I've gotten a message from my old friend Gene saying he'd become a follower of this site - and it did nothing for him. No emails or nothing! I looked into it, and there are lots of complaints about this. I looked further and found a subscribe function through Feedburner. You can see it near the top right of the sidebar to the right. Just enter your email address - they'll stay private, of course - and once a day you'll receive an email if I've put some fresh new internet wisdom/drivel up here.
Enjoy. (And thanks, you subscribers.)
