“E-mail Subscription”)–You’ll get an e-mail when something new is posted…


C: Bookmark this page–it will show up in your ‘Bookmarks’ and you can come back and

check it out whenever you happen to remember to (at least in Safari it will)…

the cute little symbol–they’re both at the top of the homepage [portlandians.com])

2b) When it takes you to that page, look in the grey sidebar on the right and

find the section named “Actions”…

2c) Click on “Subscribe in iTunes” (and watch a computer make more magic than David Blaine)…
