It's official. I have ditched Timeslips Ten-point-infinity and moved on to Billing Matters, which is tightly integrated with Time Matters, which is now owned by Lexis, which is now owned by Reed Elsivier, which for all I know is a participant in the New World Order. At the very least it participates in the New Word Order created when one gets used to "natural language" searches instead of the elegant austerity of logical connectors. Those same connectors made me the terror of my eighth grade math club and served me well in the early days of Lexis (back when they were Mead Data Central). Oh, sweet bird of youth!
Review of Billing Matters: very steep learning curve. Great program, once you get used to thinking like a relational database. And I thought it was hard thinking like a lawyer! Now, for a dissenting opinion check with one of my partners, whose Time Matters data ended up in a twist and eventually plunged like Lucifer from Heaven, taking her computer with it. She ended up ditching BM and migrating to Timeslips. The moral of the story I guess is to maintain meticulous database hygiene. Not that she had, like, an unkempt database or anything.
