   Wow, really?  Someone advocating the use of checks, the least-secure 
payment method ever devised?  They're on their way out, thank heaven. 
Many UK banks are checkless now, according to my UK friends.  I'm 
guessing the USA will finally be devoid of checks entirely within the 
next 10-15 yearse.  Many stores don't take them anymore  I got sick of 
being burned by rubber checks years ago; I haven't taken a check since 
the late 1990s.  Many stores don't take them.  I've not actually written 
one, for any reason, in probably eight years.

   I feel like someone just voiced curiosity as to why their new 
Core2Duo laptop doesn't have core memory.
