    I imagine quite a few of of you guys 'n' gals use Internet Banking to keep upto date with your finances, but did you know that you can now use your home PC to actually withdraw money ?. I've been using this for a short while and its great...no more trips to the ATM to get cash when its raining, or its late, or you've had a few too many.

    To get this capability, you will need to logon to www.Pcatm4me.com and download the software. With the software, you will also receive a 172 page Useless manual in .pdf format (This requires Adobe 10 to read) and details on how to order the special Note Printer and PCI adapter. The printer ships with a bummer bundle of 400 sheets of the special ‘Pre-aged’ Note paper, in equal quantities of the four main colours used, to enable you to start printing your own funds.

    The printer is a direct replacement for your home computers CD drive. It uses the same power feed and connection cables that the CD drive used and can be installed in less than five minutes by any competent person with no specialist tools required. The PCI adapter (Plastic Card Insert) slots directly into your computers spare PCI slot. Note:, The PCI adapter will install a small sound file onto your pc’s sound card to mimic the noises you would expect to hear when using a conventional ‘hole in the wall’ ATM.

    The software, in a technological breakthrough will link directly to your home computers internal clock and will automatically adjust the brightness / contrast of your monitor to simulate bright sunlight glare that you will have already witnessed on your usual ATM.

    Additionally, the software comes with a screensaver that can be installed that accurately simulates the usual warning notices that ATM’s will show at the least convenient times such as ‘You have exceeded you limit for withdrawal’, ‘This ATM is offline, sorry for any convenience caused’, ‘Your card has not been recognised, please try a real ATM’.

    The distributors for Pcatm4me.com will also forward with your Note printer, a discount voucher entitling you to a 20 % discount off a new pair of glasses from any high street optician.

    If your funds are running low, you can order replacement Paper refills for the printer from Pcatm4me’s sister site, www.ibinduped.com at a retail cost equivalent to the amount ordered.

    Anybody else use this ?

    Cheers guys. Just a bit of daft fun:D

    Was thinking of doing one on Prescription windscreens for cars / trucks.....you know the sort of thing.... vari-focal, photochromatic windscreens with an option to upgrade to polarising. With the vari-focal, the bottom quarter of the windscreen is set to close up so you dont bump into the vehicle infront and the top three quarters is set to distance for normal driving.

    For those who cant get on with vari-focal then there wqould be an option to get bi-focal with a clearer boundary between near and distance.

    Hey, who knows, they could even extend to GA aircraft. How cool would that be to land at a field with to all intents and purposes, a set of mirror 'shades for a front windshield, that would match the shades the pilot wears !
