How to quickly show your badge at the gate - May 22, 2009, 08:24 AM

A lot of people in the DC area work on a military base or use RF ID cards to get into parking decks. What are some of the easiest ways to keep those cards handy and get through those gates quickly?

In the past I kept my parking deck card in my pocket. I would have to stop at the gate, slip into neutral, remove glove, open pocket, pull out card, swipe card, replace in pocket, put glove back on, then in gear, etc... This was my best solution until now.

Now I have to badge through TWO gates, one of whom insists upon handling my card. Doing this properly requires a little equipment.

First, you need one of those retractable ID tethers. You also need a hard plastic two-card holder that lets you slide cards out easily. I keep my office key on this lanyard and I wear it all day. This one easy system works well on the bike.

Zip up your jacket, but pull JUST the card-holder out of your collar. Leave the retractable base inside your jacket. This will hold the ID in place at your chest (it might blow around a little, but not much).
If you only must show ID, then you don't even have to put the bike in neutral to get through the gate.
For RF ID, grab plastic card-holder, extend RF card to sensor, and let retractable cord pull it back into place on your chest. Gloves stay on.
Finally, for those guards who insist on fondling your ID cards, you can remove those cards with your gloves on using the holes in the plastic holder. The extension cord gives you room to move, which helps with limited dexterity when you put the card back into its holder.

I figured I could put a velcro tab on the plastic if the wind blew the card holder too much, but I haven't found that to be a problem with my winter jacket.

At Ft B during the winter my winter gloves had a little ID holder pocket with Velcro, very handy, during warmer months, I would at a light before the gate pull out my badge, and slip it under the strap on my gloves, worked well.

I knew of a few people that Velcroed a badge holder inside their fairings for easy access.

I have one of the retractable holders now, and left it on for one ride home. Never again. I dont trust that little string for one, and while on the exit ramp I was cranked over, the badge caught the wind and during the turn it was smacking my boys and back door. Not what Im looking for.

I did something like this until my badges flew off on the outerloop somewhere. Now I just roll with a lanyard tucked in my jacket.

I have a server which installed the PSlistener
and now I have 2 workstation connect to the server
but I want to give different username and password for them to connect PSlistener
How can I do?

Quite easily. There is a new intrument that will not only provide inverse reactive current, for use in unilateral phase detractor, but is also capable of automatically synchronizing the cardinal grammeters. Basically, instead of the power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes it produced by the modial interaction of magneto reluctance and capcitive duractance.

You will notice that the system consists simply of six hydrocopic marzel vanes so fitted to the ambiphasient lunar wang shaft. Every seventh conductor is connected by a non-reversable tremi pipe to the differential gurdel spring on the up end of the grammeters.

You will want to connect the large end of the drawn reciperocation dingle arm to the workstation. The smaller end will connect to the server via the base plate of prefamulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two sperving bearings run a direct line with the panametric fan.

I hope that this clears the process up. If you have anymore questions please don't hesitate to ask.
