I've added a new feature to the blog. Instead of having to check the blog manually, you can get updates automatically by email.
Fill in your email address in the box on the right. You will be taken to a page at Feedblitz that asks you to type in the letters and numbers you see in an image; this is to stop spammers from getting into the email system. Then click 'Subscribe me'. You'll then have to check your email for a confirmation mail. Click on the link in the email and then you'll be subscribed.
It's a bit of a long process but it's meant for everyone's protection against spammers and people doing dastardly deeds.
If you have trouble or questions about this process, let me know.
