LEDGER

October 19, 2021

LEDGER
https://www.ledger.cli.org/

Ledger is a command-line accounting tool designed for technical users who have a love of plain-text formats. Creator John Wiegley describes Ledger’s approach as “the Bran Muffin of accounting tools.” Rather than providing a user interface and integrated set of tools to manage accounting data, Ledger is designed to be used as one in a set of small, composable tools in the spirit of the UNIX philosophy. It defines a simple, text-based format for transactions and then allows users to create and manage account files in that format using the tools of their choice. From this data, users can generate a variety of reports using the “ledger” command. Reports can be generated for a subset of the data selected based on date range, payee, account transaction amount, and other attributes of the transaction. Ledger also supports budgeting and forecasting features, automated repeating transactions, and accounts in multiple currencies. The ledger manual (available by clicking “Docs” in the menu at the top of the page) provides an introductory tutorial and a detailed reference guide. Users can click “Download” for installers for Windows, macOS, Linux, and BSD systems.

GNUCash
http://www.GNUCash.org/

GnuCash is a full-featured double-entry accounting application. While initially designed to provide personal accounting features similar to the popular Quicken program, it has since grown to support accounting for small businesses and nonprofit entities. For personal accounting, the software includes features for budgeting, forecasting, automated scheduled transactions, bank and credit account statement reconciliation, and check printing, among others. For business or non-profit accounting, the software includes features for invoicing, accounts payable and receivable, and sales tax tables. New users can take advantage of “The Tutorial and Concepts Guide” (found by clicking “Documentation” in the Support menu on the left-hand side of the page linked above), which provides a friendly introduction to the concepts of double-entry accounting and how to apply them with the software. On that same page, the “Help Manual” gives an overview of the software’s user interface and operations. For Windows and macOS users, installers are available in the Download section of the page linked above. For Linux and BSD systems users, GnuCash is located in their package repositories.

LLRX – 2021 Guide to Internet Privacy Resources and Tools
https://www.llrx.com/2021/09/2021-guide-to-internet-privacy-resources-and-tools/

Technology has significantly changed our concept of online privacy as well as our ability to secure it. The are a wide spectrum of tools, services, and strategies available to assist you in the effort to maintain a sliding scale of privacy in an increasingly porous, insecure online environment. Whether you are browsing the internet, using email or SMS, encrypting data on PCs or mobile phones, trying to choose the best VPN, or working to secure your online services from cybercrime, hacking or surveillance, Marcus Zillman has identified a wide range of sources for you to consider. The foundational issue regarding privacy is that you must be proactive, diligent and persistent in evaluating and using multiple applications for email, search, file transfer, and social media. There is no “one size fits all” solution, and your vigilance and willingness to remain flexible in applying effective solutions will be an ongoing process.
