    It is interesting. I always thought they were just randomly generated numbers.

  2. I also found that strangely interesting. (slightly worrying really!) I intend to impress my equally anorak friends. In fact, will probably drop mention of Luhn algorithm casually into conversation, as soon as I can work it in ! Thanks again Andii. Keep up the great posts. – Arran.
