Re: Roll Call for the Retirement Class of 2016!

Retired July 31, age 62. That didn't last long. I got a letter in the mail asking if I wanted to fly after a lifetime of working on the ground. So I called and asked if it was a joke since the FAA has a mandatory airline pilot retirement of 65 and I was then 30 months from turning into a pumpkin. No...

Re: Is LastPass still top in security, any reason to switch?

Curious why KeePass has fallen out of favor; I believe I heard about it from recommendations here. I use KeePass on my Linux desktop and KeePass2Android on my phone, syncing the password database via Dropbox. I like it very much but setup was a bit convoluted (mainly to do w/ Dropbox API keys).

Re: H&R BLOCK Pre-Order 2019 Software Offer

I poked around a bit last year and could not find a way to report the bug I ran into (which I mentioned earlier).

Re: H&R BLOCK Pre-Order 2019 Software Offer

I started using HRB last year. I used TaxAct for a very long time until SecondStory was sold and the price games began. I tried TurboTax but found it cumbersome and limited. I am self employed and have several different income streams to manage and pay tax on. Last year, I built a spreadsheet based ...
