Jack emphasized that nothing is as important as getting this email like stuff rolling and doing it through aweber. 

So I shelled out $200 this morning.  And have been struggling with their interface all morning.  Very buggy.  Once I have it running, it would be nice to have some people willing to test it.

How do you test it? just send you emails? I can do that, otherwise im not tech savvy to say the least. forums and searches are as advanced as I get.

Well, I gotta finish getting it set up.  Once it is set up, I'll give instructions here.

  Are we looking at the whole page or something to do with email?

Kane put a LOT of work into this.  And then I had a long conversation with somebody at aweber and it sounds like things are very different than I thought they would be.  After a long chat with Kane, all of his hard work was taken out and the form is changed and we'll try a different path:

Notice that the digest stuff is taken out.  Apparently there is no auto-digest.  You have to do that manually.  And the last thing I need is another job to do.

I've received about 20 email signups so far today. 

I sent something out at about 11:00am mountain time (30 minutes ago).  I would think that we would see something by now.

Just received an email about podcast 'bigbucks 2 and 3', about ten minutes ago, with a link about aweba at the the bottom. Was that the one?

Hi,
I'm new to the forums.  Love the podcasts.  Keep it up.
I signed up for the email notification stuff today and promptly received your update about the new podcasts being posted at 4:49 EST (all the way up here in Ottawa, Canada).  Everything worked seamlessly on my end.
