Summary : A review of the United States Postal Service discusses numerous mail-related issues. What is the heaviest thing that you can send in a flat rate box? What happens if you mail a sphere? What are the mysteries of digital postage meters? A look at how modern automation allows you to send a letter 3000 miles for only 42 cents and what security vulnerabilities might exist in that infrastructure.
