I finished work on an enhanced version of David Levine's</a> mailparse script. I'll defer questions and screenshots to the wiki links on the right side of the screen, and the software link to the right where you can download my copy of the code.</p>

More of my code is making it's way into git also. Check back every now-and-then to the software page to stay current with it.</p>

On a totally different topic, I finished Common Sense on Mutual Funds; a fantastic book written by one of my financial idols John Bogle, founder of Vanguard. It was a difficult book to read at times due to the volume of math that is tossed around, but I can say I profoundly enjoyed it overall and it re-affirmed my outlook on personal finance and low-cost investing.</p>

I've started Atlas Shrugged. It's a huge book (1100+ pages) and I'm so stoked to read it and Fountainhead (also sitting on my bookshelf). Also, I crunched some numbers and decided it's not worth it in the long run to keep the mortgage; it's only saving me ~300 bucks a month when you figure in the tax write-off. It'll be ~900+ saving every month, after tax, when I've killed it. Baby steps though, the next year is focused on motorcycle and student loans.</p>
