    Intuit + Bank of America finally broke Quicken 2005?

    I am using Quicken 2007 and have never been able to download Bank of America Visa data via either Webconnect or a downloaded QIF file. It will not allow me to use an existing account via Webconnect (I'm now up to "Credit Card 2 at Bank of America" - my third account for my Visa card) and the QIF only brings in the name of the vendor and date but not the amount. I don't use this card much and since the AMEX QIF download works flawlessly I haven't bothered to deal with Intuit Support.

    Parallels for Mac

    Wow - there is some intimidating (to me) stuff on the Gnome/Gparted site! I've got some studying to do.

    Parallels for Mac

    A virtual hard drive file.

    Parallels for Mac

    I have tried to devote more of my HD space to Parallels but I have only been able to increase the size of the unused partition set aside for Parallels. How can I adjust the relative size of the partitions for Parallels - or eliminate the partition entirely? I am speaking of the partition within Parallels, not the partition that the Mac devotes to Parallels.
  6. I have tried everything I can think of from resetting networks, reset all, reboot, start the old phone and turn off bluetooth. Any other ideas? It just keeps searching without discovering the headset.

    Default Application

    On some of my excel files, when I double click on them the Office Excel within Parallels attempts to start up to open the file. Which takes forever. How can I reset the file to only use the Mac version of Excel? I do right click to use "Open with" but would like to avoid the extra step.

    New Audio Buzz from MBP

    Wow, sounds quite unsolvable. While I normally have a couple peripherals plugged into the Display, I ran the experiment with nothing but the Display USB cable plugged into the MBP - still 60HZ buzz. Ok, let me add another piece to the puzzle. The problems seems to have coincided with removal of a malfunctioning APS battery backup unit. It was sensing power dips that were not happening so I plugged the power strip directly to the wall and disconnected the APC. But still... without the Cinema power supply even plugged in, I'm getting the buzz? BTW, thanks for all the info!

    New Audio Buzz from MBP

    OK, this is weird. I ran through the steps you recommend and it turned out to be the USB cable from the Cinema Display power adapter. But the buzz continues even with the adapter UNPLUGGED.

    New Audio Buzz from MBP

    Oops. Wrong! I tried removing the dock, plugged everything back directly into the MBP and the hum is back.

    New Audio Buzz from MBP

    Thanks - it is the Bookendz docking station. No problem when connected directly.

    New Audio Buzz from MBP

    I have the headphone jack audio out connected to a stereo and just recently it began an annoying buzz. The exact same cable chain is plugged into an iPod cradle with no problems, so the trouble is with the Mac Book Pro itself. Sounds like something not grounded, but never had a problem before. Any ideas?

    iChat font

    Appears to not be a problem when using Trillian on PC

    iChat font

    When IMing to a PC user using AIM from my Mac using iChat, the font appears huge to the PC, but normal on my screen. Any fixes?

    Quickbooks and emulators

    Haven't seen anybody replying - I would just backup to the stick again (maybe format it first) then restore to the Mac. I do this all the time, mostly without a problem.
