Some awesome person wrote a program to parse my paycheck stubs and insert them into gnucash.

High five past me!

Weird.

Apparently living in a racially diverse cities is safer (less likely to die to violence, fatal accident or drug abuse) for white people than living in rural white majority towns.

Note the research was on California, but that's because only CA collected the data.

Stay safe people on the east coast.

This hurricane and the following flood and rain looks quite destructive.

The GTK3 version of gnucash finally showed up in Debian.
