This is June, so this is NOT an April Fool’s gag. Honest.
They didn’t have to really do much to offer this service. They already scan all the mail as a part of their first-cut, automated sorting system. They use state-of-the-art OCR (optical character recognition) to pick-out the zip-code. So, extending that to read the rest of the address was not too difficult.
It could be a GREAT help. For a start you can see IF the check is indeed in the mail — way ahead of the mail being delivered.
I like it — THOUGH alas it is not available in my zip though it is SUPPOSED to be! As ever my loss and the price I pay for living in the stick.
But, check it out. Sign-up for it. It will be handy.

Remember. Reflect. Rejoice!
Listen to THIS.
BBC’s 1st broadcast of THE NEWS on D-Day.
Amazing that we don’t commemorate this day with more gusto, pomp and ceremony.
If NOT for the Allied heroics of this day we will NOT be speaking English.

Just into the 5th day and have already lost 2 matches to rain!
That is a 40% of the matches.
That is crazy, and unfair.
Given that rain is a given in England in June, they should have allocated 2-days per match.
The two ‘no results’ matches have given an unfair, undeserved edge to Bangladesh. They haven’t played well and should not be in any contention for a quarter-final match.
