It's late, I have to go to bed

But before I do I must tell you about Microsoft Accounting Pro. Call me crazy but I'm so excited to have discovered it. I have used Sage and Quickbooks and despise them both for their obfuscation and lack of beauty. But MS's Accounting software is just about perfect. My god, I even did a few journals in it today without screwing them up. I set up four currencies, just like that, and amended a template so it looks just as I wanted it - easily, in MS Word! It has an excellent help file. I can import all my contacts from Outlook, should I want to. And I think I've barely scratched the surface. I heartily recommend that you check it out. There's a free trial should you want a tinker. Five stars, two thumbs up, fine holiday fun.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
