Geocache Description:


Number 633 in a series of caches where a red telephone box is in close proximity to a post box.
The only rules are that they have to be able to be photographed together, be not more than 100’ apart and the phone boxes have to be red.

Is the Fine Pair coming to an end? There are many signs being placed in K6 phone boxes stating "Telephone kiosk review. This kiosk is not being used sufficiently to continue service at this location."

With so many mobile phones around these days, perhaps it's a surprise that the number of phone boxes in the UK is still so high. Will they all be gone soon?

With so many people using email these days I wonder if we will see the removal of postboxes.

Unfortunately you get a lot of spam with emails

Email spam, also known as junk email is a subset of electronic spam whereby a single unsolicited message is sent by email.

Many email spam messages are commercial by nature but email spam messages may also contain disguised links that appear to be for familiar websites but in fact lead to phishing web sites or sites that are hosting malware. Spam email may also include malware as scripts or other executable file attachments. Definitions of spam used to include the aspect that similar email messages are sent in bulk but with the advent of bots and improved bot technology the use of the word "bulk" has become deprecated as definitions are changing to adapt with the advancement in technology. Bots now send individually crafted bulk email and the messages are no longer necessarily the same. The opposite of "spam" is sometimes called "ham". Spam is named after Spam luncheon meat by way of a Monty Python sketch in which Spam is depicted as ubiquitous and unavoidable

Email spam has steadily grown since the early 1990s. Botnets, networks of virus-infected computers, are used to send about 80% of spam. Since the expense of the spam is borne mostly by the recipient, it is effectively postage due advertising.

The Fine Pair series was originally started by wizardsmum but is now managed by mattd2k.

If anybody would like to place 'A Fine Pair' of their own please do. I would just ask that you first visit www.afinepair.co.uk to request a number to avoid any duplication.

mattd2k also keeps a public Bookmark List of this series. Once your cache is published please contact him via geocachingafinepair@gmail.com to have yours added.
