I had to renew my car tax (£160 per annum) by the end of the month. Normally this entails waiting at the post office for bloody ages in a line with a load of other people doing it at the last minute too. Guaranteed to wind everyone up, especially the guy in the middle of the queue who just wants a couple of stamps.
You have to take along your MOT certificate to show your car is roadworthy and your insurance details, so it also requires hunting about in the nether regions of what I laughably call my filing system for want of another phrase.
This time, the renewal form said "Renew your tax online". So I thought I'd give it a go.
Input the code number, it found 1/ me and my address, 2/ my car, its reg no. and all other details, 3/ The details of my MOT certificate filed by the garage, 4/ details of my insurance filed by the insurance company. Paid the bill with my card and I was done, 5 minutes, no queue, no hunting for vaguely remembered paperwork, no swearing.
I love the internet

Just reminded me that I didn't update my drivers license yet after moving with the new address. 2 minutes and 8 bucks later and i just printed out a temp license until they send me the new one in the mail. Nice

My works similarly, but more to do with proximity to the keyboard, it migrates away as it gets older.
