Raw data

Gathering data for taxes, I look online to find some records from April 2005: data isn't available that far back using the "History" tool of my credit union's website.

So I call the bank and ask if they can access it from there, explaining I couldn't get it online. Their answer? Oh, go to another section of the site and they have my statements dating back for 12-18 months, in PDF form. I love it! They can't get the raw data in the database, but they have honkin' PDFs laying around for everybody. So it's kinda offensive, but I understand why. (databases/database storage vs. bulk storage.....)

Anyway, neat. Also means I don't have to keep scanning all these statements, since I can get them online.
