I keep the family finances in MS$.  I still write checks by hand, enter
them into MS$ and balance it each month in MS$ when the statement comes.
  I also track a couple of car loans, mortgage, credit cards, 401k,
stocks, mutual funds.  The only thing it goes online for is to grab the
prices for the various stocks and mutual funds.  Nothing all that fancy.
 I'll give gnucash a try again and see how it goes.
