Working from my iPad while the desktop is busy doing backups in preparation of downloading and installing the first draft of my Drake Software. Now, before anyone hollers at me, I do have nightly offsite backup and regular catch ups to a UBS drive that goes with me. But before I change my software, I want to make sure all my settings are properly backed up.
I hadn't planned on doing this until next week after I attend the Drake update on Monday. But, I understand that there are some changes to the document manager and I want to check those out so if I have questions, I can ask then at that time.
I've also begun to get other supplies ordered. Calendars for my pre-season mailing and reference materials are on the way. (a lot was ordered in the spring when there were deep discounts.)
PTIN has been renewed and CPEs are almost finished. But there is still practice with the new software and getting the computers networked. 2 of 3 computers were upgraded the summer and I never redid the network. I can't put it off any longer.
I also need to check with my cloud services to see if I need to increase storage size for them. I'd really hate to have to deal with not enough space in Febuary.
And there is cleaning, shredding the files I can and a lot more. So, while most people are decorating and preparing for the holiday, I'm preparing for January 22, 2013. That's the first day we can e-file. That is if Congress gets to work on AMT and the extenders.
