The one killer with Moneydance is I couldn't see a way to show future-dated transactions in the same register as the current/past transactions. This is critical so I can get a clear view of how much...

One thing I didn't mention because it is a "feature" and I promised not to slag it on features, but there doesn't appear to be any way to change your register to single-line. I was incredulous you...

Quicken 2007 for Mac - is this a joke?

I've been using the Windows version of Quicken for the last decade, so when I bought an iMac (my first Mac) a few weeks ago, I picked up Quicken to go along with it.

What a COMPLETE PILE OF...

The one program that I still run on Windows (well, through Parallels at least) is Quicken. I tried the Mac Quicken, and it is a steaming pile, to put it gently. Eating downloaded transactions is...

1. If you have to repair the permissions every day, one of your apps may be going berzerk. Personally I'd just flatten the OSX install and put a fresh copy on. Also, if you doubled the RAM and it...

You have something junking up your OSX. You may also have a serious lack of RAM. If you have plenty of RAM, back up your files and flatten your hard drive with a new OSX install.

I can't think of a better bang-for-buck entertainment device than an XBox 360. You can rent HD movies/TV shows, d/l demos, etc. over the "Marketplace", which is very well done.

IMO, the 20" is the "sweet spot" in the iMac lineup (it's the one that my wife and I chose as well). For what a 24" costs, you might as well get a Mac Pro.

Last night I was dumping DV from a camcorder, installing a program in Parallels, playing a song in iTunes, AND playing a game (some physics motobike thing) all at once, and in 1 gig of RAM. FWIW.

Yeah, I think you can d/l a demo of it to make sure it will do what you want. Check your drive settings in XP to confirm this is your actual problem first.

For gamers who always buy the latest games, if you're going Mac you can NOT buy anything except a Mac Pro (the standalone tower). One reason: it's the only Mac whose video card you can upgrade.
