Who knows if that title will work? Technology is not my friend today, so it probably won't. I have spent most of the last 10 hours trying to get Quicken Mac to Quicken Windows. Had I known when I started all this that Quicken Mac doesn't easily convert to Windows, I'm not sure I would have ever bought the software in the first place. I am certain that I have exported, uploaded, downloaded, and imported my 5 bank accounts at least 30 or 40 times. Lord only knows how someone who doesn't know their way around a computer would do this. Then again, someone who doesn't know computers wouldn't be stupid enough to have a mac and a windows machine in the first place, let alone think that they can play nicely together.
In case anyone tells you that it doesn't pay to use Windows, explain that simply by moving from Mac to Windows my checking account balance went up $13,736.63. It only took me 2 of those 10 hours to figure out how to get rid of the extra $13,700.
When I finally get the whole thing transferred and I have the balances near reality again, I try to log on so that I can pay my bills. I used Quicken Bill Pay without problems on the Mac. Windows won't connect. That's another hour or so of that 10 hours. A good portion of it on the phone with tech support with a guy who claims there are only two people there and that he can't understand what's going on with my account. The call ended with him telling me that he has to fill out a work order or whatever cuz he can't solve the problem. Okay. Then he tells me that it will take SEVERAL DAYS for the information to be entered and he'll call me back Wednesday
. By then, I'll have slashed my wrists.
See? Not a good day. When not fighting with Quicken, I have people mad at me in e-mail plus e-mail about "being more hopeful" in my writing for next week. Geesh. How could you look at this day and have any hope at all? Some days I should just stay in bed.
