Getting Ansible via RSS
Below is the URL to give to your news reader/aggregator. The resulting RSS updates are pretty minimalist – I list whole issues only, not having the time or inclination to index each issue paragraph by paragraph.
¶ For Facebook users there's an official Ansible Facebook Page and also a Facebook Group. Neither will provide reliable notification of each new issue (since Facebook policy is to provide a crippled service unless I pay to "promote" the monthly Ansible announcements, a game which I refuse to play). I normally post the link to each new Ansible to the page, group and my own personal profile on publication day. Feel free to like the page, join the group, follow me personally, or whatever combination of these you prefer:

¶ For Ello users (are there any?) I have a widely disregarded page there and may remember to post links to each new issue:
¶ Want more than just Ansible? There is a weblog-format page of updates at DavidLangford.co.uk. As well as the regular Ansible uploads, this also records documents newly uploaded to my personal site and perhaps elsewhere – e.g. reviews, articles, and Langford columns from SFX magazine.

My thanks to Andrew Plotkin for initial advice on plunging into the murky waters of RSS, and to Rose Fox for setting up the LiveJournal syndication.
