Okay, I know that most readers will not be shocked by the title of this post. Most are well aware of my status of being nearly filled to the brim with crap. But this is a particularly egregious example of my personal hypocrisy.
After making this particularly hostile statement towards upgrading Quicken, I went out and bought Quicken Deluxe 2005. That and I bought the TurboTax software for federal and state software. All by Intuit, thus making my statement of hostility towards them fairly meaningless.
But frankly, the rebates and all that you get by buying all three of them were so good I couldn’t pass it up.
Upgrading Quicken to the 2005 version was a bit of a pain as it decided that it didn’t need to convert absolutely everything over, leaving out a number of fairly important transactions and making me have to go back and figure out what was missing manually. It also looks a great deal different from the 2002 version so I’m still trying to get my head around what I’m doing with some of it.
