In the past few months, a lot has been happening.
My wife and I have moved into a new apartment, and in Germany that requires a remarkable amount of effort. Things like cabinets, window dressings and so on are installed by the renter, so that’s occupied a lot of my attention. Only in the past couple of weeks does it feel like we’re really in, even though we’ve been here officially since the beginning of March.
Email Sub-Weirdness S’more
Simultaneously, the service that’s been providing the email subscriptions on this website has just been awful. It had been sending repeat emails of old posts, and then finally it just stopped. The service is called Feedburner, and it’s a service that Google doesn’t really want to support anymore, so when it breaks, there’s no real recourse other than doing rain dances and hoping it starts working again.
I think, I think that I’ve fixed it by changing how emails are sent out, but honestly, this is just hard for me. I know a lot since I’ve been doing this website for longer than I care to add up right now, but it’s not my profession, so I just didn’t know how to move forward here in way that was mostly seamless and didn’t cost me a lot (or anything really, since I basically make nothing from this website).
Email subscribers shouldn’t notice anything. For folks subscribed via RSS, I strongly suggest that you subscribe to this feed:
The Feedburner feed should keep working for the time being, but I have no idea when it will shut off. It may be years. Nevertheless, I cannot move your RSS subscription for you.
This problem has been vexing me so much that’s it’s caused me to abort any writing attempts, it just felt like a knot that I didn’t know how to untie.
Nevertheless, there were some posts that weren’t sent out via email, and maybe you’d be interested in reading them. Here are the posts that aren’t just updates about performances I was doing:
I think those four are enough for now if you’re interested. I’m proud of them and hope you enjoy them.
Hitting Publish now. I hope this works.
