From the Silver Lining Department
About seven months ago, I complained that check printers now give you 150 to the box instead of the formerly-canonical 200, and at pretty much the same price too.
I have since found some tiny upside to this, um, resizing: it now takes about twenty-five percent less time to shred a box of checks to be discarded. Given the limitations of my shredder it would take weeks to dispose of Steve Buscemi with this cheap contraption this is a noticeable difference.
