Re: No Coffee

It's not really a health/benefit issue with me. It's just more of an addiction issue. I just ask myself "why is this something you can't seem to quit"? So I've decided to go for a while without. I will tell you one thing though... the first cup of coffee after not drinking any for a couple...

Re: Personal Finance Software?

I find it useful to use spreadsheets, write notes in Notepad, etc. Sometimes there is little benefit of being squared into some third-party software that only partly serves your needs. I've been slowly creating some spreadsheets that seem to be working. I just leave myself some room to add a few li...

No Coffee

It's been almost 4 months since my last cup of coffee. I didn't stop for any particular reason other than I thought that after about 40 years of drinking several cups every day it was about time to take a break. I have to tell you though, about every 2 weeks I'll have a day where I just want a cup o...

Before I start designing several spreadsheets I wanted to find out if there are any free or standalone (pay) personal finance apps (for PC)? I don't want anything cloud based.

The ThermalTake should work. Any of the equivalent wattage Corsair models would be a good choice and if you're going to hang onto it I believe Corsair is a solid product.

Got it installed and running. It gave me a couple of problems but I think it was because it wasn't seated correctly. Once I played with it the yellow bios light went out and we're good to go. Bios and windows both recognize the new memory. Hurray!

One thing I've noticed is that many of the items are sold out. Even a Samsung SSD I was looking at (2tb for $119) wasn't even available at Samsung. But I think you're right. The deals are all what we're seeing now. I think they're only going to go up from here.
