More about your crossover point, from Lifehacker.
from Lifehacker by Adam PashIn response to our post on the financial crossover point—the
point at which the proceeds from your investments exceeds your living
expenses—the Hackszine weblog has shared an investment
spreadsheet on Google Docs and Spreadsheets that helps you calculate
your crossover point (which they’re also referring to as FU money for
reasons I’ll assume you can figure out). Just plug in your income,
investment percentage, spending, and with a few other variables to get
a nice graph of your crossover point potential. You can easily change
variables to check out different saving scenarios, making this a great
tool for projecting investment schemes that can help motivate you to
actually save the money.

Top hurricane forecaster calls Al Gore a gross alarmist – USATODAY.com Annotated
- I cannot believe how outspoken and negative this guy is being about Gore and his message. Gore’s message may not be perfect, but so what? It’s calling attention to a problem we’ve been ignoring for 20 years. And if Gore is completely wrong about the cause and calamity of climate change, so what? Even if the world as we know it IS NOT about to end, at least we’re making the world a better and healthier place for our children. That’s enough for me to care about using less gasoline and getting rid of my incandescent lightbulbs.

NEW ORLEANS — A top hurricane forecaster called Al Gore “a gross alarmist” for making an Oscar-winning documentary about global warming.
“He’s one of these guys that preaches the end of the world type of things. I think he’s doing a great disservice and he doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” William Gray said in an interview Friday with The Associated Press at the National Hurricane Conference in New Orleans, where he delivered the closing speech.
Nate Grondin – A Blog for Teachers » Blog Archive » Schools should use Openoffice.org Annotated
- I have to say that I agree here. We just had six schools close locally due to lack of funding. The amount of money that schools would save if they switched to open source software would be significant, I’m sure. Can we really expect our world to get any better if we can’t afford to educate our children?

School districts should switch to OpenOffice.org
instead of paying all that money for MS Office. I use OpenOffice.org Writer as my main word processor, and it does everything I need it to do. School districts must pay somewhere between $50 and $100 for MS Office for each and every computer in the school. Every time the school replaces those computers (usually every 2-4 years), there will probably be a “new” version of MS Office that has tons of “new” features that no one will use, but the school district will still pay for. This adds up to a lot of money.

Wall Street is at an all-time top; apparently investors are as fearless, or as clueless… as consumers. That no one seems to register any fear is remarkable – given the catastrophic consequences of any misstep. Never before has there been so much debt…and never before have so many complicated, contradictory debt-backed investments been stretch
