Two More Pennies For Your Letters

Did anybody know that the postal rates were going up again? This is he first I've heard of it.

Starting Sunday, first-class postage will now be 39 cents, with postcards and additional ounces going up to 24 cents.

I remember, when I was a kid, reading in my mom's 1965 World Book Encyclopedias that letter post was only four cents. Oh, for the simpler times of yesteryear.

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
