This product is coming soon and is just for MDB coin changers/coin mechs right now.  But this cool new MEI product is the Cashflow Series 2000 VNR Vending Recycler.  It has a flashy front bezel with leds on it and can also use standard non-flashy bezels.  But the best feature is the bill recycler piece.  The recycler module holds up to 30 bills then will spit them out for change instead of a bill breaker.  Just think about having one of these in your entry unit and giving bills as change instead of change!

The Birmingham Water Works messed up on my bill and about 15,000 others.  But it was kind of shocking when you open the mail and the bill is $6,192 instead of around $100.  The billing date was 05-19-1920 and the due date was 06-02-1920.  This event made the news and the official said “it was a computer problem”.  Really?  I thought they were hand written.
