On Vox: Online financial software

Has anyone found an online financial software package that allows you to add your own accounts and transactions?

I've tried three of them; mint, wesabe, and quicken online. These all depend on handing your security credentials to them and they will pull the data for you. I want a piece of software that doesn't violate the basic rules of security and lets me add accounts that I want... importing my old information would also be a plus.

All of this brought on by the fact that Intuit hasn't put out a new version of Quicken for Mac in almost three years.

There's nothing physically wrong with me. Hurray *waves tiny flag*

There are chances it will occur again but hopefully not for a long time, and the doctor said that people don't die from atrial fibrulation.

To celebrate, I think I'll get myself a motorcycle. :)

I took today off.

and I just got back from the ER. I had an atrial fibrulation (sp?). Apparently my heart was running at about 200BPM and skipping beats. It's a long overdue bedtime now.


They gave me drugs: Toerol XL 50mg.

They had a nickname for this of "Holiday Heart". So named because people will often come in with it after binge drinking or something. I was in Napa yesterday tasting wines so that could be a possible cause.

I hate software

OSX: The item "bigfile.sparseimage" cannot be copied because there is not enough free space.

I check, 500GB free on the target, 20GB file. I try making a directory.... works fine. I try copying a small file.... same error.

After checking logs and whatnot I realize that this is probably a machine that hasn't been on in a very long time. Check the clock... It's 1999, fix it. Error goes away.

I'm sorry, Apple... how can a clock set to before the turn of the century make it believe that there isn't enough disk space. Do the greater-than/less-than operators change meaning depending on the season?

Accent meme

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)


You're not Northern, Southern, or Western, you're just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don't really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.

UFO? Roach motel? Drum brake?

It's actually a crisping sleeve that came with a small microwavable (but I'm not using the microwave) pizza that I just bought. I'm now wondering if they offer engineering degrees for microwave food. I'm also never paying money for one of these pizzas again.

Saw "Stardust" today, and liked it very much. Love the story and characters, and I would recommend it to anyone who would like fantasy films.

Also, a few weeks ago I was visiting ovaltine8, pimento amd julsey in Seattle. We went and saw the wonderful show "Young Frankenstein" at the Paramount theater, and that was wonderful as well.

I've got like 500 or more burned CD/DVD media with data on them. Data which I don't think other people should have, but not sensitive data. Anyone have ideas on how I can dispose of them?

(At least with 3.5" diskettes I could erase them)
