around-the-house use, it can't be beat.

You could spend more for a household drill, but you don't need to.
This works great as a driver and as a drill. The power is controlled by the pressure on the trigger. I use it with an extension cord to make up for the short cord. After having bought other drivers, this will probably be the final drill or electric driver I will ever buy.

Paste Special #2
Is there any way to paste more than one attribute at a time e.g. Column width, formats and formulas & number formats rather than having to doing a 'Paste Special' for each attribute? Good question! I think there is no natural way in Excel. However, there are "Excel add-ins" out there that expand Excel's capability and will offer you options such as "paste numbers and formats" etc. My suggestion is to record a macro (Tools > Macros > Record New Macro) whilst doing a paste operation of your choice. and then assign the macro to a custom button on you...

Upgrading from Dynamics 7.0 to GP 9.0
We've purchased GP 9.0 and want to upgrade from Dynamics 7.0 (staying with SQL Server 2000). I understand that I have to install 7.5 or 8.0 first. Three questions: 1. I have both 7.5 and 8.0 on CD, so do you recommend I use one over the other? 2. Given that I will install 9.0 immediately after, are there any steps in the 7.5 (or 8.0) installation process that I can skip? 3. I'll also upgrade FrX from 6.5 to 6.7. Can I do that after getting to GP 9.0? P.S. Our server is Win 2003; 3 clients are WinXP. We have just 2 companies in Dynamics. Thank you! Lscharf: 1. Person...

Black is no longer black -- Why?
In OL 2002. All of a sudden, when using HTML format for email, the color black is no longer a real black. It's lighter, more like a shade of gray, almost a purple hue. In fact, all of the colors seem to be a less saturated / vibrant and less sharp and crisp, but it's only in Outlook, and it's only in HTML format. When I'm in Plain Text format, the black is still very black, and the characters are sharp and crisp. Also, the colors in other software are just as perfect as they always were. Does anyone know why the sudden change of color saturation for Outlook? My system is...
