Fuck MS-Money...I'm Moving Over to Quicken

For a very very very long time, I've kinda just let my checkbook balancing go all to hell, so I guess it is time I re-assert some financial control. It's not that I haven't been keeping tabs, because I generally am right within a few hundred dollars.

However, the problem I have is that MS-Money isn't connecting to the financial institutions over my network connection all of the time. And there are some transactions I just can't perform in MS-Money that I can now do in Quicken (like keep track of my 401(k) because Quicken and my plan company have creted the online link).

So fuck it...I'm moving over to Quicken. Which is sad too, because I've used Microsoft Money ever since it came out in 1994. I'm tired of being Tina Turner and Microsoft being Ike.

Fix your fucking software, bizatches!

No more...big wheels keep on turning...rolling down the river...and all of that good stuff.

I don't need another hero...I need Quicken. :-)

A private finance application, an application for money, to do what you want it to do. That's, umm, better than all the rest.

Checkbooks are supposed to have balances? I must have missed something somewhere. LOL.

It's all fun and games until the ATM starts to laugh at you because you tried to take out money. Or even worse, the employees lock the doors and come outside to laugh at you because you have tried to take out money.

First, great song.

Second, I've been on Quicken for ages ... it's wonderful. Let me know if you need any tips or whatnot!

I might just take you up on that! I feel like I am starting all over, which I probably am, because I screwed up using Microsoft Money back in 1998 and never recovered, so I was accounting for some things Enron-style I think...knowing that I'd have to create entries to balance things out.

Viva La Quicken!
