Would that member be Olivier?

One post (in spanish) of a blog I used to read wondered about the life of a 20€ note. The author is a taxi driver that had just received it from a german tourist at the airport. At the bottom he says "In the upper right corner of that german note I wrote an @ sign. I used it to buy [a book]. If you ever find that note, tell me where, and what you bought with it".

Among the comments to that post, one of them had the link to EBT. I registered from work, and asked a coworker if he had any note, since I didn't at that moment. I don't need to look at the stats to remember it was a :note-10: :).

I tried a few times but I have no connection to wheresgeorge.com. Anyone else with this problem, or am I doing something wrong?

Last day of 2014, when in Lithuania was last day of national currency (litas), I read news in news website (http://www.delfi.lt). Here I find information about this website.

On January 1st, 2009 I was looking for information about the Slovak euro coins that were introduced that day, and I read about EBT on the Euro entry in Wikipedia. I registered and entered all the notes that I could find in my house, thinking that I was in high risk of getting hooked in one another currency-related vice... and so I was. Now I think of all the euro countries that I visited between 2002 and 2008 and wish that I had known about the site before.

Yes, that feeling when you have missed chance to enter notes from foreign countries or cities might feel bad. :oops: Probably many EBTers feel the same. But on the other hand, you have many chances coming in the future :D In my opinion, it's very nice that you enter notes from your quite exotic (seems to be, at least because it's located where it is) Spanish hometown 8)

Thank you! It's not easy to keep tracking when you're the only user in a town with no hits ever, and your hit ratio is 1/1722 :roll: Sometimes I wish I was in Finland, except for the weather :P Greetings from Africa ;)
