Get Pepys' Diary by email
http://www.pepysdia ry.com/about/ archive/2007/ 10/13/7962. php
The most requested feature for the site has been
to receive daily diary entries by email. It may
have taken me nearly five years for me to manage
this but, finally, it's now possible.
To subscribe you simply need to visit the
<http://www.feedburn er.com/fb/ a/emailverifySub mit?feedId= 1245958&loc= en_US>
and fill in your email address. You'll receive an
email asking you to confirm your address and then
you're done. After a new diary entry is published
on the site you'll receive it by email. There are
instructions for unsubscribing at the end of
every daily email you'll receive.
A couple of caveatsŠ It could be a few hours
after a diary entry is published that you receive
it by email, so this isn't the way to go if you
want your daily dose immediately. You also won't
see any of the annotations by email, so you'll
still have to visit the site if you want those.
If your email client is fairly modern (accepts
HTML email) then you'll still get links to
Encyclopedia pages within the diary entry (this
works fine in Gmail for example); otherwise
you'll just see the text with no links.
The email process is handled by FeedBurner
<http://www.feedburn er.com/>, where all this
site's RSS feeds
<http://www.pepysdia ry.com/about/ formats/> now
live, and has worked for the past week while I've
been testing it, but let me know (below or by
email) if you experience problems.
