Anybody remember hardcards?


Well, the Tempo HD would be the modern equivalent. I forget what I was searching for when I stumbled upon this. But, when I saw it....I decided it would be the thing to try in my continuing quest to squeeze more life out of my poor P-III 933MHz machine.

I was using a CF card for swap, but it didn't squeeze out the performance gain that I was looking for. And, seems to have decayed as well. Perhaps a 7200RPM internal drive will help things, plus the extra internal storage will be helpful for other things as well.

So, now having a 100GB 7200RPM drive for it, I set out to try it.

TD Waterhouse -> TD Ameritrade & MSMoney

Recently, TD Ameritrade completed its combination of us former TD Waterhouse users on their site. The letters all implied that the process, starting May 11th to May 14th, would be business as usual. Even though I would have new account numbers, I would continue to use the same checks, the same debit card, the same signon information.

But, first thing early Friday (May 11th) morning, I was no longer able to access my account using MSMoney. >:-( I kept going through the new setup, which is still basically the same. I still had my special MSMoney login, but it wouldn't work. Since I was departing for a business trip that weekend, for a week, and I hoped that it was just a temporary problem due to the transition process....I put off calling TD Ameritrade to ask what was up.

Well, I'm back, and it still doesn't work. Just as I was about to call, on a whim I decided to plug in my site userid/password instead of the special login that the online service setup keep telling me that I needed....and it worked. :**:

I wish somebody had mentioned this to me in either the letters mailed to me or the numerous emails, or even on the website on the popup about changes (which contained something about changes affecting Quicken users).

I wonder if they fixed the annoyance of how cash management is down in the OFX feed? :|

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
