1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Don't trust banks. Hide cash in your socks.

    Matt, I'd suggest a slim card only wallet and a money clip. Use an old vintage tie clip.

    Always carry your Medicare card and your private health card (if you have one). You never know when you will need them should something go wrong.

    Not a big fan of the money clip idea, especially if you're carrying a Myki. It will no doubt give Other Card Detected errors and drive you mad taking it in and out of the clip. The clip probably won't do much for the condition of your cards either. I third Blah and Ernesto on the leather card holder idea.

    Matt, it's almost possible these days to do without cards and cash and use just your phone. I'd be curious to see how close anyone here has got to this?

    My other clothing problems are where to carry phone when no jacket. I carry phone in inside breast pocket. I can't stand it in trouser pockets. And how to carry bulky car keys if I don't have a briefcase. If it's casual I clip them to my belt roadie style.

    Well most places with card terminals now have nfc payments. I have enabled my phone's nfc to be used to tap on the machine to pay. I tried once at 7elevenand it worked wonderfully. There are certain apps also available where you can scan your loyalty cards to the app. With Medicare, I think they also have an app for you so you don't need to take the card around with you anymore either. With or without the app, most medical facilities should be able to retrieve your medical details anyway without your card. And it's not like hospitals will turn you away in an emergency over here in Australia.

    The problem with not having cash is, of course, you'll miss out on all the awesome dirty Asian places you could enjoy your lunch at if you have some cash on you .

    You'd still need to carry your drivers license at least though, so you have a form of ID on you.

    Re: no jacket. Stuff them down your jocks. simples.

    I have absolutely no room in my jocks. Too much hardware there already.

    Near-field chip embedded in my head. Had it for years. Always turns traffic lights orange as I get within 100m of them and puts ATMs out of order when it's my turn to use them. Also seems to attract nutters to sit next to me on public transport like a magnet, even when train/bus is empty.

    Have you tried a tin-foil hat?

    It probably won't help with avoiding the nutters (it may even have the opposite effect), but it could help with the ATMs and traffic lights.

    On wallets, picked an alligator skin card holder up today from Brooks Brothers. $72. I'll use it as a wallet. most I have ever spent on a wallet, but I needed a new one. It's very nice. Shitty pic below.

    Also got a pair of chukkas in sand suede, by Peal & Co. $122. Pretty good!

    I got some Collonil suede protector in a spray can from either Hallelujah Shoe Repairs, which are downstairs in the Wintergarden food court, or from the shoe section at DJs, I can't remember which.
