    Nice story BUT, whats the point, this is only going to track the coin which any number of people could use in a day. Is that kind of technology even available?

    When I read that sentence I immediately thought about something Nexxo said:

    Magicians have been using this trick forever. Tell the audience what to believe, and they'll think you can produce pidgeons from your sleeve.

    edit: Whoa, never even noticed that I hit 1,000. Thanks, Cthippo!

    Interesting point. Maybe it's a proof of concept bug. I'm imagining this is someone putting a RFID tag in a coin, though of course why is unanswered.

    Congrats on 1k posts, Monkey :thumb:

    Has this Canadia place got any oil? And ain't they got a nucular energy program? Seems like a build-up to a regime change IMHO. :eeek:

    Yup. Can we spell "P A R A N O I A"?
