Get updates by email or RSS

We don’t want to be those people that put pictures of their kids on Facebook every day. We get annoyed by it, so why would we then do that to you?

To be sure that you don’t miss anything, you can either subscribe to the RSS feed (if you know what that is), or you can sign up to get email updates, either once a week, or once a day. There’s also a signup form in the sidebar and the footer on this website.
