NFC? Did you like it and find it easy to "punch"? We were talking about it quite a bit earlier today...

Did I like it? No. I suspect if you're not used to SI it would seem like magic, but...
- it takes a long time (couple of seconds, maybe?) to register a punch
- it seemed like you had to get it in exactly the right place for it to do anything at all, and because you were just holding a against b it wasn't clear when you were doing this
- some stations had two boxes and they seemed to make different noises when you punched each of them; no idea what was going on there
- the finish consisted of a man literally grabbing your wrist to punch for you; when two people arrived at the same time they had no way of dealing with that
- check out the amount of 'no time's in the results...
