Booted up today and ran some programs. Quicken SE shows the date today as 1/1'0. I would bet this will not tie in with my tax program for this coming year. Where can I sign up ?

Send me US$100,000 (certified check or bearer bonds). I'll send you all the info. You're welcome.

Sure truk. And I'll bet you drive a Chevy too. Got milk ???

-- Rob (maxovrdrv51@hotmail.com), January 02, 2000.

I'd have no truk with Mr. thong if I was you.

-- Andy (2000EOD@prodigy.net), January 02, 2000.

No, I drive a Mercedes-Benz. I don't actually have any milk at home today (not that I can't afford it). I just don't use it much unless I'm making cappuccinos.

How kewl! So glad I came here.

Welcome, Jor-El. The TimeBomb 2000 forum beats network television for sheer entertainment as well as veracity of reportage. I don't know if that says more about this forum or television. Well, you're the superhuman entity, you figure it out. Thanks!

This poster Truk reminds me of the yapping little Pomeranian dog my sister has. It is always yapping, clawing and scratching around you ankles trying to get attention. It also contributes nothing to the conversation except noise.

Intuit has a place on its website where you can sign up to get a free copy of Quicken 98 which is compliant. They sent us a postcard since we had an earlier version which was not. We received our copy of the compliant version within a couple of weeks.

Thank you very much. I will check it out.

The Quicken98 download would be a good thing, but have you tried typing in a 4 digit year rather than just "00" ? My version of Quicken says it shows dates earlier than 1950 with an apostrophe. If you have not yet changed the short date format in Windoze and your Quicken SE doesn't have the pivot point for two-digit entries, the year 1900 would be written as '0 Try typing in a 4 digit year.

Thanks for the heads-up. I just tried the 4 digit but it woudn't hold. Win'98 is set to 4 digit year also. Looks like an upgrade is the answer. Oh well.
