How to Pay (Re: US$ drawn on a US bank)

One way around all this mess is to mail cash.  Yes, I know everyone says not to
do it, but when was the last time your mail got lost?  If USENIX won't take
cash ("This note is legal tender for all debts public and private"
notwithstanding) mail it to a (trustworthy) friend in the US and ask her/him to
write a check.  (I have had friends from the UK write me cheques on their
British accounts to pay for hotel reservations in Scotland.)

Or, if your friend trusts you, and you'll both be at Usenix, have them write
the check now and *hand* them the cash later.
