Vanguard Fund, Admiral, ETF = 3 Tickers !!!

Post by Bongleur » Fri Dec 16, 2011 2:04 am

Oftentimes people save their own time by only writing a ticker symbol in their post title or even in the post itself.

Would it be possible to set up the board so that if you "hover" over a ticker symbol, it will pop up a box telling you the name & all 3 tickers?

As a matter of fact, yes. Or at least something close to what you describe.

It is not a change to the board software, but something that each user can choose to do on their own.

Let's suppose there is a .1% chance there is a virus or worm in the program. The author of the virus knows I have a Vanguard account and could conceivably access my account. Do you have absolute proof this program is safe?

Yes. Look at the source code.

Well, don't trust my opinion of it (I'm the author). Though I hope that you don't share your account details here in public (or use the same username/password here and at Vanguard). And don't let your browser save your Vanguard password.

True enough. Take it for what its worth, or expand on it if you wish. I made a conscious performance tradeoff.

Very nice. :beer

GreaseMonkey scripts are run inside their own sandbox, which helps protect against malicious code. It also makes performance profiling difficult (which can be done with firebug, but I haven't tried it here). I assume that it's running as fast as possible.
