Apparently, my comic strip Limpidity was nominated for Best Anthropomorphic Comic Book or Strip. Why does no one tell me these things? :) Of course, mine was one of a group of around forty nominees. Nevertheless it looks like a pretty respectable bunch of comic strips so it is an honor to have been considered.
Ahh... there's nothing like a strap of crisp sequential bills ready to enter into Where's George. :) And these happen to be series 2001 fives. Just beautiful.
So why are bills with sequential serial numbers good? For one thing, bill entry is fast. Most of the serial number doesn't change from one bill to the next so all you need to do to enter another bill is hit the Back button (or use the Back shortcut key) and change the last digit of the serial number. With a little practice, you could enter a strap of bills in just a few minutes.
The other advantage is crisp new bills will remain in circulation longer than your average bill that's halfway to the Fed's shredders. They'll get more hits.
The downside? There is zero chance of finding a Wild George in that strap.
Just went past a keycount of 900,000 over at Project Dolphin today. They are planning to reset all the keycounts when the next version of the client is ready so it'll be back to square one. Oh well. They claim the new client will be cheat proof so perhaps my rank will be a little higher. But the very notion that some people would cheat at a silly thing like this strikes me as funny.
And oh, I added some pictures and made some small changes to my AC 2002 con report.
