On home ownership

A friend posted a link to a posting on Forbes titled 11 Reasons Why I Never Want To Own A House Again. I found the points made quite ridiculous. I started writing a brief comment, but before long it turned into a point-by-point rebuttal. Before continuing, some disclaimers: I am not an expert and I am not offering professional financial advice. I’m only going to be considering the situation in the USA.

My Palm runneth over

Dammit, my Palm V is full. I don’t have enough RAM for Vindigo (Boston restaurant and movie database with street maps), PocketMoney (personal finance) and Life Balance (spiffy hierarchical to-do list and life goal balancing tool). Vindigo is obviously vital, especially now that Boston is filling up with tourists again and restaurant plans need frequent last-minute adjustment. PocketMoney is what I use to keep track of my various bank accounts at the moment, so that has to stay.
