lessons learned in production

Hey there! This article was written in 2007.

It might not have aged well for any number of reasons, so keep that in mind when reading (or clicking outgoing links!).

Bullet points

Posted 7 November 2007
  • Although I've often thought it would be good to use GnuCash to keep track of my finances, I've never taken the time to actually use the thing. That changes now. My bank offers transaction information in several downloadable formats that GnuCash supports, so I'll be able to quickly and easily keep track of most of my cash flow.
  • I uninstalled X-Moto completely because not only did I get Aaron addicted, but the latest version (now with over 100 all-new maps!) threatened to completely consume my time.
  • Speaking of Aaron, he helped me out with some photo organization that I've needed to get done. That appears to have been a catalyst, because I've been on a roll, having organized backwards through time to the beginning of 2004. The big stumbling block for 2004 has been the choir tour to Chicago, photos of which number in the several hundreds (to Frederick, Stephan, and David: expect phone calls from me soon).
