About me

Subscribe by Email

Today, I’ve finally launched an oft-requested feature… you can now subscribe to this blog by email.

If you give me your email address here (or on the ‘Subscribe by Email’ link on the sidebar), the system will send you an email each time I write a new post, and I’ll even include the full text of the post for your perusal. I’ll throw in a link to the post, as well, so that you can see it complete with any formatting or pictures, and also comment on it or see any other comments that have been left. This is in addition to the recently-launched comments feed subscription options, which allow you to be notified each time a comment is left on a post which you have already comment on.

The service is (of course) completely free of charge, and your email address will be used for nothing other than sending you these updates.

I hope this feature proves useful to you!

Update: Link URI updated

This e-mail service is yet another example of bandwidth terrorism, filling the Internet with yet more uncessary bytes.

What makes it worse, is that you appear not to be offering a text only service, but are sending out megabytes of Mime encoded material.

Logic says that I’m only sending it out if people request it. Hardly ‘terrorism’.

“Hardly ‘terrorism’”

Get with it Simon!

In the 50s, 60s, and 70s, everything with which one disagree with was labeled as “communism”.

Now the bogey word is “terrorism”.

Remember, you do not have to provide a reasoned logical argument against something, you just have to label your opponent as a terrorist.

You are probably one of those Mailman fundamentalist extremists!

Ah, you see I tend to leave name calling to certain other sites, where it occasionally reaches proportions so great that the forum becomes virtually unreadable.

As for whether I’m a Mailman fundamentalist – I use no extra software to manage the email lists, it’s all done automatically thanks to this plugin.
