Bad bad bad

I just upgraded to Quicken2004 Mac from a 6 year old version that only ran on OS9. The product, however, is even crappier than before.

First off, in the budget window if you spend less than the budgeted amount, the "% difference" column shows you a nice number in the range of around 2 billion. Good job guys. Always be sure to subtract with unsigned ints.

Secondly, bugs that were in the 1998 version are still present in the 2004 version, such as it thinking that November is located about half-way in a yearly timeline.

It's clear to me that the Intuit developers don't even use their own product. I hate how you cannot return software once you buy it. Please don't make the same mistake I did.
