Another Pause, And Email List Woes

I am still tied up with my consulting project, so will not have another instalment until next week.

I looked at e-mail distribution options, and frankly, none were appealing. The most radical solution was to set up a free Substack to use their mailing list service. I still have a few weeks to set it up, and will have to make a decision soon.

Unfortunately, I just checked my existing email subscription list, and it is heavily infested with bogus accounts. (These are mainly from "outlook.com.") Given my concerns with that list, I doubt that I will import it into whatever replacement I go with, and so people will likely need to opt in to the new one.

Note: if you want to post comments from Apple devices (iPhone, iPad), you apparently need to turn off "prevent cross-site tracking" in Safari privacy settings. (The reason presumably is that another URL handles comments, and so the user session needs to be preserved when redirected to that site. I don't like this, but this is not enough to make me switch my hosting service.)
