I looked at their website and they are the same concept as Flavia and have a office program.  I will have to contact both and see which gives the better price/product.  Thanks for your help.  I will let you know what we decide in the end.
2  General Discussion / Help...Specifically / Labels stuck to a cabinet on: February 11, 2010, 08:08:05 am
Does anyone know a good solvent or solution to get a label (like an Avery label) cleaned off a cabinet.   I feel silly asking, but it looks horrible.   Over the years, people slapped on labels and it looks dirty and icky.  I have tried alcohol, and various other cleaners, and they make it blacker and stickier.  Let me know if you know the super secret recipe to getting gunk off cabinets.

On time when I had a performance review, I took my to do list for the past 6 months and categorized and listed every little project.  It was a very long list and my boss looked at me strange at first but then realized he didn't really know what I did each day, except for what he gave me.  It was a real eye opener.

My boss has asked me to look into getting a new coffee system for our office.  I have looked at a few but this Flavia has my attention.  Does anyone use that at work, and if so how is it?  Price isn't "too" big a deal as I estimate the cost of coffee after an initial purchase to be .75 cents (or less if I purchase larger quantities, which we would).  Keeping our employees happy and a few less 15-20 minute  breaks to Starbucks would be good, but the quality has to be there.  Does anyone have any experience with a Falvia system (personal or home, what I am really after is quality and taste).

I use a mixture but the one that really helps is still my paper list I make daily.  Writing it down just helps, I keep it to the side of me so it is always there, always reminding me what i have to do.  I use Outlook tasks for bigger to dos and taskes, but for the most part I use a paper list.

I think the underlying point is more this person doesn't feel respected which is not a good situation.  We all have our duties but I am thinking she doesn't valued.   Everyone here cleans the fridge,  I do keep up the toners and yes un jam the copier when requested.  But I know my boss values my opinion and thinks of me as part of her team not "just" someone who helps keep the office running smoothly.  I know it is our "sales" staff who keeps the company afloat, I too have been told, if it weren't for them we wouldn't be here but at least I know I am valued in my own role.

Does anyone actually use V-cards?  If so, do you think they are useful?

I may, IF the right time and situation came up where it is comfortable to.  If not, I would just see how things play out.

I agree that they can wait a bit longer in between up dates.  BUT looking at the videos there are parts I really like.  Outlook and Powerpoint are the two program I use the most and both have enticing upgrades.   I am not sure when they plan to release 2010, but would talk to my boss about upgrading.   I wonder how well it works with previous versions of Microsoft Office.   I hope they take downward compatability into consideration.  That would be the biggest obstacle in upgrading.
