Cash Tracker is Now on the Web!

Have you ever wanted to feel confident with your finances? Have you ever wondered how making changes to your lifestyle would affect your livelihood over time? These were the things I wanted to know over two years ago. I didn’t care about all the fancy accounting terms associated with personal finances. I just wanted to know things like (for example) whether my family’s spending habits were acceptable or not or whether we could afford to go on a summer vacation or subscribe to a new magazine. Beta Launch

After a three days spent acquiring a new hosting space, migrating some websites from one place to another, and working out some kinks, Cash Tracker Online is finally available for public use. Just go to: and click the ‘Register Now’ button to get started.

Upcoming Launch:

The last 8 months have been pretty busy for me. I had the usual business of year-end (perks of running a tax-related product team) and then some. My energetic 2-year-old daughter is almost enough to keep me from posting at all, but I’m here now to announce (mostly to myself) that I’m back in the hunt. I have scheduled the last steps to launching and hope to do so in the next month (pending a hosting upgrade among other things). Sneak Peek

Enjoy! Weekly Development Update – 9/2/2010

I’ve spent a lot of time working on in the past few days, and the done list is starting to outnumber the to-do list. Newly-initiated members of the done list are: Updates

I’ve been making some progress on the web project over the past few days. I’ve only got the steam for an hour or two each day, but since the last update I’ve accomplished a few things: Weekly Development Summary

This will be the first of a series of weekly updates about the Cash Tracker Online project. Domain Purchased

I’ve decided to go ahead with the online version of Cash Tracker. I purchased and parked the domain on my personal hosting account today. You can view the “coming soon” splash page here. I’ve also decided to convert Cash Tracker to a web project before implementing any of the new features. I think the development will be much faster-paced because programming for the web is my strong suit. Also, the tool will be much more accessible on the web, and version control will be much easier to implement (no more converting .tfx files to a new version because of a schema change).
