    When your account is established, default pricing is entered into your pricing files.

A color printer makes the output even better!

    We have carefully formatted the output to make certain that the entire contents of an estimate print neatly onto a single sheet of paper. To use the print feature, you must use the print button that is built into each calculator tool and not the print button from your web browser.

    Does eYarder.com use Cookies to track users?

However, you may need to configure your browser to accept third party cookies in order for eYarder.com to login you in and keep you logged in while you use the web site. It sounds a little odd, but even though we do not write cookies to your hard drive, you still need to have cookies enabled within your web browser in order for you to use eYarder.com.

    The reason for this is that the HTTP protocol that you use to browse the web is stateless and we must create a temporary Session variable (like a cookie) to remain connected to your computer while you work on our web site. Each request for a page is completely independant of earlier requests, so if you want subsequent pages to "remember" the user name that you entered when you logged in, we have to store that information on your computer temporarily.
