It's acting like I'm not registered even though the setup says I am. So I get ads all the time, I get only 2 days of intra-day with no backfill, and I only get 6 months of historical. I haven't used if for probably a few months. The last time I used it was while helping QT solve a bug, and while in the process they asked me to re-install the program. Everything was still screwed up after the re-install, but we finally traced the problem to TDA. Everything worked fine after TDA fixed the bug on their end, then that was the last time I used it. I sent a bug report to QT this afternoon, so I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens. When I go to their site and click on some things related to TDA, nothing happens or the computer takes me to a blank page. Also, while working on the bug a few months ago, the QT person told me that they were going to quit supporting the program. I have used Think or Swim (TOS). I don't like it all that much, but my needs are a lot different than most folks. I live way out in the boonies, so I'm on satellite. TOS is an online program. I hate those kinds of programs because it means I can't run it offline. Because of the distance to the satellite there is a 250-ms round-trip delay for every request which makes loading the program rather slow, and which also puts me out of business when the satellite is hijacked by Dish Networks when they decide to play with the internet loop in the late evening, which they seem to like to do at the most inconvenient time for night owls like me. The satellite is also subject to weather related blackouts. They don't happen very often, but when they do I wont be able to use TOS. TOS also does way more than I would ever use, so that tends to complicate using it because of all the things that clutter the program up.
