Re: Beta Testing Siamond

Good thoughts. It's easy enough to add an "X" for closing instead of the button. As for the form inputs. I could very easily make a collapsible box that has all of the form inputs in it, each section also being collapsible so that it doesn't take much space up. There's no need to save the ...

Re: API request

Sounds extremely intricate and personalized... I like it :)

Congrats on being FIRE. Though I love all of the talk of FIRE, and calculating it's position in my life, I'm still a number of years off. Ha!

Re: API request

Just out of curiosity, how were you using your web scraping script before? What sort of outputs were you measuring? Like a monthly report based on your mint.com account or something?

Re: API request

I would love to do this, but it's low on my priority list. Here's why: There are a LOT of variables on the form page. And, many of them are dynamic. For instance, by default the form shows 2 pensions, but you can go up to 10. To encode all of that information into GET parameters, would probably end ...

Re: CPI Assumptions Spending Plan

By default, the CPI is the historical values from year to year. So far, I haven't implemented a way to manually change the CPI (which really only matters for spending and the "inflation-adjusted" final numbers). Do you typically put a specific inflation rate in because you believe that the...

Re: Differences between old and new

There are a few slight differences between the old and new, but that average ending portfolio difference seems large. The biggest difference is how spending is taken out. In the old cFIREsim for any given year, here is how things are calculated: - Jan 1 - Portfolio $X - Dec 31st - Portfolio $X + Mar...

Re: Beta Testing Siamond

I always thought that the "starting year" notation in the previous version was more confusing, and actually have received a few comments to support that in the past. I think an "overall data range" is less confusing. We'll see. If enough people complain, it's an easy change.

Re: Beta Testing Siamond

BUG/REQUEST: I don't quite understand those constraints: "Start Year must be less than End Year. End Year must be less than current year. Total span of years must be > simulation period." Why not allow the end year to be equal to the start year? Why not allow an arbitrary range of years? ...
