A mix of yarn projects, drawings, and geeky notes, put together by Brian Wisti. This site gives you a rough idea what I am doing now and what interested me over the last several years. You can always follow me online if that is your thing.

    I rushed through that post about logging money with org mode, and didn’t take much time to edit it. This bothers me. Today I went into writegood-mode to catch my sloppiest writing mistakes.

    Logging Money In Org Mode

    I am setting up Emacs org mode to track how I use my money. This is a healthy habit, which I applied in the past with a little paper notebook. This needs to be as easy as that little notebook, or I will never use it.

    I only want to see how I use my money. This can eventually become part of a budget, but all I want today is the ability to make quick money notes.

    • My friend paid me back some money they borrowed
    • One of the housemates chipped in for groceries
    • I treated myself to coffee.

    Stuff like that. Let’s see what I come up with.
