NeatReceipts for Mac (NeatWorks) Review

February 24, 2009

Neat Receipts for MacI’m terrible about handling paper – bills, receipts, invoices, you name it. I don’t do it well, and I seldom do it willingly. As a result, I’m usually desperately unorganized.

Last year, in an attempt to throw some technology at the problem, I picked up a Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M. It’s a nifty auto-feed double sided scanner with a decent package of included applications. It helped tremendously, scanning in papers, OCRing them, and converting them to searchable .pdf files. It worked, but the task was still just sheer drudgery.

Dagon Strange Musical

A 98 second musical version of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Shadow Over Innsmouth. Quite well done, even.
