Disc Brake Adjustment: Thank You!!!

I just wanted to say thank you to the person who posted about using two playing cards when adjusting disc brakes. This has got to be the easiest way to center the rotor in the calipers and it only takes about 30 seconds to do (literally). You have made my day and lowered my blood pressure. Again, Thank You!!!!!

Wouldn't you need to have one thin and one thick card? The BB7 instructions direct you to have the inner pad further away from the rotor than the outer one.
On the other hand, the brakes will work well either way.
