Subject: Re: And yet another use of SignWriting
I have to give a short answer to Valerie's question:
Yes, I do really have my pin codes etc. written in sw on on nice
little card put where the photos etc. usually go. I have the sign for
what it's for first, and the the numbers, and as there are eight
different codes on the list, and the Norwegian SL numbering system
is not altogether obvious, I feel safe this way. I even often show it
off ot the gas station manager or whomever, and say "I have it right
here, but you cannot read it, can you?!". So I get some fun out of
it. But of course, our aim is that this way of writng SLs, and the
knoledge of the Sls themselves, shall be so widespread that this is
no longer safe.
