Nice idea, but I think it would be hard to find types of card that a
reasonable number of new signups would possess. Also, I believe
frosty is fairly well geared up (when he obtains a PS2/USB
adapter :P) to record RFID numbers from people along with their
autosignup ID at Freshers'/Compsci Registration.
With only one RFID reader it won't be possible to gather this for
*everyone* upon signup, but certainly a decent majority. Others will
hopefully be able to get their cards registered in the room without
too much effort...
Life with the magstriped student cards was so much easier :-(
