Woo-hoo! We are finally, FINALLY caught up! It's been... a long while.
There will be non-zero balances in the future, I'm sure. (Among other things, the power connection on my laptop has gotten really finicky, so I think that means it's time to replace it sooner, rather than later.) But for now, I'm just going to be excited about being in the black, even if it is only a transient phenomenon.
