No More Automatic E-mails from the SolderSmoke Blog


Blogspot and Feedburner tell me that as of the end of August 2021, they will no longer be sending automatic e-mails to those who have subscribed to e-mail alerts for blog postings.  

I believe you can still subscribe to the blog. But no more e-mailed alerts. 

Please let me know if this loss of automatic e-mails will cause major disruptions for you.

  1. I know that we don't want to spread ourselves too thin, tactically speaking. So, along with the Colorburst and the Five-Meter, I'm not sure if we can add a Feedburner Liberation Army. Maybe we could *pretend* to set one up as a Psy Ops measure.

    I'm with Pete. The whole thing is strange. Why not let it just sit there--I doubt it's high maintenance. And it seems to me that with the proliferation of newsletters, email is making something of a comeback.

    I'm going to try to set up an rss feed to notify me of posts. If it doesn't work, I'll shoot you an email.

    Long live the FBLA!

    1. Excellent strategic thinking Keith. Perhaps we should cut a deal with CBLA and FMLA to get them to take on the Feedburners.

  2. I didn't receive the notification emails so I won't be affected by the change.

  3. Hi Bill. It's not a problem for me. I use the RSS links and when web sites don't offer that I monitor them for changes using https://visualping.io/

    So that's two alternatives that people might try.

  4. I would be lost without notification by email. My memory not so good these days.

  5. I didn't get the no more automatic, automatic notification email. I think it was intercepted by an automatic unknown fact checker.:)

    1. Tim: That is really odd. This sequence of events may be related to the new Google "Time Crystal" discussed recently on the blog by our friend Jack in Cyprus. You may have been transferred to a different multiverse! If you continue to get the e-mails, that would confirm this. Please let us know! But, no, wait, you couldn't! Well, anyway, good luck OM! 73 Bill

  6. Hi Bill,

    That was one of the little highlights of my day, waking up in the morning and seeing a SOLDERSMOKE notification in my emails. I will miss them.

  7. I've using RSS in Netvibes.com, the only (at the time) RSS viewer that operated similarly to iGoogle, which of course, was ditched by Google years ago when they got bored with it. Grr. So, OK now, as long as you don't somehow screw up the RSS feed...

    1. That's always a danger Dave. I am an HDR guy struggling in a digital world. I often misplace back-slashes. 73 Bill

    2. Back-slashes, Bill? Ancient DOS convention, Internet uses plain slash / a Unix/Linux convention, and advertizers advertize their ignorance by calling it 'forward' slash :( A pity: it's wastful of advertizing time ...
