If he's NatWest then he'll of got fuck all.

Mondex  Smiley  Well I remember, I was part of the trial project....good fun. The company doing the research, paid a number of people to trial Mondex...we got tea and cakes, as well as paid, in the Goddards every so often where we gave feed back, using record sheets of our spending. They gave us cash on the card and we just had to spend it...they then decided they needed more info so gave us another wodge of cash to spend....all in all got a useful sum for basically doing fuck all, never a bad thing.

I remember the trial went really well, and then they said, "brilliant, so we'll charge you 12 a month to have one" or something and everyone just stopped using it immediately.

I also remember that the Mondex trial was the first time I heard the fact that Swindon is the most 'demographically average' town in the UK, which is why it gets used for lots of product trials.

Yeah the last bit is true apparently, well at least was; the Mondex trial was prob mid 90's so a while ago.

I can't really remember why it never happened, other than a vague memory of debit cards and readers etc, improving so they essentially did the same job.

Need to get Mondex up and running again. Maybe get Steve Murral to have it as his project. Anyone still got a card?

I had a housemate in Westlea in the mid 1990s called Mondex Mark.  He had a card.  True story.

Yeah, they could call it MyMondex and it accidentally rings everything through three times and the bloke in the club shop has to spend his life doing manual refunds because no-one ever did any user testing.

Let's do a 'where is he now?' on Mondex Mark'. Seems silly not to.

But how the hell are we going to survive without selling players? Our crowds are pretty poor, we have fuck all revenue streams. If Power continues to fund the shortfall then surely we're just gonna end up back where we were in January?

Get to Wembley in the JPT...for all its lack of appeal, it could be a saviour...
