Can you not change your address through USPS for free???  They used to give out the packages with the form and coupons for mailing companies. When I went to the post office, they only had post cards telling you to go to the website and enter your CC number. I haven't had to pay before-- is this new?? Or is it a dummy charge like iTunes, and they'll refund it (they jsut do it to make sure it's legit)??? Thanks!!

you can go online, print out a form, and drop it off at the post office.  That's free.

:you can go online, fill out the form, pay a dollar fee, and change your address online.  Your name and address have to match the name and address on the credit card.

You can go to the post office, go to the counter, and ask for a change of address form.  That's free, but they are behind the counter now.

Diane is back - yeah!  You staying opened or not for the time being as I can't recall with the plant AMPs and plant closures where we were with DU activity and various moritoriums.  The plant service standard change on 5/19 and then portion of AMPs 6/30 are gonna be challenging to say the least - the whole HR side of the equation and going back to T2 with retreat rights and rebidding that no one can understand will be a mess.

Yes, my office is staying open ... for now.  But since the PMG said, way back when, that he wanted to close about half the offices, I think anybody in a 16 or lower has to be concerned.  On the other hand, do we really need this enormous retail network? 

Sounds like they are going ahead with some of the network changes without waiting for the PRC's "advisory opinion"?  I guess the PMG wants to get as much done as possible before the election season, since announcing that moratorium after August.

"Challenging":  that's a nice way of putting it :)
