Just curious...why didn't you program it to store the history, then every week, add only the past week's history? Too much disk space or something?

The problem is maintenance. Stocks change symbols, have splits, get acquired, etc. If I kept the full history I would have to track all those events and correct for them. It is a whole lot easier to download the full history each week.
