Well, the big switchover is done. After much to-ing and fro-ing yesterday, the end result is a difference of $2.31 between the old inventory valuation and the new inventory valuation. Hallelujah! (For those who go, "Uh?! But they're not the same?!", I have two words for you: "Rounding error." This is why bank programmers can get away with embezzling big bucks--or used to. They would just stuff the rounding difference in many hundreds of thousands of transactions--millions!--and end up with a tidy sum stashed away in another account. In this case, the inventory manager is happy, I'm happy, the comptroller is happy. Ahhhh.) So, in a timely confluence of events, I am celebrating my independence from durance vile on our nation's birthday. We plan to try for fireworks tonight. The dotter, who has been kept up two nights in a row by COUSINS!!!! may actually be able to stay up for the fireworks. We shall see. Some people have a different view of Liberty and Independence than I do (via Pharyngula):
Remind you of anything? Let's make sure this doesn't really happen here; I hate veils of that type, and, besides, they give me pimples 'cause I sweat like a pig underneath all that drapery.
