Have you tried Money Manager? I much prefer it to MS Money. I downloaded it from a Google link about a year ago I think. It may not be the sort of thing you are after but worth a look as it is (or was) free.
Great thanks for that, I'll have a look for it. Yes I like MS Money but it's not supported in the UK any more so sucks a bit on that score, is looking very old now (although it works so it's ok as far as it goes).

Does anyone know of any good systems that work well on a Mac? I've tried Ultimatcher but it doesn't seem to like me.
Does any one have a spread sheet they use for recording dutches?
Mine doesn't have any fancy graphics or even look nice lol . Its the default spreadsheet with about 9 columns (bookie1 odds 1 stake 1 .. same for bookie 2.. loss .. WR ) .. I want 1 that rivals the back/lay spread sheet
Im sorry but i dont have a Mac so i cant help there.
Also to SuperDash i dont have a Spreadsheet that would help because i dont have any Spreadsheets i dont think they are necessary for the way i bet, i only ever do two way bets, and on markets that are simple and i fully understand. If you are just either backing/laying or dutching two sites it is maths you can do in your head or on a bit of paper and round it so i do that.
Having seen some of the three way arbs and the +1.5/2 goals Asian Handicaps bets some people pull off i would definitely need some kind of computer/spreadsheet assistance. But i find for the way i do it my brain and a scrap of paper is all you need to consistantly lock in a pretty decent return, it is easier to raise your turnover than your % return per bet, so i do that.
Have a plan and stick to it
Not for doing the maths .. windows calculator does that for me if my own head can't.. I'm on about for recording the dutches. Like .. I dutched with Gamebookers .. and the other bookie wasn't Pinnies .. it took me about 45 minutes to remember where it was .. turnt out it was Mybet or something .. but I just prefer to know what I did where .. I've made an ugly basic spreadsheet for recording it .. everything put in manually and such .. it will suffice for now.

on subject of this , im looking for a good calculator that give me overlay / underlay options
i had jh match , but its stopped working and i cant get it back up
A notepad file that has all the bets I currently have live (typically may be around 20-50 offers). As soon as an offer is complete I just delete it off.
An excel spreadsheet with usernames & passwords.
An excel spreadsheet with bank/neteller/moneybookers balances plus a list of offers I'm currently doing with WR details, expiry dates etc.
A little freeware app alarm clock that sits in my task bar & usually has about 10 reminders at any given time ("expekt reload expires xx/xx/xx", "Poker tourny at 5.00pm 22nd") etc.
The excel spreadsheets with usernames/passwords etc are on a usb key with built-in 256AES encryption.
I used to use reams of paper but got out of that habit a couple of months ago & the above system, whilst fairly primitive, seems to work exceptionally well for me.

It was be much appreciated if you could send that over.
