I have blogged before about the awesome personal budgeting software You Need A Budget!, a/k/a YNAB. It is now in version 4 and better than ever, with cloud syncing among all your devices (computer, smartphone, iPad or tablet, etc.). We use it for all of our budgeting, and we absolutely love it. Anyway, if you […]

As many of you already know, today was my last day as an associate at Baker Botts. I had many great opportunities there over the last three and one-half years and will miss my many wonderful friends, colleagues, and mentors. On June 18, I will be joining the litigation section of Baker Hostetler, here in […]
Always, always double-check that anyone who has worked on your car gave you back the key for your wheel locks. Apparently, the last folks to work on Sarah’s car did not give us the key for her wheel locks, which we discovered today when I tried to get a screw removed from one tire and […]
I just realized that my most recent post (GTD: Your 6 Most Important Things) was my six hundredth post on here. This site has come a long way since I started working on it in vi and Netscape on a Unix workstation. It has been edited in — and arguably abused by — vi, Netscape […]

For some of you, that means you can water your lawns again. For others, it means you can keep doing what you were doing, but legally…
Follow me at @EdInHouston. Not everything on here will necessarily be on there, and vice versa.
After posting to this blog only 5 times in all of 2011, I have decided that it is well past time to revive this blog. I regularly come across material that I would like to share on here, but inertia and the press of other concerns tend to take over. No more. In 2012, I […]
Never assume that a logical connection exists between some instance of what is and some ideal of what could be. Some things cannot be redeemed, but are best destroyed or simply left alone. Indeed, many of history’s saddest chapters began with efforts to turn a present but dying evil into a lively engine for good.
Thanks to a post by Tim Challies, Sarah and I decided to download and try a trial of a software product called You Need a Budget, or YNAB. We are now in love with this product. The premise of YNAB is simple: (1) everyone needs to budget, and (2) no other software products out there […]
