HOWTO kill/block an RFID – Boing Boing

-The easiest way to kill an RFID, and be sure that it is dead, is to throw it in the microwave for 5 seconds. Doing this will literally melt the chip and antenna making it impossible for the chip to ever be read again. Unfortunately this method has a certain fire risk associated with it. Killing an RFID chip this way will also leave visible evidence that it has been tampered with, making it an unsuitable method for killing the RFID tag in passports. Doing this to a credit card will probably also screw with the magnetic strip on the back making it un-swipeable.

Trying out ScribeFire as a writing tool for posting to WordPress. It does some things fine and others a bit different. Will have to get used to it, for sure. Time will tell. Now to see how it publishes.
