Microsoft Groove

In my quest to finaly start organizing my life, I finally got around to putting Office 2007 on my Laptop so I could play around with this program called Microsoft Groove. I knew it was designed to help groups collaborate; but I had no idea how much it could help me.

Through it's folder sharing feature, all of my documents, QuickBooks files, and Quicken files are now in sync between my laptop and desktop. The best part is that the sync happens anytime both machines are connected to the Internet. So, now when I'm out on the road I can put a number of invoices in QuickBooks, connect the machine to the Internet when I get back, and have those invoices available back on my Desktop.

Next task: start organizing paperwork in my apartment.
