      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
      subscription form
      <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 caveatsÅ  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.
