1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    $400 to a few grand is a lot, too much to spend for a money clip in my opinion. I carry a coach magnetic money clip, but I imagine you wouldn't care for that. I think there is nothing more classic than a Tiffany and Co. sterling silver money clip. One of these days I'm going to get around to ordering one.

    I used to use a magnetic money clip, but if I stuck a BART ticket in it or a credit card, that would be the end of the magnetic stripe.

    Put your notes in your pocket of pants, you could have the pleasure of touching them all the day.

    I've used a silver clip from Tiffany's, but found that silver wasn't really resilient enough, i.e., it deformed from too many bills. I was thinking about getting a silver paperclip to replace it, as I think it would last longer.

    Please be careful, -5pace.pirat3]+.  On December 11, 2004, in the early evening my solid gold money clip was dropped somewhere on Madison Avenue.  So great is my disgust with myself I cannot allow me to have another. [​IMG]

    I've been able to forgive myself and have replaced with like, over the past 7-8 years, a Brigg umbrella and a silver Dupont lighter. Perhaps 3 1/2 months is sufficiently long for penance or, if superstitious, the object brought you good fortune (except, of course, for losing it). [​IMG]

    I bought a fossil magnetic clip (leather) with card wallet attached to it.

    The magnetic clips are good for 0-10 bills. The "clip" clips are good for 5-20 bills. I also really like the card wallet -- it's handy for drivers license, credit card, etc.

    I think money clips are a good way to force you to keep your wallet organized.

    about $100-175(+8/25 for machine/hand monogram) or around $1000 for a gold one, says their website
    i'm considering a versace sterling, the one i have now is steel and it doesn't have open/magnet mechanism, and now you can see in the middle where there's strain from a few too many bills/cards [​IMG] not to mention alot of little scratches and dents

    Did you really just resurrect a 4 year old thread to shill for your product? At least be subtle about it.
