I have a widget on my desktop that shows the USCAN currency exchange.

Just a few minutes ago I caught it out of the corner of my eye:


Since we don’t have a one-hundredth of a penny coin it might as well be even.

I had a friend yesterday remark that for the first time ever they deposited a US check and ended up with LESS money in their account after it was converted into Canadian $.

Interesting (but painful for those who sell to the states) times.

UPDATE: It appears we’ve officially done it now.
