Your letters

16:52 UK time, Wednesday, 20 September 2006

I see the Royal Mail is now using internet technology to help send letters. Apparently it's going to be called "e-mail".

In reference to your article about 2D barcodes for letters - seeing as the first dimension is a fixed point in space, and the second dimension is a line - i.e. something that is seen to travel along an 'x' and 'y' axis, aren't old style bar codes also 'two dimensional' in that they are made up of several lines arranged side by side? Sorry but I get a bit pedantic on a Wednesday.

Craig, Sheffield

Stone Me!
(Punorama. Am I too late? Or is it thee?)
Tall Tone, Snowless Essex
MM note: Not too late, but sent via the letters form - so not eligible. We're being cruel to be kind.
