There was a typo in the URL for the blog.  Here is the corrected

I am planning on bringing our library blog into production late in the
spring or early summer.  It is at  It
currently contains only test entries and  a few with actual useful
information in them.  I am looking for some way to make them available
via e-mail as new entries are added.  I would like to find some way to
let patrons "subscribe" to a particular category and have them receive
it via e-mail, preferably the actual entry but would settle for a note
saying it had been updated or a new entry added.  Each category has an
RSS feed.  It is running on an old IBM 300GL running Apache2 under
Ubuntu flavor of Linux using blosxom to run the blog.  It is entirely
open source free software.  I do not have comments enabled and probably
will not.  Any suggestions for the e-mail portion?  It must be open
source and free.  I would appreciate any other constructive comments as
well. I have posted this message to web4lib-l and to Linux in Libraries
