2. Keeping track of envelopes in Gnucash: 00:21

Categories: None -- Permalink
I sorted out my checking/savings account today, using Gnucash to keep track of what is where. I've set up the transaction to pay my rent from now until July 2007 and have earmarked the cash for it.

PCFinancial won't let me have more than one savings account, but I'm faking divisions with Gnucash, a personal finance program. Under Accounts:PCFinancial Savings, I have "Earmarked" and "True savings". Because I can set up automatic bill payments only from my checking account, I scheduled automatic transfers between my savings account to my checking account. This is tracked under Assets:PCFinancial checking:Earmarked and :Actual.

I need to talk to Mark at some point to figure out how my funding is structured so that I know what kind of budget I have and whether I can afford to cook for people more often. =) I _hope_ the increased funding from You-Know-Who translates into a raise in my fellowship, as it's quite a bit more than my previous funding.

Nice to have everything sorted out. =)

猫が窓を引っかいているのが聞こえる。 I can hear a cat scratching at the window.

3. Murphy's Law: 10:53

Categories: None -- Permalink
Naturally, I found my old ID a few minutes after I got it replaced. Pfft. Turned out that it had an identity crisis and thought it was a bookmark. On the plus side, that meant no one used my ID for strange and nefarious purposes such as checking out library books.

Random Japanese sentence:

猫はネズミを追いかけた。 The cat ran after the rat.
