                              6. ONSH1E:  surface needs to be cleaned {as using rubbing alcohol, cleaned, as from label/tape residue including ONSH0C} else cups will only hold ~1min

                            3. ONSGFC:  notable pros thru cons
                              1. ONSGFO:  despite peeling at edges from pulling, looks like it would last ~1 day of heavy use

                              1. ONSOU6:  low profile & barely noticeable
                              2. ONSOV2:  flat cord width must be below max else cord works out of clip :ONSOV2
                                1. ONSWZO:  if too wide, flat cord pushes on rounded point of hook then most any pull cord is near instantly able to work the cord over & out of the hook
                              3. ONSOTB:  takes some expertise to install
                            3. ONSWNN:  mounting angle 1 of:

                                2. ONSX0L:  max flat cord width per ONSOV2
                                  1. ONSOX1:  ‘{flat: {width 3mm, thick 1mm}} :ONSEWL’ works and is probably max width :ONSOX1
                                  2. ONSWFN:  ‘width: 8mm :ONSE2D’ slips out within seconds

                              1. ONSZ8B:  very solid hold –probably more than is necessary except for athletics

                              2. ONSZEI:  compared to  ‘2 ‘‘(Command) Decorating Clip’ :ONOVLJ’: 1 each top corner on back of device :ONSM9I’,
                                1. ONSZ8N:  notably more expensive and bulkier
                                2. ONSZ9C:  a little slower to connect & disconnect from cord
                        2. ONSZ78:

                1. ONT1ND:  best for {main purpose: identify & rate the person}, where every little bit helps :ONT1ND
                  1. ONT1Q0:  example: ~2004 US {Army {and other military}} converted uniforms from having rank on collar to on small-of-chest, which IMHO experience (of ~4 years of that in USAR), unfortunately notably slowed down soldier to solider greetings (which always requires calling out his rank else Sir/Maam for officer) as the greeter, to read the rank, now had had to {slowly & semi-rudely glance down} to look the greeted chest instead of just looking at his/her neck}
                2. ONT26V:  very close is not aesthetic especially to the wearer as one normally doesn’t want anything near his/her face except perhaps glasses.

                  2. M1ILT6: It looks like it will take several hours of work first time to do it right.
                    1. M1ILW4: –to do it scale-ably (so to quickly reprint the new names & new titles at each meetup, according to attendance and the name of the meetup series, all which changes/varies)
                  3. M1IKRN: I created an account
                  4. M1IKTQ: Methods I’m exploring:
                    1. M1IKUG: export the names & relevant fields from Google Contacts group then import into
                      1. M1IKVB:  I am assigning Google Contacts fields:
                        1. M1IKW2: “Nickname” for “Meetup user name”
                      2. M1IKX6: Seems “Nickname” is only exportable via google.cvs format, as “Additional Name”.
                      3. M1IKZK: google.cvs, even for small data, won’t import into as it gives a “busy” error.
                      4. To be continued
                    2. M1IQ6N: Embedded info method (enter the names & info directly on the labels)
