Often, I have trouble adding and subtracting time, especially hours and days, because I think about it too much. ("Does today count? Does it not count? Maybe it does count.") So, I was thrilled this morning when Mike Monahan pointed out this Deadline and Filing Date Calculator from Atkinson-Baker. What a great tool for advocates and self-represented litigants! - K
Accountants, you are dedicated to seeing that we legal aid and pro bono program staff get paid on time. But often, all you get from us are missing receipts, late expense reports, and improperly filled-in paperwork. In fact, even when it comes to technology, we forget to cover tools that you can use to make your job easier. But today, technola is making an effort to change that.
Bankrate.com, a great source for financial calculators, also has a tool to help you find out how stable your bank is: Safe & Sound. Not only does it give you a star-based rating for the bank, it also links to financial reports and the bank's memorandum. This way, you'll be able to see if your bank has any problems and maybe get a better night's sleep.
Unfortunately, those other problems that I mentioned above--well, technola hasn't found the technology to make them go away. Promise to keep paying us anyway? - K
