TurboCASH Portable edition (1) and use of Firebird for other databases (2)

Dear Turbocashites

The Turbocash programme has caught my eye - it looks really good and I am preparing to install it on my trusty laptop. I'm planning to get hold of the CD with all of the extras as part of that. I've queried the following on the community and haven't seen anything on them: apologies if I have duplicated questions asked elsewhere.

Turbocash portable edition

Before I do the installation I'd like to find out what the deal is on the 'Turbocash on a USB key'. Is this a fully functioning system, and am I able to clone and reinstall this on other USB keys to use on more than one entity? What are the pluses and minuses of using this version?


I'm also curious to know if I can use the SQL database once installed in Windows to create additional databases for data analysis etc.

Very best luck with the product, I am looking forward to using it.

Turbocash portable edition:
It's just like working on your pc.
+ you can do this on every computer (ie your accountant's) without the need of a loptop
- If you loose your USB stick (or forget it in your pants just before the laundry) you have nothing left.

You can add as many databases/tables/fields as needed

I have a farm in Africa

... and then they want to take the land back without compensation? The idea is preposterous.
Land only has value if you can keep another African off it. Land only has value if you have complete tenure, right down to the freedom to dispose of the asset.
Naive attempts to directly tax the ownership of Land…

The Case against Bitcoin

Posted by Philip Copeman on December 5, 2017 at 16:44 0 Comments

Will blockchain be enduring? – of course. Will Bitcoin be enduring? - not likely.

Unless you are familiar with the terminology of blockchain, having an argument about its future is like arguing with a physicist about the Big Bang. Right now the myopia caused by ignorance centres the crpyto discussion on Bitcoin, store of value and speculative demand. The real delivery of money, the medium of exchange and the unit of account that blockchain brings to anything from IOT…
