Quick Update on Following the Blog

I told a few of you that following the blog by clicking 'Follow' in the right panel would give you an option to receive emails when we upload new content. Well, that turns out to be completely wrong. I suspect that you could figure out some way to do that via Google Reader, but pushing email updates should be much simpler than that. I finally figured out, after giving up hope twice, that Blogger does have a (very well hidden) way of pushing RSS feeds via email. Google recently bought some small start up that just got up and running again called FeedBurner. Their service monitors our blogs RSS feed, parses it up, and publicizes it in various forms.

To get signed up:
1. Enter your email address in the box to the right and click subscribe
2. Crack the captcha (type the funky looking letters in the bottom of the box that pops up into the form near them)
3. Login to the email account corresponding to the address you provided in (1)
4. Click the validation link in the email you just got (or will get in the next few seconds)
