Two updates from the FileMaker and Accounting Integration world from Databuzz and Productive Computing.

Hot off the press (so to speak)…Databuzz’s video on FileMaker and Xero Integration

I have no experience using Xero, but hear it is a good alternative to Quickbooks. This video shows how easy it is to set up and use with their FileMaker App.

Mac Compatibility for Productive Computing’s QuickBook Plugin

And 64 bit compatibility for Windows, too.

The most recent release of our FM Books Connector Online Edition (FMBOE) plug-in (version 2) contains some pretty exciting updates. At least we think so. We have redesigned the plug-in for both FileMaker 64-bit and Mac compatibility.

Originally scripted with a C# wrapper, the plug-in was not compatible with the FileMaker 64-bit architecture. After extensive research, we were able to rebuild the plug-in with standard C++ libraries that enabled it to be 32-bit and 64-bit compatible.  This redesign allowed us to branch out and let the plug-in take on a more flexible nature.

With version 2, we knew it was important for us to also focus on Mac compatibility. While there have always been work arounds for Mac users who wish to accomplish a FileMaker and QuickBooks integration with the FMBOE plug-in (robot machine or Windows instance), it was important to us to provide our customers with a QuickBooks plug-in that was inherently compatible with the macOS.

The Mac compatibility is big news, and long overdue.  As is the 64 bit compatibility.  Get the full details here.

What is it with Samsung and explosions?

Here’s hoping my new Samsung TV doesn’t follow suit: 2.8 million Samsung washing machines recalled due to explosions

It seems that tolerance is in short supply these days:

The test of courage comes when we are in the minority. The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.
