*** Update on CBA Economic Survey
"Best laid plans" — we thought we were ready to launch the questionnaire for the update of the Economic Survey. However, due to technical problems with the online questionnaire and the approaching holidays, we have decided to hold off until after the first of the year. Consequently, the survey will now be the "2008 Economic Survey" and will be based on 2007 data. Please look for your questionnaire shortly after tax time! If you have any questions, contact Reba Nance at firstname.lastname@example.org.

*** Tip of the Week: Showcalc, a Free Add-On Calculator Complete with a Tape!
The problem with the built-in Windows calculator is that there is no tape, like there is with a standard desk adding machine. No tape means that if there's a problem, you can't go back to see where you made your mistake. Showcalc is a Windows calculator with a scrolling tape that makes it easy to look back at previous calculations to check your work. The scrolling tape display can be customized to your needs. You also can print a copy of the tape. Showcalc is customizable; you can change the tape's font, size and format. You also can hide the tape to give the calculator a slimmer profile. The most recent freeware version of Showcalc can be found at www.321download.com/LastFreeware/page7.html. Now you won't need to take an adding machine with you wherever you go! If you have any questions, contact Reba Nance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
