Another Day Wasted, Thanks Quick Books

Techs are a different breed of cat. The world changed somewhere and the bullied, misaligned dweebs, nerds, dorks, and geeks became the popular crowd. This actually happened quite some time ago. My recent debacle with the weird problem about a Microsoft update FUBARing the standard fonts brought out some of the best! Thanks out to everyone for all the help. Yes, it has been somewhat resolved, but Microsoft needs to 'man up" and issue an admission of their mistake. They also need to correct the problem. Actually this has probably happened covertly so as to avoid the guilt, lol!

Still desperately trying to make Windows 7 machines recognize XP Pro as a data server for Quick Books Pro. In a business scenario QB Pro is a necessary evil in my considered opinion. They are a horrible nasty company with little bitty support people. Their suppport techs are rude, crude and all in need of lessons in manners. QB experts spend mega bucks participating in annual seminars to help people use this software. They are certified independent contractors and all I've met are nice people. They don't even like the QB support techs. Anyway, anyone that has any advice, know-how, voodoo, or general knowledge about this problem please contact me.

"Software is usually accompanied by documentation in the form of big fat scary manuals that nobody ever reads. In fact, for the past five years most of the manuals shipped with software products have actually been copies of Stephen King's The Stand with new covers pasted on." ~Dave Barry
