Get a pad of "post it" notes in the color of your choice, borrow a mini
labs stack cutter and cut off everything but the sticky strip at the
top.  You will have a 1/4 inch strip that you can write on, doesn't
leave an adhesive residue, and will fit either on the strip of metal on
the back under the wind lever or on the bottom plate.  Beside basic film
stock you can also add notes about pushing/pulling and or subject matter
that can then be peeled off the camera and stuck on the film can.

Kyle, you can use 'Hello Kitty" pink if you like.

shoot TCN or Fuji Press 400? Rats - no way to know until I finish the

Any nifty ideas for remembering what film you have in your camera.
No wise-guy answers please. Llike a post-it on your forehead..

I have taken to taking a bit of the film's box and slipping it into the 
hotshoe - but it seems rather inelegant.
