I've been using a Windows 3.1 version of Quicken since the mid 90's that came with my first 486 computer. Believe it or not, I've got it to work off a flashdrive on Vista except backup... it wants a floppy drive. It does everything I want, where new versions of Quicken or Money just make your life a living Hell. Hopefully, this will be a simple, viable alternative.

Hey! Murphy! What are you still doing here? You aren't on the podcast anymore, You published an official farewell in the magazine, so why are you still posting articles on the website? Not that I really care, I like free stuff, but I'm confused.

Correct. I'm no longer an editor at Maximum PC. However, having created nearly two years' worth of discs for the magazine, I'd like to consider myself somewhat of an expert on the open-source software community.  I write blog posts about these programs as I (and anyone, I would hope) enjoy seeing all the new ways I can use a PC without having to destroy my bank account in doing so.

Lots of cool stuff out there in the freeware/OSS community, and it would be silly to relegate that knowledge to just the monthly CD.

It's great to see that freeware writers are so awesome that they write a free alternative to EVERYTHING.

Don't worry; there will never be a free alternative to Scapegoat.  I won't allow it -- he is just too unique.

I think I recall a podcast that was the farwell to Dave Murphy... Is he back, did he leave? Not that I really care too much it's just I want to know if I'm getting addle minded.

 Dudes, you can leave a full time job at a magazine and still keep a side job of writing articles for their website. Work 10 jobs...it's the American way.... for most of us right now, it has to be.

 

Thanks again Murph!

Bingo. And thanks for the compliments.  The open-source community is an important part of the technological world, and I enjoy showing everyone free, new programs that they can use to replace otherwise expensive applications.  :D
