We have a potential requirement to produce a limited number of embossed PVC
cards with magnetic encoding for an internal project.  We are considering
obtaining a read/write device (likely USB) suitable for encoding HICO magnetic
stripes.  Has anyone here any experience with suitable hardware and software
that runs on CentOS-6?  If so then what was used and what problems were
encountered getting things to work?
