I'm not sure how TS2ki stored data but it was never a cpu issue. The Global server also had the option of doing an immediate "Nightly Maintenance" whenever you wanted to, I believe that stored any data still in memory, immediately.
It sounds like you have a good solution in the gold release.

I run about 15 pages of charts, with about 4 charts/page and probably 6 indicators/chart. the quad core really helps, especially the .45nm CPU, they run ve...

I've seen that happen on Ver 5.2 as well. It seems to be occasionally and not every time.

After doing an upgrade, you have to re-verify all studies. I usually just open the power editor by itself, after the upgrade and do a "verify all". Then open MC.

Is ver 5.3 still coming out in Jan ?

I think Marina mentioned that Ver 5.3 would be out by the end of the month. Tomorrow is the end of the month.

What version are you using ?

I don't think you can import xpo data.
IB has historical back-fill for about 1 year. If you need more, if you can get it ascii format, you can import that into MC.
