Just some off-topic bs...

I've been using the Office 2010 beta from Microsoft for a long time now, and it expires on Halloween so I thought this might be my perfect opportunity to ditch Microsoft and go to OpenOffice. That really doesn't bother me much, as I very rarely use Office, just some Excel worksheets that are pretty simple so I imagine OpenOffice has no problem with them.

What bothers/concerns me is Outlook. I live in email all day, I have many accounts and something like 300k emails in Outlook (I unfortunately lost my mail about 3 years ago, so that's only a few years worth). I've used Outlook for around 15 years. I think the only thing I've ever used besides Outlook was probably Eudora around 15 years ago.

Tonight I downloaded Thunderbird from Mozilla, and I am happy to report it is fantastic! I really like the tabbed account views, it seems to be multi-threaded and well suited to managing multiple accounts at once. The search seems fast and capable, and I like the client view options. So I am pleasantly surprised! And I just discovered there are add-ons to Thunderbird similar to add-ons for Firefox, so that is quite interesting, I'll have to check those out!

It is still syncing accounts... it's about 50% through (150k downloaded, 150k to go from various accounts) but I like it so far.

I won't install OpenOffice until all my mail is transferred and I can stop using Outlook, then uninstall Office 2010 beta. Hopefully tomorrow.

Anyone else using Thunderbird? Anyone using OpenOffice?

Mike

I've used Open Office since it came out (when ever that was) and really like it.

However, there is one problem. NT puts a ' in the front of numbers when exporting from NT to the Open Office Calc spreadsheet. Since you are not using NT and there is currently no MC beta (I PM'ed with Stan about doing some testing of MC when the next version is out) I'd be interested to see how MC handles outputs of the Trade Reports.

As far as Thunderbird I used to use it, after I lost a ton of emails from Outlook when I migrated to Win 7 pro. Finally settled on Gmail. As it is an IMAP vs. POP question. I like having everything centrally located. So, Gmail is like having my office anywhere I go.

Well my migration from Outlook to Thunderbird is complete, as is my migration from Office to OpenOffice. Office 2010 beta has been uninstalled (ironically, there was an "unknown error" during uninstallation, and it's still half baked... but that's Microsoft for you).

So far I really am impressed with Thunderbird. As for OpenOffice, ugh... it's really hard to re-learn a new interface, I was actually very used to the Ribbon interface and knew my way around Excel 2010. Now I can't even figure out how to add a forecasting linear regression trendline to my OpenOffice charts.... I will have to Google it.

Something has to give. Every congress and administration since Coolidge has created more debt, more entitlement programs and more burden on the productive taxpayers to buy themselves more votes from dependent masses.

Sooner or later, there will be more taking from government than paying in. What then. I feel bad for everyone that is currently dependent on Medicare and Social Security.....my parents are in that group, but the cycle of more promises that can only be fueled by debt must come to an end or the market will end it for us....and that is not a pretty picture.

Read The Creature From Jekyll Island if you want to know why all these seemingly pointless bailouts keep happening.

Its a fascinating read even if you don't agree with the conclusions. I have now watched the exact scenario play out the book describes in great detail over the last 10 years....and this book was written almost 20 years ago. Currently in its 4th printing......

And the link is an affiliate link. If you buy it there, I get paid.....full disclosure.

We're 225 users away from hitting 10,000 members. Will be interesting to see if we can hit it before end of November. Because of the holidays, I think it will take a few extra days, but it is hard to tell.

10,000 is kinda a big deal, so just wanted to post about it

LOL, 195 to go now. I think it will slow down on Wed/Thr/Fri/Sat/Sun so we'll have to get most the way there by then...

I for one will be playing GT5 on Wednesday and for a long time after that

Well so far the govt hasn't been able to stop it. Although they are trying, so we'll see.

I have mixed feelings on the whole thing. For one, I want the corruption uncovered, and it is rampant. Especially for the Bank they want to name, I think most Americans have no idea just how corrupt the system is and maybe this will demonstrate it.

But for two, there are some things that have to be kept secret or other countries will not cooperate with us any longer. That obviously has major impact. But there are two things at work here, national security and sovereignty of the United States, and then the second is corruption between Corporate America (Wall Street) and the govt. I for one wouldn't mind the later being uncovered.

Still, what do you think the govt will learn from this? Just to hide their agenda better is my feeling.

You're probably right. I am hoping it will cause a number of Americans to 'wake up', stand up, and show the government, the people will not stand by and be manipulated and lied to by the people who are supposed to be looking out for our best interest.

Time will tell.

There will always be someone who will want to blow the whistle, whether from being a disgruntled employee or someone wanting to make a stand. The traditional checks and balances in the US have been erroded, so Wikileaks is filling a gap that mainstream media doesn't want to/can't touch. I'd like to think that something will change from this, but I think you are right about hiding their agenda.

First, when mentioning, there is no space after the @ sign.

Second, to embed youtube clips just wrap the normal youtube URL in the [yt]url here[/yt] tags.

Just too funny that this guy actually engaged an e-mail scammer for quite a few days.

This happened to TMFT (ThatManFromTexas) recently & almost pulled me into the scam. Thanks to Big Mike for warning me away from this. At the time, it looked very convincing. I truly thought TMFT was in trouble.

Hope TMFT is reading this!

Never Give Up...

What is sad is the freaking insanity between CBS and NBC about the reunion between the guy and his mother, each wanted an exclusive and was preventing them from seeing each other until they could work out who had the media rights to the footage.

Just too funny that this guy actually engaged an e-mail scammer for quite a few days.

This happened to TMFT (ThatManFromTexas) recently & almost pulled me into the scam. Thanks to Big Mike for warning me away from this. At the time, it looked very convincing. I truly thought TMFT was in trouble.

Hope TMFT is reading this!

Enjoy:

A Day With an E-mail Scammer - NYTimes.com

I was in trouble... afterward. The scammer claim jumped one of my throw down email accounts, contacted the Wizard and when the Wizard didn't fall for it... the scammer started sending email to call girls ... For Real ... So I went through the sent file and contacted everyone that he had contacted and told them what happened... most of them thanked me... one wrote back and said "So... does this mean you aren't still coming to see me?"

Yes that actually happened.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Do you guys and gals ever look at trading videos. This guy on youtube trades some serious size. Like 450 in the ES and 50 6E. He shows his DOM, but you can't tell if its live or sim. I think its live. He doesn't do much commentary, so not very educational. Most of the videos are at high speed. It may not be helpful, but its interesting to see someone trade that kind of size and have end with a PnL of 100K+. If you can figure out how he is trading please share.

Do you really think someone trading this size with real cash will spent time on making videos ?
With RAP as background sound ?

Sam, I know it seems crazy or odd, but I don't think making videos or the kind of music he uses is an indication of anything. It is my understanding that some of the most successful traders are not the sharpest tools in the shed and that they may even be what some would call blue collar. If the guy is young enough and likes Rap and is making this kind of money then he has the time to do the videos etc and may enjoy it. I an not 100% certain, but some of the videos are of him in the Thinkorswim chat room while trading. Unless it's a scam it seems valid. There is also the aspect of ego and from what I gather this guy has a big one.

one way to verify it, if you have time, is to record t&s then match it with his dom his order should show up on t&s. That was how we busted Frank Soarz from TI.
