Excuse me, but ...

Aren't Roman letters our standard alphabet?
And isn't 'Arabic numerals' one of the names sometimes used for our standard numbers? (even though the glyphs we use aren't exactly Arabic)
The only odd thing I saw in the information about Addressing Standards for International Mail is the fact that they require UPPER CASE Roman letters for the address.

The only thing I thought was strange was I got this email from the United States Postal Service, just a couple of days ago. It said it started in September 2006.

Wonder how many people put Roman Numerals on their packages.


You are right, Arabic numerals are the standard numbers we use everyday.

I went to the USPS site to check on postage to Ireland for a Christmas card. I have a stamp I bought last year, but I know the rate has increased.

I searched and re-searched for the price for a 1st class stamp to ireland.

All I could find was $10.40.

Reason tells me there is other information on the site, but I can't find it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
