Ugly money.

I was talking to someone in Germany who was mentioning that he was upgrading his university's accounting software to use Euros instead of Deutschmarks, and what a pain in the ass it was; I hadn't realized that the EC countries were gonna start forcibly using the Euro in under a month.

The new bills and coins are just dull, though; they've removed any character from the currency whatsoever. No more works of modern art on the Dutch Guilder - just dull all over. Sigh.
