Any new information is often posted on this site first, or solely, as a “comment” to a recent article. I will only post a new “article” like this (or re-post an updated item) when there is substantive news which I feel should be brought to the attention of all subscribers. I do not wish to annoy subscribers with too many emails or too much detail. Anyone who wishes also to be notified of new “comments” can click here and follow the instructions. I am re-distributing this information because one of the (RSS to email) services previously recommended has now been discontinued and this FAQ entry has been updated accordingly; also for the benefit of any new subscribers and in recognition of the importance of the protracted loss of telephone and broadband services. I am also assuming that some people will be receiving email updates at work, or by mobile phone, even though their home broadband is out.
