Re: RAF Memories

best was a compass corrector key.
!! Not too long ago had to "swing" a little bubble compass in a microlight, had to make my own adjustment screwdriver out of a bit of brass rod.

Re: Royal Bank of Wankers

Just been advised by Natuseless that they are starting to use OTP codes to a mobile phone, this despite the fact that I already use their 'card reader' for transfer of money out of the bank, in my case to my N.Z. bank.

Currently in California, 1 cent coins still in use ( surprising how many one finds lying around the streets, too ) - and when paying for small items with cash, like a chocolate bar or ice cream as one does, then one is always 1 cent short, so have to break another dollar bill and end up with a pocke...
