Tried the autologin (I'm Windows 8.1, but reckoned it should be the same). However, after a restart I then couldn't login! It wouldn't auto login, nor would it take the password! Luckily I had a Microsoft LiveId account and could login with that account. Beware of this tip - make sure, for instance, you have a password reset disk, just in case.

Everything old is new again. Long, long ago, maybe in the 60's, IBM did a study on what tools to give developers to increase productivity.  After a long, exhaustive study, it was found that the best things to do to increase productivity was give the programmer a door and remove the phone. The door so the programmer could close it and there would be fewer interruptions.  And get rid of the phone for the same reason. The IBM study called the "locomotive" effect "a state of flow".  And more time was wasted if they had to get into and out of that state of flow a lot. So basically they said it didn't make any difference what tools you give people if you keep interrupting them. That is also why, once you get started in the morning, when you look up at the clock, it is lunch time already. (if you don't get interrupted),

Apparently if the first and last letters are correct, the rest don't matter.

Thank you for that. The Windows 7 search capabilities or rather lack of them are driving me around the bend - (one of the several unbroken things in XP that Microsoft managed to fix with 7). I have just downloaded this utility and will report back.

A dedicated hotmail or gmail account for product response and registration will take care of a great deal of spam. What remains will probably come from contacts' mailing lists being hacked. For this your mailing client offers rules which allow you to block senders and send unwelcome mail directly to junk mail, from where they can be deleted en mass without opening or preview.

When pushing the apologize button be careful that it is the correct one.  There are several other buttons in this area that can place additional layers of complexity to the situation if accidentally used.

I've never looked at label printers as a separate item -- we've used the Avery mini-labels for years, and once you have the paper size set up, it's really simple to feed through for 1-4 mailing labels with whatever formatting you want. However, Office Depot recently stopped carrying them, so maybe we'll get forced into special label printers if Avery discontinues the product (!).

Great Label Printers
Nice looking mailing and shipping labels make a statement about you - and/or your business. But printing to sheets of laser or inkjet labels can be a real pain when all you want are one or two labels at a time. This brief article talks about one line of label printers that's particularly convenient, inexpensive, plays nice on a network, and is super-easy to program.
