DENNIS MILLER

John Scully (and several others): ‘Friday’s rant is not from Dennis Miller. Check out Snopes.com – a great source for determining if something is true or not.’

☞ I hate when this happens. Mea culpa.

THE MARINE WHO WAS KILLED

Peter Yeates: ‘The last link in Friday’s column is broken. Should have been this.’

☞ Hate when that happens, too. Especially when it was such a poignant link.

TIPS

Kirk Elliot: ‘Thanks for yesterday’s update. You forgot to gloat about Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Merck (MRK) which you recommended July 24 – and I bought – up 34% and 37%, respectively.’

☞ If only that happened more often.

MISSING MYM

Bill Milosh: ‘Please, PLEASE, bring MYM back. Quicken is TERRIBLE! It is full of bugs and miscalculations that are just getting worse with every new version. If MYM were to reappear, people would run to the stores. I know I would. Read the reviews at Amazon.com. I miss my MYM!’

☞ Oh, me, too! And my royalties! (Well, I don’t miss my MYM because I still use it. But I miss my royalties!) And for those of us still using the DOS version, tomorrow is the day CheckFree is supposed to stop working for us. A sad day! In my own case, I will still use MYM DOS V12 but without CheckFree. I will set up as many bills for auto-pay as possible, and probably do the rest via my on-line Citi account, reentering in MYM. Not the best, but with so many years’ data in MYM, and data entry so easy, it shouldn’t eat more than another few minutes a month.

For any of you who never had MYM but wonder what the shouting’s all about – forget it. Finnish is a great language if you’re, well, Finnish. But quite impractical for the rest of us to learn at this late date. So it is with MYM, orphaned nearly a decade ago. Stick with Quicken or MS Money. Ah, but it was a Golden Age . . . especially those royalties.

AS TO THE REST

Ugh.
