OMG your are right, 5710 = 1117 -- the main problem is that there's no way I could explain this to my wife LOL

I know it's wrong to focus on material "things" -- but there's a certain "something" about having something that is made well and engineered to last. Apart from anything else, how often does anyone come up to you and say "wow, that's a nice iPad case -- where did you get that?"


Or what about the time the airport security were convinced my belt contained contraband because it was the most robust belt they had ever seen (click here to see that blog

That's what it says on the site, although I'm not sure how they do it (I'll have to look inside more closely)

My RFID proof wallet stopped working -- the metalization on the fabric all wore off-- am thinking the best for that are the hard aluminum clamshell type cardholders -- or fall back on cash

Eleventy-one

Eleventy-one has a nice ring to it.....most will have heard it in LOTR:

"Bilbo was going to be eleventy-one, 111, a rather curious number, and a respectable age for a hobbit, (the old Took, himself, had only reached 130)"

@#$%^& Cards

Max, does it have enough card slots?   Here in Australia every second store gives you a loyalty card, every coffee shop gives you a "1 coffee free for N bought" card, and then there are medicare cards, bank cards, driving licence, etc.

The cards end up taking more space than the money......

ASCII chart / S-100 bus

For a couple of decades I carried around a handy little plastic card from Technical Design Labs, Inc with an ASCII chart on one side and the S-100 bus pinout on the other.  Very handy for establishing geek credentials :-)

57 is so young

I, too, turned 57 this year.  I am so pleased that it's not a prime number - I hate those years.  This year I am taking my third short at being 19.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
