Live Message Alerts


You might have noticed the orange "Live Message Alert" button on the right. If you use MSN Messenger or Windows Messenger, you can sign up to receive alerts when this blog is updated. These alerts can appear on your desktop, email, or mobile device (or all of them if you choose). The alert consists of the title of the post and a link to the page. A list of other sites that offer content alerts is here and here. You can learn more about this free service for your blog at this site. And in the interest of full-disclosure, I'll be doing some part-time work for this company so sign up for it! Right now the service is only available on MSN Messenger (download for Mac) and Jabber. It will soon be available through Yahoo, AOL, and a few other providers in the future.
