Minor bugs - FIRECalc 3

Bill, looks to me like at least two points of data are not retained upon saving a session: one is the 'inflation adj" checkbox on the Other income tab, and also the data in the custom spending model piece.

You may not have intended to save the latter, but if a user is running a series of "what-ifs" it really is somewhat inconvenient to have to re-enter that information each time. Thanks.

The former is a bug -- the latter is a "haven't gotten there yet"


Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain

Minor nit: "For our purposes, failure means the portfolio was depleted before the end of the 30 years."

You issue this message even when I specify a non-zero minimum threshold for failure. And you also seem to continue depleting my portfolio even when I ask you to stop. I assume the only thing this parameter changes is the success rate.
