There are some web tools where you always thought they would have been useful and this is one: Post Box Finder. Even these days there will be plenty of occasions when you might want to chuck something in the post and are desperate to find where your nearest post box is and the collection times.

I am a great fan of the people at web effectiveness experts Bowen Craggs, and really look forward to their articles which, amongst other things, describe the good, bad and the indifferent web activities of notable companies. A recent newsletter of theirs was about athenticity and honesty in marketing, and how plain speaking and truthfulness on corporate websites can help generate trust and credibility. By the way, their articles are plain english and easy to digest.
