Receive my rants on paper

I've signed on with Print My Blog, a service that provides hard copy versions of blogs to readers. I don't have any illusions of writing a proper book here but from looking at the traffic logs for this site it's quite common for new visitors to spend an hour or two reading the archives.

I know myself that reading a large chunk of any blog in sequential order is an annoying experience and Blogger's lack of good navigation links between articles makes it more difficult. The paper version is in chronological order from earliest to latest and is much easier to read than the online version.

What does it look like?

If you order a printed copy you get a cheap and nasty collection of half size pages stapled together containing all my blog posts to date. There's no reader comments but there is an online system in place to allow links to be followed. Like I said it's cheap and nasty, you won't be looking to place it on your bookshelf, but it is a much easier way to read my articles.

What does it cost?

US$4.50 (postage is free inside the USA)

The $4.50 all goes to the Print My Blog people. If you're feeling especially generous you can add on an extra amount of which I receive 75%. Many thanks if you do but it's really not necessary, I'm a developer not an author.

How do I order?

Just pick the link below that indicates the amount you'd like to pay for a printed copy of all my postings to the current date.

Any idea why this particular entry and the "Carnival of the Capitalists" constantly show up as updated in the RSS feed? I'm using Bloglines and it seems to always think those are new entries. It's becoming a little annoying. Besides that, keep pushing!

Sorry about that. I've sent queries to both Bloglines and Feedburner to try and get it sorted out.
