The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

16 December 2003

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.
