Halfbakery by Electronic Deposit

To reduce number of lost cheques

I don't know about you, but at least twice a year I have to contact [Jutta] and have a new royalty cheque cut due to them going missing in the post. This is a waste of [Jutta]'s time, and obviously incurs unnecessary expense for the HB.

My suggestion is simple; having received the royalty payments each month and done the necessary calculations, instead of sending a cheque and a per-idea breakdown in the post, the breakdown be sent by e-mail and the money deposited electronically direct to each halfbaker's bank account. This could be an opt-in system.

(Obviously if none of your ideas have been good enough to be commercially licensed by the [HB], this will mean nothing to you)

       You just reminded me to send out my Annotations Invoices. I really don't need all the extra money, but what can you do?

       Wake up, [vvv]. Time for your next shift. Clean the shovel when you've finished.

       It seems nobody has licensed any of our [emperor]'s ideas....

       I've found it more tax-efficient to receive share options.

       Oh, please, yes. Particularly if it helps keep track of the currency conversions.

       I just deposit all my premiums into my 201/2 IRA. I can't wait till I can retire and visit London and Australia on my prior earnings. Yay! Finally!

       Both please, one atop, one and a half, abottom. And thank you both.

       I opted for the deferred payment program.
As long as you only get up to go to the bathroom you get to keep an open tab.

D'oh! What gave it away? ;-)

       Well 2fry, going to the bathroom around here seems to be pretty lucrative. With all the seat, and paper ideas, it would seem some bakers never get off.
