I have long been amazed that what I consider to be "basic data" can be so hard to come by. Ask your realtor for a time series of prices in a certain neighborhood, and they will look at you like you are from Mars. Why? Well because this is a good time to sell (insert vacacious reason of whim here) and this is a good time to buy (insert vacacious reason of whim here), so historical pricing makes no sense.

Try to get good data on the indices going back a hundred years....good luck.

Even getting commodity prices is a feat. Wish I still had access to the full on Bloomberg, but alas that is no more. Costs around $30,000 a year, I had it for free.

So here is the project. Search out and upload "Real Data Series" of all sorts, and post them as direct downloads on Hawaii Trading.

You got Data? Send it over, I will post it up. Knowledge can be freedom and power. Let's create freedom and power, for free.

First chart / Excel is by me (Courtesy of the Perth Mint). This chart data is down-loadable in Excel at Hawaii Trading. Within 2 months, my goal is to have 25 spreadsheets with valuable data, available for free.

The Excel format is sloppy, it took me 30 minutes to whip it into this shape as they had odd date formatting.

Marissa, unfortunately our wedding photographer did not do a very good job of taking photos of all of the handmade elements at my wedding, though I specifically asked him to. My in-law's offered to pay for the photos, and then they went and had a family friend do it, instead of the photographer I wanted. Oh well, I'm so over it. But here are a few pics I posted (more of people than things) on my anniversary:
