Re: @#$%^& Cards

@David: Max, does it have enough card slots?   Here in Australia every second store gives you a loyalty card, every coffee shop gives you...

In addition to the driving license slot there are four card slots, each of which is supposed to hold 3 cards (at first 2 cards per slot is a bit tight, but the leather stretches to accomodate them over time.

I just keep my main cards in those slots. I use the inner pouch (which I think is supposed to be for change) to keep the ones I don't use often, like my health insurance and gift cards and suchlike.

I really like the fact that there's a big slot at the back for my checkbook and "ledger" -- plus another big slot in front of that for odd pieces of paper with notes and stuff.

I LOVE it!!!

That's what we need a wallet with Bluetooth - "everthing is better with Bluetooth".... sorry Max :-)  My wife has been bugging me to get a new one as mine is a bit "dog eared" and that phrase jumped into my head.. oh well.... gotta start work :-(

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.

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 :-)

@#$%^& 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......

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)"

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

@MS243: does it block RFID so your cards don't get cloned?

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)
