I am amazed checks is still being in use. They are virtually gone here
since many, many years. I have never had a check-book and don't see why
I ever would need one.
I receive checks from the US for smaller sums. Usually not worth the
effort to get the money.
The one check I will *NEVER* cash in is the one from Don Knuth, for 2.56
USD. I have the frame, I just forgot to frame it.
