    @blowdart: I actually had that thought today looking at the heading... maybe we'll sneak it in, we'd need to map based on the browser 'accept-language' though... and I'm not sure how accurate that would be. (I'm not a fan of doing much with geo-ip sniffing, seems a bit wrong)

    It'd be funny. It's strange, I still browse with EN-GB as my first selection, so I get bounced to UK search engines.

    Noo noo, let's focus on the actual amount instead: what if I want to add just 1/10th of a cent or even a whole dollar, but noo, I have to add exactly 2 cent! Wink

    Blowdart, how very britanicentric. Not only Americans use cents, you know. Us mighty Europeans also use cents, as did us mighty Belgians before we switched to euro.

    Hey what about this as a way to stay out of the monetary morrass

    Add your 2 bits.

    or add your 00000010 bits.

    perhaps even vary that on different days at random

    Add 0.0200 decimal , or some value of "2" in different bases like

    Hex, Octal, Decimal etc....

    just an idea...

    @figuerres: 2 is only not 2 in binary...  sounds boring.

    Decimal:  Put in your 2 bits

    Base 3: Put in your 2 bits

    Hexadecimal: Put in your 2 bits

    Base 3452873598729: Put in your 2 bits

    Only the Continental Europeans.

    Being British I still prefer using Pounds Stirling, or if the occasion warrants it Gold, for the exchange of goods and services. None of that foreign Monopoly money
