I was FORCED to upgrade my QuickBooks Pro 2013 to 2016, because Intuit will no longer support the older version after the end of May. So, if I want to continue to use the software that I've been using since 1998, I had no choice but to comply. That was bad enough, but the REAL problems with this upgrade are the changes for using the Intuit Payment Network. As a small business, I found IPN to be a helpful tool that allowed my customers to pay online easily, at a nominal cost to me (50 cents per transaction). QuickBooks Pro 2016 no longer allows this feature. If I want to use IPN, I must open a Merchant Account and pay 3.4% plus service fee for the privilege, if my customers use a credit or debit card to make payment. The 50 cent fee only applies if customers use electronic payment directly from a checking account. While this doesn't sound like a big change, for a small business that counts pennies, it IS. That percentage adds up to REAL money, month after month, annually costing several hundred dollars. The software upgrade is expensive enough, why is Intuit nickel and diming small businesses with such a change?
I've owned Pink Floyd "The Wall" on cassette, early vinyl, CD, and now this heavy vinyl reissue. It is my favorite rock album overall. I remember purchasing this record on cassette when it first came out. After listening to it all the way through for the first time in 1980, it was clear to me that it was and is an extraordinary classic, arguably PF's greatest album. This is PF's most fully realized album with so much happening both musically and lyrically that it challenges you to listen and understand the powerful concept and all of the tragedy that feeds into it. I remember being 16 years old when it was first released and digging into the lyrics to understand their message. It was then and some 30 odd years later it still is an emotionally powerful album. "The Wall" just doesn't succeed as a rock album; it succeeds as a true work of art. It is like a Shakespeare tragedy that's not designed to make us happy, but to help us learn from life's sufferings on both an historical level and on a personal level. Don't we all build walls in our lives in some way? The message of "The Wall" is to break down the walls that prevent us from being truly happy people.
