I dunno, I think it would be hilarious--teach the bloody Germans that their strategy of pricing their tools as luxury items is a loser and that some cheap purveyor of consumer crap can buy them out out of petty cash.

Don't think they can unless Festool (TTL Gmbh) wants to be bought irregardless of how deep their pockets are. AFAICT, they're totally privately held and put out no financial information whatsoever publicly.

Regardless of what many think, irregardless isn't a word.

It's application was turned down by committee. It can try again next year, though.

Don't have much time to hang around here anymore. Glad to see you are still around. How are things?
Take care,
David.

Not still around, but back around after a 4ish year break.

I still never seem to get into the shop, but I'm working with wood again in my handyman business, and still collecting 'user' tools.
I'm still fighting the war against stain, poly, and pukey ducks. You done any kitchen routing recently? I've shared your story with the Wreck.Metalheads.

Dittoes, Davy.

No kitchen routing, but I did mix cookie batter with my Makita 12v. It turns out when making cookies, you are supposed to let the butter sit on the counter for 30 minutes and not try to mix it with sugar when it is not soft. I broke one wooden spoon and burned out my wifes crappy beater. Makita was up for the task though and the cookies were very good.
I am married now, have a wonderful wife, I have been to Europe, have a nice house, new truck (300 hp 5.3l dual cab ZQ8 GMC Canyon), decent job, every tool known to man, life is good.

That's far too logical to have been any fun. Oh, poo!

Would you please send your absolutely gorgeous Columbian ex-girlfriend down to me? Pretty please? Thanks, you're a sport.

Really? And just what word _would_ you use to describe doing something 'without irregard'?

It actually is a word and is currently found in many dictionaries. As we all know, if a word is used often enough it becomes a regular word accepted by most. Consider all the words attached to the computer age. They weren't around 40 years ago when many of us were alive, yet they're accepted without question now. It doesn't make sense to say that irregardless isn't a word, not anymore anyway.
Consider the explanation in the Merriam-Webster dictionary: "usage Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.
