@esamecar Really just the Toolkit which is a browser extension. It’s amazing. Oh and the Launchbar and/or Raycast interfaces to record transactions.

Those shockwaves you just heard? Yes, that was me deleting my YNAB account. I’m now all-in on Actual Budget hosted on Pikapods.

@ridwan I’ve set up a self-hosted instance on PikaPods. Putting them up against each other.

With YNAB leaning into a new branding of Yet Another Price Increase or YAPI™, I’m trialing Actual Budget running on PikaPods. Early in my testing, but this could be good enough. Being in Australia I don’t get any of the fancy YNAB automation anyway.

@jimmitchell Yeah I can type “11.13” for instance and be there, then arrow in to the folder or go back. Instant send is also amazing for JD.

You’re asking a lot of an old brain of mine to remember two launcher triggers!

I’m genuinely excited by what Apple has put forward in its WWDC24 keynote. xos18’s, Sequoia and Apple Intelligence all look brilliant. I’ve never been so excited for math worksheets.

@Denny I used NextDNS for about 3 years and it worked well. I’ve since cheapes out and installed a Pi-hole. Even with the ad servers blocked and the setting to download content turned off, I still get the ads. Kind of a bummer.

🔗 ROSS GITTINS: The RBA has squeezed us like a lemon, but it’s still not happy

Problems such as higher world petrol prices and higher insurance premiums caused by increased extreme weather events.

I’d like to see Bullock put up a big sign in the Reserve’s office: “If it’s not coming from demand, interest rates won’t fix it.”

Ross Gittins succinctly notes the disconnect in the Australian economy and the frustration of interest rates as a singular mechanism.

Mortgage holders, such as myself, have cut back and the data shows it. The problem is elsewhere, and so the solution must be also.

And, let me reiterate that I understand this was irrational, driven wholly by anxiety. These were inside thoughts, and inside thoughts are better left alone

Keenan has the best lines. I often listen to my inside thoughts even when I shouldn’t.

I don’t do much in the way of ‘life advice’, but here’s one: get up early!

As in, 05:00 early.

Today I woke up just after 5am. I read this post yesterday. I’m not pleased with Johnny’s undesired influence. I’m not a morning guy.
