Anyone use Bill.com
I just started working with a CPA and he recommended Bill.com along with quickbooks for billing. I'm just wondering if anyone has used it and what their experience is?
Office 2013 (PC) versus Office 365?

I am thinking about opening a solo practice and am debating the benefit of an answering service as opposed to using a voicemail/cell phone. Any thoughts? Any suggested sites?
Living in a Browser (Chrome OS)
Updated: I went ahead and bought a Samsung Chromebook, and I'm adding my experiences (and answering questions) in this thread. Click here for the latest update.
I am in love with the idea of Chrome OS. I already do most of my work in a browser, and…
Does anyone here have any experience working with HoudiniESQ? I am tempted by the fact that it is free for solo attorneys, but I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has experience using it. (Learning curve, features, support, etc.)

Has Lawyerist ever done a survey of the members on which case management software (or other software, as well) they are using and how satisfied they are? Search didn't turn up anything.
If not, is this something that would be worthwhile?
