Better to keep most money in Personal or S-Corp account?

My friend and I were talking the other day about the best way to arrange his personal and corporate accounts for his Corporation he formed to write and direct under. There are no employees and overhead is small to nothing. He says he feels better having the majority of his money in the corporate account in case he gets sued, but isn't that why most people DONT have all their money is that account? I thought most people in his situation started an s-corp to protect and keep their personal assets safe. Am I wrong?

How to keep google from associating my work account with stupid youtube videos?

I use multiple google accounts, and their multiple sign-in feature is generally very helpful to me. I have a work google domain account, managed by my company, and a personal google account. Lately, when I have gone to youtube or google voice, it often associates to my work account, which I do not want. I'd prefer that my work account is only associated with gmail. Is this possible?

Customizing the Guest Account

Mac Leopard operating system: Can I customize the user icon and desktop wallpaper of the guest account? The default user icon for the guest account is a male silhouette; I would like to change it, but it does not give this option in the system preferences like it does for standard user accounts. Also, the default desktop wallpaper for the guest account is the outer space picture. It goes back to this desktop on every log in. I would like the guest account wallpaper to be a professional logo.

Need accounting software design with IT consulting in mind

I've been struggling to find accounting software, online or PC/Mac based (either will do) that is suitable for a computer consulting practice. I need to be able to handle the typical basic things done by QuickBooks, like invoicing and estimates, simple A/R and A/P reports, etc. But that isn't enough. I need to manage multiple bill rates on a per consultant/per customer/per job or work order basis. QuickBooks doesn't do that, and I've tried hard to find out how to make that work. Any advice, hive mind?
