Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Open source software for bill and document management?

Rinisari writes: Since striking out on my own nearly a decade ago, I've been collecting bills and important documents in a briefcase and small filing box. Since buying a house more than a year ago, the amount of paper that I receive and need to keep has increased to deluge amounts and is overflowing what space I want to dedicate. I would like to scan everything, and only retain the papers for things that don't require the original copies. I'd archive the scans in my heavily backed up NAS. What free and/or open source software is out there that can handle this task of document management? Being able to scan to PDF and associate a date and series of labels to a document would be great, as well as some other metadata such as bill amount. My target OS is OSX, but Linux and Windows would be OK.

In it, Wendel talks extensively about his video gaming background, how he got into professional gaming, and how he continues to be active in the e-sports scene. He also shares some advice to aspiring gamers: "The amount of information you'll gain at going to a LAN party compared to what you find out online is drastically different. I always said you'll learn ten times the amount of information by going to a LAN party than you will online, ever. ... Get to LAN parties, you'll learn way more.""
