    Default Micro or nano?

    I think of micros as being about the size of a 35mm film container, and nanos as the sort of size that screw-up name holders for dog collars are.

    I've got a plastic container that I'll be using soon, and it's between the two. I'm not sure how to describe it, and I'd be interested to hear people's opinions.

    It's a cylindrical plastic container with a screw top, and measures about 1.8 inches (4.5 cm) tall and 0.7 inches (1.8 cm) in diameter.

    It's hellspawn, and shouldn't be allowed.....

    Really though - it has to be a micro - that's the smallest size listed on GC.com (unless you're going to list it elsewhere...?)

    Sorry, but this is for a particular spot, for a particular reason, and anything bigger just isn't possible, I'm afraid.

    As it happens, I am going to list it elsewhere - I'm not abandoning GC though, just diversifying a bit.

    We're trying to bring more users of TC and NC into the Association, and I started to feel that I should put my cache where my mouth is.

    If it contains a pencil it's a micro, if it's too small for one it's a nano.

    Ah, now that's an excellent criterion! This one will contain an, albeit tiny, pencil, so it's a micro!

    That strikes me as a workable definition.
