Loki, that is the best way to go. It is the most secure, and
relatively cheap. And they track those packages, so you don't have to
worry as much about lost shipments.

Also, they don't take many moons to arrive either. Generally 4-5 days
in the continental US.

For a second choice, I would say UPS Orange (3-day) is a good route,
too. About 5-6 dollars for less than one pound, guaranteed three day
delivery, and you have to sign for it. Another nice thing is if you
trade for cash, you can send COD with them, I believe.



These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
