As an FYI btw I've not uploaded any new FOSDEM session videos to @bts this weekend, but they should start appearing again from tomorrow (Monday) evening 🙂

I've also fiddled around before with MoneyDance and Home Accountz, so can confirm that those other options are worth a look. 👍

Here's a great article from Gadgette on Millenials being "the burnout generation" and some useful finance apps that can help:

The added amusement factor is that this is going to be sent all the way across the Atlantic Ocean, and their initial suggestion was asking me to send it back & refunding the return postage. 🤦‍♂️

I'm genuinely intrigued to find out what their other customer who's getting "Railroad Tycoon" now ordered... 🤔

(And yes, they are refunding me)
