    Hi Ethan. Great episode. When do you think you're going to be putting out a screencast on Treasury Direct? I went over to the site and it is definitely a bit cumbersome. That being said, keep up the good work.

  • Governments have a tendency to make things more complicated then they need to be, imagine that!

    Hopefully we'll get some screencasts out before the end of the year. The hold up has been that I don't have any experience with them and I'm still playing with the technology. So stay tuned.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers.

    Ethan
