Does anyone else miss Fico04?

I gained a few points when EQ transitioned to 08 on here, but I miss the consistency that I got with v04. 

 

What ever happened to 'Don't fix anything that isn't broken?' 

 

Nevermind, if they got it right the first time then someone would be out of a job :smileyvery-happy:

Haha, do you have old collections or collections under $100? Those seem to be the main selling points. I still miss v04 though.

I miss it dearly. I've got enough credit cards already; I'd rather keep track of my mortgage score.
