  • My dad found this website off a 20 he got once, and has been hooked, spending lots of time marking bills, and reading their message board. And he thinks I need new hobbies! :o)
    • Spend a few bucks and get a stamp. Makes stuff much easier. Also, sort out your bills by denomination, and then series, before entering. It makes it easier to use the not-very-friendly interface.


      • My dad does all that. He is number 19 of people who have entered bills. Lake Larry is his username on there.

        I've kicked around the idea of making a Perl/Tk interface to enter a large amount of serial numbers, etc. My dad used to get a bundle of 1's from the bank in order, and it would have been real easy to enter them all that way.

        Or at least make a new entry form that interacts with theirs entering them all for you.
        • #19, huh? I've only had 5 hits.

          I've thought of doing something like that, too, but not via tk. I'd just have a textfile like:

          20 1995 BT95203423J
          10 1995 A434092458M
          and then the program (using the yet-to-be-written WWW::WheresGeorge, of course) would submit 'em to the site. There's really no better tool for batch data entry than a plain text editor.

          Let me know if you're serious about doing it. We can prob'ly crank some code pretty quickly....



        • I've noticed that "Lake Larry" is no longer listed in the California Where's George listings. Has he moved to another state? I hope all is well with him. I enjoyed watching the dynamics of him and Ish Kabibble at the top of the Calif. rankings. -- Mike (San Jose, Calif.)
