Does anyone still use hand tools?

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
With all the hype about cordless screw guns, nail guns, cordless drills, cordless circular saws and the such, what happened to the good ol hand tools? have they gone by the wayside? Does ANYONE still use a regular screwdriver any more? What about a drill that you have to plug in? And maybe one that uses a think called a chuck key?
Hand tools are back!

I use more hand tools than power tools. I have TONS of screwdrivers, saws, planes, chisels, hammers for all occasions.
Power tools like screw guns, nail guns, power saws, sanders, etc all have their place in the shop too, but for certain projects power tools won't do the job correctly or as nice.
You need a good balance between the power tools and the good 'ol hand tools!!
