November is Financial Literacy Month.   Poverty Alleviation is all year long.

November November November; the cold gale winds of November. What comes to mind when one thinks of November. In The Cold November Rain another great lyrical tune and song that best describes a hard time.

Knowledge is Power and empowerment is something else. It’s something you have that you can trade, exchange or give away freely in a best case scenario. You wouldn’t give away your money if you needed it; however you may inform and educate in a way that is conducive to giving away something important and meaningful.

Who needs help should come here ask and interact with what we as a collective have to offer freely. Who has wisdom and experience should line up to give back and pay it forward. Therefore everyone is invited to the new Investment Marketplace the have’s and the have not’s, the 99 and the 1%. Creating an even playing field for one or many, for the rich and well to do, the poor and the average Canadian.

Groups and gangs rule the day…with many we are one. It sounds good in principal and means the wealth will take matters in to their own hands. And it means if you are not born rich or have not striven to higher means then you may be part of an under-served community and can all yourself an average Canadian. And this new breed of Canadian is savvy, demanding and wants and warrants more.

Let us cater to the 99…great news it is a bigger market share however they have not risen still being asleep. And when they realize and understand the small print and fuzzy math they have surely let time and the time value of money disappear on their watch.

Financial Literacy for Canadians from here on will be known and explored as:

Free Personal Finance Software: Microsoft Money Sunset Version

July 25, 2010

10 comments

Last year, Microsoft decided to stop selling its Money personal finance software and announced that no future updates to the software will be available. Existing Money Plus customers can continue to use the software and access online services (such as data sync with MSN Money or statement downloads) until their copy expires on Jan. 31, 2011. At that time Microsoft also announced that it will soon be releasing a “Sunset” version of Money Plus that will not require online activation and will not have an expiry date.

Recently, Microsoft made good on that promise and made Sunset versions of Money Plus Deluxe and Money Plus Home & Business available for download (here and here). Here’s the surprise: you do not have to be a current Money user or provide proof of purchase of any earlier version of Money to download and install the Sunset version. That’s very good news if you are looking for free personal finance software and have been frustrated with competing offerings such as GNU Cash. Though the Sunset versions do not offer online services such as portfolio updates, a number of home brew hacks are already available (such as this one called PocketSense) that update stock price information from financial websites.

If you are a current user of Money Plus, you may want to wait until Jan. 31, 2011 to install the sunset version of Money. If you are still running an earlier version of Money, make sure you first backup the Money file before installing and trying out the Sunset version. Better yet, try out the Sunset version by installing it in an entirely different machine and copying over your current Money data file.

Microsoft deserves a pat for making a fine personal finance product available for free for anyone to download. It would have been even more wonderful if Microsoft had made the Money source code available to the open source community to continue to develop and improve.
