In the good old days, quitting was easy - a short, sharp letter to the boss and a 'thanks but no thanks'. Today, though, even resigning needs to be done properly to ensure that bridges aren't burned, reputations aren't damaged and recriminations don't haunt.

Enter www.i-resign.com, a web site intended to steer you safely through the minefield of resignation etiquette. It was founded by Kauser Kanji, Oliver Wood and Tim Snaith, men who have notched up 13 resignations between them. You may choose between the satirical and the serious. So the Quitters' Hall of Fame and the Quit Clock (how long before you're due to leave) share space with legal advice on contracts and salary, CV tips and links to recruitment sites.

A news wire highlights the day's professional casualties, and you can even nominate your own resignation note for letter of the day. A must for quitters everywhere.
