Email Subscription Button

After Bryan added more subscription options to his blog, I decided to do the same. I chose iFeedReaders to provide other subscription options and FeedBlitz to provide an email subscription option. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a decent generic email subscription button, so I whipped this one up last night using the email icon from Mark James’ Silk Icons. Feel free to use it on your blog too.

Here are the highlights from today’s Blogroll dive:


Favored Freeware: Aleph One

Aleph One is an open-source descendent of Bungie’s classic first-person shooter trilogy, Marathon. Aleph One features OpenGL rendering and supports Marathon 2 and Marathon Infinity data files. A conversion of Marathon 1, called M1A1, and many third party scenarios are also available.

Pros: Aleph One’s support for OpenGL and optional high-resolution textures and landscapes breathes new life into the classic Marathon Trilogy. Aleph One is a cross-platform game for Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Cons: None significant.

Note: The story of the Marathon Trilogy continues in the unofficial fourth installment, Rubicon X.
