New Reg newsletter redefines choice paradigm

All the news - just how you like it

Site news We've just completed a major overhaul of our Reg newletter to drag our email news alert service kicking and screaming into the new millennium. After weeks of tireless work by an elite team of coding troubleshooters, we have improved, extended and refurbished the service to such an extent that even battle-hardened Vulture Central hacks conceded a grudging grunt of approval.

First up, the new newsletter comes in two flavours - text and html. Next, we have added the ability for users to pick exactly what bits of El Reg they'd like to receive in their inboxes. So, if you have a penchant for BOFH, for example, then just select "Odds'n'Sods". If, on the other hand, servers do not ring your IT bell, then simply deselect "Enterprise". It's as simple as that.

What's more, you can have your choice of headlines emailed to you daily, or once a week. And once you're signed up, you can log in and change your preferences at any time. (Existing users fear not - you too can get in there right now and exercise the democratic right to choice to your hearts' content).

The registration page can be found here. There are other options, too, such as whether or not you want to receive our monthly Cash'n'Carrion newsletter, packed with exclusive special offers and discounts, and an opt-in for our periodic Reg surveys.

And, for a limited period only, new UK subscribers will get a free £20 voucher to spend at Virgin Wines. The deal is this - the voucher is redeemable off a case of wine worth 50 quid or more, excluding P&P. A case is defined of a minimum of 12 bottles of 275ml each. The offer is availble to all of the UK excluding Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. The voucher will be emailed to you after registration, and must be used within a month of receipt.

So there you have it - a new, all-singing, all-dancing, 21st-century newsletter with the chance of discounted plonk for new Brit subscribers. Marvellous. ®
