How long does it take you to do a direct mailing to thank your members 
and donors?  Or to create a set of address labels to send those letters 
out?  Can you make an attendance sheet in a flash, or a call list?

Your time is precious, !  Don't waste it on doing the stuff that 
technology is actually good at.
