comment How safe is the quicken encryption of files?
Yes, I am doing something similar: re-encrypting the file myself. But, I am still wondering how good quicken is by itself and if anyone has looked at this. It is so popular that someone must have examined it, right?!?

That's a great report! (bad for Quicken, apparently they suck). But, they are analyzing Quicken 2000. Is there a similar report for Quicken >= 2008?

Yes. I can get 2 monitors working with xinerama, perfectly. But I cannot get the 3rd one working. The 3rd one is one a separate video card.
