Supported bank list updated

Wow, last time I checked the supported bank list for Small Business Accounting, there were only about 30 or so banks listed. There are many more now, although it's fair to say that most of the banks supported allow you to import a bank file.

Check it out:

I should say, I'm still on my quest for automatic Wells Fargo Support, however.

New Microsoft Blog on SBA

I haven't searched around for new information on Small Business Accounting for a while, but my recent searching has yielded an interesting new blog from the folks at Microsoft. Actually, it looks like it's been there for a few months already. There isn't a bio page, but it looks like the blog is written by Rajat Taneja, who leads the small business efforts at Microsoft, including: SBA, Business Contact Manager and Microsoft Point of Sale.

The posts are quite dense with some interesting insight into how products are designed and developed there. Interesting read -- I'll be keeping my eye on it...

It's been a long winter...

Anyone else have the same feeling? I think I'm out of the woods for now.

One thing I noticed a week or so ago was an invitation to the new Microsoft Small Business Accounting beta. I signed up, but haven't recieved anything else yet. I'm looking forward to see what kind of changes they've made.

Anyway, I plan on contributing more here over the next several months.
