Ask HN: Best expense reporting app for small business (~50 employees)?
2 points • 2 comments
I don't know if the sounds generated are actually helping or not (could totally be a placebo), however it's a seamless way to enter flow state, I've found. I've been using it for ~4 years now, and it very very rarely fails to deliver.
We're looking to switch to Gusto (from an amalgam of spreadsheets and pdfs). It's a compelling product for an SMB like us (~35 employees). Two things I'd love to see
1) Time tracking Kiosk app, where more than one employee can clock in/out without having to enter their login/password. This is common for blue collar work etc.
2) Scheduling, so when time off requests come in, management can make an informed decision on whether to approve the request.
Kudos on building a great product so far!
Good on ya!

Courtland has made it specifically for this sort of thing.
You could sell $5 fidget spinners or $500,000 Rolls Royces. Costs would be highly dependent on the industry/product.
However, what's limiting is that physical goods depend on physical distribution.
Theoretically, software's available market is the entire planet. Physical goods only go where you can physically send (and support) your product.
All else being equal, distribution plays a larger role in the discrepancy between physical vs. software.
We're at $11M on 35 employees slinging physical stone slabs.
I'd expect a software company to be much higher on $rev/employee.

I have two main passive incomes:
Cardano Staking - My holdings have grown 3x this year. (~$2300/month)
Industrial Real Estate - Holdings have remained stable mostly, with a few upsets. Have super stable tenants in industrial spaces that they have little incentive to leave. This is with an investment group, so I'm only own 5-10% of the building through LLCs. (~$2700/month)
I keep toying with a few SaaS ideas in the logistics space, but haven't earnestly launched anything. This is a library I'm working on slowly, and I think it has legs to have a commercial offering. I know it won't be passive, but one can dream :D
This looks fantastic!
What I haven't found is a similar open-source project for distributors who work B2B. Their (our) customers also need to browse products, have invoice history, place product on hold, get notified when we have get stock, get delivery updates etc. There are enough minor differences that Shopify (or Medusa) can't be used for small/mid sized distributors, which makes me think there is a market for a product like that.
If I'm missing some software that fills this need, HN please enlighten me!
I've been on Ubuntu/PopOS! for the last ~5 years and the biggest reasons I think about switching back to macOS is printer and scanner support.
I have a Fujitsu Scansnap scanner and two Brother printers. Although I got the Fujitsu scanner to work, it didn't have all the software goodies (auto-straighten, OCR etc.). It works out of the box on mac. I cannot get my color printer to work with my Lenovo Thinkpad PopOS machine, and the black and white Brother printer works, but is..... fiddly.
If I also had to edit images/video regularly, I'd switch back to macOS.
I also didn't get it, however I only trade options once in a while. I don't know whether they should put a tutorial/about section, but I'd love to know what this is for, if anyone would care to shed some light.
Ask HN: Best smart locks for new home?

I think smart contracts are here to stay.
However, I'd instead check out Cardano's (ADA) Plutus platform . It's a subset of Haskell as I understand it. They have a online playground to simulate contracts .
Cardano also has a ERC-20 converter , so expect a lot of projects to also move to Cardano (given the much lower fees and higher throughput) when smart contracts are released in August/September.

When you buy before you sell, it's called a 'long' trade. You expect the stock to rise in value. Normal trade.
When you sell before you buy, it's called 'short' trade. You expect the stock to fall in value.
I shorted GME at $25 (sold), expecting it would fall to $12, where I could buy it back.
/r/Wallstreebets and others decided to keep buying to make the 'shorts' buy (i.e. cover) also, creating a buying frenzy and an insane rally.
