The catalyst for the recent very useful Brief survey of your wishes was to discover how often you wanted to be contacted by us. The survey revealed that there are some people who would like to be alerted every time we post a new article - even though that is usually at least twice a day.

Purple Pager Kevin Laurence has kindly devised a way of setting up a system that will send you an email every time we publish a new article. He writes, 'There is a quick and easy solution available for this purpose if people are willing to sign up to the relatively new, free-of-charge web service called IFTTT (it stands for IF THIS, THEN THAT - it's a bit of an inside joke for computer geeks).

'To prove my point, I have created an IFTTT "recipe" that solves the problem and shared it with the world. Please feel free to make use of it as you wish. There is, of course, nothing to stop anyone from creating their own version and it's very easy to do. You do not need to be particularly computer-literate.

To sign up to this very simple system, just go here.
