Re: The Badger

I have two of Tony's Badger wallets. While I am currently enjoying a few of his newer creations, the Badger is by far Tony's greatest wallet. LePaul feature, Mullica insert, special leather with a unique quality that makes using the Mullica feature a whole new and delightful experience. I have a gra...

Real Secrets Email

I just received an email from Real Secrets with a couple attachments.

Oddly the email is identical to one I received in August 2013 with the same attachments. Anyone else get this?

Thank you.

Mesika did not register "Loops" with the Copyright office. He did obtain a trademark for Loops. (As John Sigma mentioned above a few days ago). Here's a link to the trademark. http://www.trademarken.com/trademark/77978815?i=LOOPS-Yigal_Mesika And, yes, he does apparently go after folks who...

Re: Help Us!

OK, got my hot little hands on one of these and I must say that this is definitely one of Tony's best yet. The indexing system is unique among wallet indexes (indices for you grammar folks). I don’t know if Tony has revealed any of the other attributes of this wallet yet so I don’t want to steal his...

A little too loud - and no volume control. Otherwise pretty cool - if it works every time. (It was off on a few times for me).

Might do as well to teach it to the bullies. I am not an authority on bullying by any means but I would think that those kids need counseling as much as the bullied kids - if not more so.

Thanks for the great review Tom.

I have this on order and can't wait to receive it. BTW, I love your description of the envelope in your last post! (Though I must admit you sent me to the dictionary with "simulacrum"; had me thinking baby formula at first!)

Re: Latest Real Secrets

stereo, the fact that you are surprised tells me that perhaps you didn't understand.

Apparently a lot of subscribers felt differently than you, as evidenced by this latest change. When the minority cries out that it is everyone else who doesn’t understand.... :D

John Carney uses Revizzit for his online lessons and for that it works great; at least for me. I suppose it would work for me for RS if (big IF) I were allowed to download all of the material.

Re: Making Invisible Deck Visible

I use a Devil's Hank pre-loaded with the ID. Have the spectator drop the imaginary invisible deck into it and a few moments later I take out the ID. I have a few hanks and some are nice for this: fairly heavy and patterned so the deck is well-hidden.
