unofficial FAQ Home Page
[ Home ]


The Unofficial FAQ for is going away, the Unofficial FAQ for, has provided a Web home for questions and answers frequently asked in the Usenet newsgroup since March of 2004.

Since then, almost everything has changed. Microsoft abandoned Money. Usenet has essentially disappeared. (Though Microsoft most graciously continues to support a user community support forum at Many users of Money gave up on Microsoft Money and moved on to other tools for personal financial management or stopped worrying about their personal finances. Many of the resources linked to the FAQ have disappeared or relocated. I retired from my day job and moved to the tropics. The annual renewal price of .info domains has almost tripled. php has removed support for the deprecated mysql library calls from php 7. My hosting provider is starting to charge a per-month premium to use back-level versions of php, but the site uses the mysql API and would require more work to adapt to the mysqli interface, just to remain functional, than I am willing to put into the site content so that it remains relevant.

All these reasons bring us to where we are now: The page has outlived its usefulness and needs to be retired.

During a transition period, select content from this site will be migrated to a new site, in static form, without the database functionality. I will provide some level of redirects TBD from this site to the new site as the migrated content goes live there. As soon as the domain renews for 2016, I will set it to non-renew in 2017. Come late spring of 2017, will disappear from the World Wide Web.

Thank you to all my readers for your support over the years.
