First let me just thank all of you who have taken the time to confirm their email subscriptions after the obligatory migration I did to aWeber. As I said in yesterday's post , I am no longer using Feedburner as the email delivery for this blog, I migrated to aWeber for fear of any sudden shut down of Feedburner particularly after the news of Google Reader's closure.
