to my defense... I collect rare coins ;-) When I was a kid I could lend 100 SEK from my parents, go to the back with it and have it change into 1 SEK coins. I sat by the table and sorted out the old coins. I took the remaining 1 SEK coins, could be like 98 and changed into 50 öre (cent).
- went through 196 coins, found a few
- exchanged into 25 öre, went through 380 coins, found a few
- exchanged into 10 öre and went through 940 coins, found a few
- exchanged into 5 öre and went through 1860 coins, found a few
- exchanged back to bills and returned about 90% of what I had lended in the first place.

....and I saved a few stamps aswell, never was a real collector though unsure.gif


WOW! That's some dedication! blink.gif I mean REALLY! I would have never had that kind of persistence( if thats the word) when I was a kid... on anything!

Yeah, you fooled me until the stamp paragraph...

I actually read the first paragraph without seeing who wrote the post, and then look left, and thought Whatta??? Wallimann?

Man, I can't get enough of your Gilmour's classes (and also the Hendrix one is really nice). wink.gif

Happy April fools everyone


Well before anyone thinks that i was going into partnership with David selling stamps and onions - i kind of left a hidden message in my first post to this thread. If you highlight the centre of my qoute you can see it wink.gif


Though i do like onions- i dont think they'll be replacing my axe...
