The Business::CreditCard perl module will let you enter the first portion
of a number and then generate a checksum for you, reading the source you
can even see what the first numbers should be to represent different issuers.
I usually just use 1234 1234 1234 1238, which is easy to remember and has
a valid checksum.

   though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits
   who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey
   twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.  -- Theodore Roosevelt
