I use GNUCash for my personal finances because I don’t trust services that require me to give up my financial institution’s username and password.

I Love rsnapshot
I love rsnapshot. I like to think if I wrote a backup program, it would be a lot like
rsnapshot. This post is about how I chose to use rsnapshot for my local backups.
Sudoku from the Other Side
I do love Sudoku, and I play it too much. Not long ago (before this semester started kicking my butt) there were two things I wanted to play with: Local Storage and a Sudoku library.
Just Another Tetris Clone
Despite WildStar’s critical hit on my free time this past month, I’ve managed to code a little. Let me introduce both of my blog readers to the buggiest and most poorly coded version of Tetris they’ve ever seen.
