  • Patch Lady – Seeing any issues with QuickBooks?

    Posted on September 5th, 2020 at 15:20 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    There’s not much detail here but I’m seeing some chatters about crashing on QuickBooks 2019 and 2020 on Windows 10 2004.  Lyle reached out to me and said “KB2267602 installs on Win 10 2004 and then will cause QB Enterprise 2019 & 2020 versions to crash when trying to run any report and if you try and open the check register nothing happens.”  (2267602 is a defender update)

    In one QuickBooks venue they recommended running the app as admin (ugh) and that was a workaround.  One of the symptoms was that QB check register wouldn’t open.

    Are you seeing issues with QuickBooks?  Let me know in the comment section if so.

  • IBM System/370 on a… Raspberry Pi

    @mainframed767 on Twitter just tweeted this:

    I have been running a full IBM System/370 Mainframe on a $20 Raspberry Pi Zero for ~5 months. Thousands of lines of COBOL and HLASM running flawless. Tested an entire bank’s mainframe COBOL on it.

    All he’s missing is the 029 card puncher and the console typewriter.
