    Re: Computer Usage at work

    Although I currently don't have a computer at work (it crashed), I did use a pretty good inventory program..

    It is made by A-2 Technologies and sold through Quality..They have both DOS and Windows versions available..The inventory and prices are all updateable.

    The version I have (Windows) also includes an electronic stop sheet for logging FPS, and a locker management program

    It also has an ares to log PM...

      I have a computer in my office.

      It is used to surf the net.
      No parts inventory - Who has time?
      Make flyers or banners.
      Locker lists &amp; such.

        I've got a slow computer in the shop. I use it for inventory, mainly. It's a database we manually entered into Microshaft Works. Other uses include Century lane machine programs, Computer Lane Monitor programs and e-mail checking when there's time.
        I like the scrolling marquee screen saver. We put the K in Kwality.
        I never, ever use it to check Bowl-tech. Honest.

          Trying to convince the owner that it would not be used for games or surfing (except bowltech), but not yet. Told him I would use all my own equipment and software. Still waiting.
          Do work at home for work...keeping a history of repairs and distributor jams; signs and forms; log sheets; wiring diagrams; etc. (I like to draw stuff)

              Well, the boss just got a ~new~ PC in the office, used for Quickbooks mainly, and games for her son when he's there. We did email through the old one, but they passworded this one, so I haven't used it yet. (I used the old one a ~lot~ to get on this site right here :p Now I just bring down my laptop whenever I'll need a confuzer... I load up MP3s on the laptop and use it for Rock n bowl and our Vegas Bowl. Much easier than carting 800 CDs around...
