@Melonlity -- it's too bad we don't see more of these. Passbooks helped people be more disciplined with their money. Computer balances are accurate, sure, but they just don't feel as "real" as a little book that is meticulously kept.
Computer balances, see, are just numbers, whereas it took some effort to keep up with and read a passbook.
I could be wrong, of course, but perhaps more effort needs to go into accounting and keeping up with money. Keeping track of a passbook required some discipline and we could use more of that.
