Okay, it has been a while since I have really gotten excited about new software, especially financial software, but this version, coupled with my Android is definitely the exception! I was starting to wonder if Quicken was ever going to embrace the mobile community out there but with this new update it is everything I was hoping for and well worth the wait. Been testing the cloud, putting in transactions from my laptop and Android and everything syncs nicely. It will be a while before I can give it a full test, but at least right now I am pretty thrilled. I am now considering for the first time when I go on 2 week vacation to Hawaii this winter NOT lugging my laptop along! This I would say is the biggest Quicken "must have" upgrade since I started using it back with DOS 5.. Also kudos for the nice elegant interface on both the 2013 program and the app.
Id just like to point out to Alan Caylow, great review, totally wrong information regarding the story behind the making of the epic album/film Pink Floyd's The Wall.
It is actually loosely based on the life of Syd Barrett - co-founder of pink Floyd and the original front man of the group. Syd (real name Roger Barrett) was the man who turned Pink Floyd into one of the Greatest bands and the sudden death of his father when Barrett was 11 is believed to have been at least partly responsible for triggering the mental problems that plagued him as an adult.
In 1965, he introduced a different flair for musical innovation (and the name Pink Floyd) to a group who had mainly been playing covers of Rhythm & Blues songs.
Under Barrett's influence, Pink Floyd began to experiment with a jazz-based psychedelic sound. He used "low tech" techniques like sliding a cigarette lighter up and down his guitar's fret board to give Pink Floyd a distinctive sound different from any other bands.
As the band's success grew with its first two albums so did Barrett's erratic behaviour. He would wander aimlessly around the stage during live performances, or play just one chord throughout an entire concert. Heavy use of drugs, especially LSD, made his mental instability even worse.
Barrett left/got sacked from Pink Floyd in 1968, just three years after co-founding it and he left the music business altogether, living the rest of his life in near seclusion in his boyhood home in Cambridge, spending his time painting, gardening and avoiding the public eye.
Pink Floyd's 1975 album Wish You Were Here was written and released as a tribute to Barrett.
This is actually a well-known fact and when I read the review I just had to write my own to set the record straight!
The Wall is an amazing album and a brilliant film, but you must understand what is going on or you would be completely baffled!
It is not about education systems, Nazi Germany or even Roger Waters spitting on a fan, it is an insight into the mind of a man who was extremely talented yet on the brink of madness and I think it was a mixture of these and also the amount of drugs available at the time that sent poor Syd over the edge.
Roger Barrett (Syd) died in July 2006 at the age of 60 of complications caused by diabetes.
I'm really not going to go into too much detail in this review, because most of you who might be reading this are probably at least familiar with Pink Floyd and how cool their music is. (If you're not familiar with Pink Floyd, then there's something wrong with that...go and listen to them asap). This album is a quality offering by Pink Floyd. My wife had a copy at one point but something happened to it, and I'd ordered the Pink Floyd Discovery box set for her for Christmas...it was in great shape except the copy of The Division Bell did not work in it, so later I went ahead and ordered a copy of the Division Bell for her to replace it. Good stuff!
Once upon a time, our boss used a glass slipper to screen female candidates, but binders and clear plastic inserts magically proved themselves to be more flexible AND cheaper. We plan to hire a local girl/stepdaughter soon..ish. Possibly after our Annual Minority Job Fair Ball. In the meantime, we've outsourced chores to singing non-union woodland critters who cost only 0.7% what we pay the prince. Hi Ho!
