Those of you wishing to stay up-to-the-minute with Almanac content (all three of you) can text "almanac" to 44636 (4INFO) from your cell phones. You will receive a text response with a menu of the most recent posts (reply with the menu number to read that post) plus the option to receive text alerts whenever Almanac content is updated (Reply "a"). The service is free and sends five alert messages per day, maximum (alerts will only be sent if you opt in via Reply "a", and can easily be stopped by replying "stop" after receiving a message). More fun for you Almanac junkies. Regards,

Mark D.

For fun, let's see how this forum renders html markup in a comment (if an alert signup widget follows, excellent; if raw markup follows, sadness):

Web Link" target="4info" onsubmit="win=window.open('','4info','toolbars=0,width=300,height=150');">
Web Link" width="230" style="margin-bottom:2px">

Must. Resist. Temptation.

(Like some of us don't waste enough time here already!)
