Some of you have subscribed by e-mail to the site by using the checkboxes at the bottom of each post when you comment. Those e-mails are provided by wordpress.com We're no longer going to provide that feature, because it depends too heavily on a system that lately we've found crashing the site. Google provides very nice e-mail updates that just work, and we've already been simultaneously using it for years, so we're encouraging any e-mail subscribers using the wordpress.com e-mail updates to switch over to that. Here's how:
THE OLD WAY: (no longer supported)
THE NEW WAY (using Google)
Step 1: Click NEWS FEED (note: you can also subcribe to comments, if you like)
Step 2: Click "Get Giza Death Star delivered by email"
Step 3: Look for a confirmation e-mail in your inbox. You must confirm your subscription to receive e-mail updates. If you don't see the e-mail, check your SPAM folder or TRASH folder in your e-mail software.
NOTE: We don't directly support e-mail subscriptions (this is not a change) - it's a 3rd party service. Before, they were provided by wordpress.com and Google. Now they're provided by google only, and you self-manage those subscriptions, so if you decide to modify your subscription later, refer to the link at the bottom of the e-mails you receive.
