Nothing lost in translation after all

This week, a Quicken user in Cornwall ran into frustration trying to restore his Quicken 2004 files after a brief, unsatisfactory experiment with Quicken 2010.

A Quicken user in Boston offered advice. Although the Cornish user worried that the Boston user had misread his original post, he tried the Bostonian’s suggestion, which worked — like a charm, he said, an expression understood perfectly on both sides of the pond. You can see the problem and solution using this link.
