Are you in the U.S.?   You might find a willing seller who would accept a MoneyPak in exchange for bitcoins, for instance.

The #bitcoin-otc marketplace is one place to look:

 - http://bitcoin-otc.com

This may be a silly question but as it's not totally off topic, I figured I'd ask: how exactly does it work ?

how exactly does it work ?

The #bitcoin-otc marketplace is an unstructured marketplace where various offers to buy and sell can be listed.  There isn't even a requirement that the trade involve bitcoins so there have even been trades like Steam subscriptions traded for Amazon gift cards, for instance.

Here's a view of the open buy and sell orders:
 - http://bitcoin-otc.com/vieworderbook.php?sortby=id&sortorder=DESC

To help prevent against fraud, there is a reputation system called the #bitcoin-otc Web of Trust (WoT).  Here's the list of the 1,500+ users:
 - http://bitcoin-otc.com/viewratings.php

All actions for the marketplace occur through IRC.  The "front door" is the #bitcoin-otc-foyer IRC channel:
 - http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#bitcoin-otc-foyer

But to access the marketplace you'll want to use a GPG key, register it with the -otc marketplace, and then hang out in the #bitcoin-otc channel:
 - http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#bitcoin-otc

There is a bit of a learning curve if you aren't already familiar with GPG.  
Here's a video tutorial on using the #bitcoin-otc WoT:
 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HVSVIibZJc

Here's a wiki page for the marketplace:

I used https://get-bitcoin.com/
They were pretty fast.  They have many options of sending them money.  I chose the Wells Fargo transfer because I have a WF account.  I don't think you need to pay for the upgrade "fast" transferrs.  They have always been fast.  I have done two separate transactions with them.  They are usually as closely related to MT Gox as possible at the time they process it.

Aye.  Although I haven't used them yet myself, they seem to be pretty reputable.  They also promise to handle all orders within 24 hours of payment receipt or they will process the order for free.  Mail usually doesn't take more than a day, so you are looking at 2-3 days max.  You can cut that down to 24 hours if you deposit money at a BoA or Chase.

You can send an envelope full of cash to Al's Pawnshop in Canada.  No, seriously.  That is what I do.  He sells them for a 6% discount under the Mt Gox price on the day your money arrives.

It does take a while with the snail mail and all...

If you have a Mt Gox account you can buy Mt Gox redemption codes using PayPal or a credit card at MrCoin.org

Good luck!

I'm getting DNS errors when trying to access Mr. Coin.

"The server at mrcoin.org ...Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address."

Down for everyone is showing that site to be down.

I think I shall email the owner of Mr. Coins.  He should really make his root domain redirect to his www subdomain.

He probably loses a lot of business by not doing that.
