That is what I use in my own house ruled version of RQ6. There I use any successful roll ending in a 1 is a crit. RQ6 has crits at 10% of skill so rounded up so 01 is always a crit and 02-05 is always a success. Of course the problem always is, what happens with skills over 100? Some versions of BRP treat skills over 100 as close to the norm for your best skills. 

BTW I also use "last digit 0 and failure = fumble." This means 00 is always a fumble. Makes fumbles more common at lower skills.

Finally, I used to use doubles but they tend to down play criticals and over-emphasise fumbles because you end up with both 99 and 00 being auto-fumbles.

This is a rather melodic take down.

Sharing this mostly because I didn't know David Brin had a blog.
Tensions even outright fights about legroom and cattle-car treatment on airlines have reached a point any sensible person would have predicted. (I did.) What to do? Picket the carriers? Any (metaphorical) torch and pitchfork mobs should head instead for the charter and corporate jets, which are obscenely subsidized, instead of taxed as luxuries.

Chase the rich back onto First Class, where they belong!  And with only twice our comforts and legroom… okay, limit it to (tops) 3x. 
All forms of transportation degrade and collapse, when they are abandoned by the rich.  Let em be rich! But they should fly with us. Then watch air travel get better again.

(This is what the Tea Party would be railing about if it were honest populism, instead of howling after the Export Import Bank, at the command of the Koch Brothers.)  http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-legroom-fights-20140903-story.html#page=1

PS My current posting… slamming Frank Miller’s latest movies…is getting real attention.  Enjoy.
