I knew this was coming based on recent usage of Quickbooks 2007… but here’s the letter I received from Intuit today:
This probably isn’t really extortion, but it sure feels like it. I now have to shell out $160 to buy a product I don’t want, so I can keep e-mailing invoices to advertisers.
For what it’s worth, the reviews of QB2010 are lousy. Groan.
Since we didn’t want to make the long drive to Death Valley two days in a row, today we did attractions about an hour to our south, in the heart of the Mojave Desert.
First up was a quick stop at the airplane retirement home in Mojave. Pretty neat, would love to walk around all those planes!
After that we went to the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound’s Feline Conservation Center in Rosamond, CA. If you like wild cats, this is the place. From bobcats to leopards, they have them all.
Finally, we went to the Desert Tortoise Conservation Area. Unfortunately, it was too cold for any reptiles to be out (which thankfully includes snakes), so it was just desert. Still, it was a nice walk in a stark, but beautiful place.
