Dear Ryan,

Thanks for the explanation.

insert newbie question

I hear accountant-types talk about "debits" and "credits". In general, what sorts of things are what? I have a feeling that this is part of "accounting 101" :)

BTW, what accounting texts did you use/would you recommend? FDWBaltimore recommended Granoff and Bell, but its out of print. I have grabbed White et. al. from the library, I haven't yet bought it, but I will...

I figure that I can't learn enough about accounting :)
