The tax man “Rebooted” me

Hugh is hoping that I can come to the Reboot conference in Copenhagen in June. Well, a few problems. 1) I'm just tired of traveling. This last weekend was so nice cause I got to stay home with Maryam. Life has been too nuts lately and I'm turning down speaking opportunities now. 2) Last night we did our taxes and it wasn't fun. The tax man took my fun money. So, can't afford a trip to Europe this year, at least on my own dime.

So, I doubt I'll go this year, even if somehow we find the extra money. This bums me out, though, cause Reboot last year was a great conference. Lots of geeks doing cool things (that's where I saw Linux running on an iPod for the first time).

So, for this one, I'll be looking forward to the video feed.

  1. Taxtime is always painful Robert. Pity the blogs that talk about it are few and far between. Maybe you’d have found a person able to help you minimise your taxes?

  3. Hey, Jeff and Vic, treat this as nothing more than a complaint about the taxman.

    It has, of course, NOTHING to do with how much Microsoft is paying him.

    The fact that his son can’t be sent to a higher calibre but more expensive school (which he would certainly be bright enough to benefit from)?

    None of your darned business.

    So carry on paying him the pittance that he currently is too reasonable to complain about.

    And don’t blame yourselves, if…

    Oh, yeah, this is an anonymous posting, so you can ignore it.

  5. You should go talk to somebody about getting Microsoft Money to give you better advice so you can avoid those big April IRS payments.

    Sorry couldn’t resist.
