Email on Your Phone and Blog Problems

Though I'm celebrating my hundredth post, as you can see, I have no text on my last post. I'm having a bit of a problem with my blog, so I'll try to get it up and working as quickly as possible. I made some adjustments to the registry earlier, and thought I had everything running smoothly, but perhaps not... Regardless, I'll try to have it up and running smoothly quickly.

If anyone knows how to deal with a Blogger blog when you post creator publishes but fails to show up, I'd love a few tips. Thanks!

Now the real deal...

Get a free Blackberry
Blackberrys are known for "push email," which is the ability to automatically have your email on your phone. With Gmail, you can send your email to any cell phone for free. Joe at The Evangelical Outpost gives a life hack from his fabulous "Yak Shaving Razors":

#264 Gmail Hack -- Who needs a fancy, expensive Blackberry when you can get email on your cell phone using Gmail and its text forwarding feature? Here's how to set it up:

Go to your "Google Settings" page and click on "Forwarding and Pop." Click on "Forward a copy of incoming mail to" and in the box where you input the email address add your ten digit cell phone number and the domain for your carrier.

Here is a list of the text messaging addresses for common US wireless providers:

Verizon: 10digitphonenumber@vtext.com
AT&T: 10digitphonenumber@mobile.att.net
Sprint: 10digitphonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
T-Mobile: 10digitphonenumber@tmomail.net
Nextel: 10digitphonenumber@messaging.nextel.com
Cingular: 10digitphonenumber@mobile.mycingular.com
Virgin Mobile: 10digitphonenumber@vmobl.com
Alltel: 10digitphonenumber@alltelmessage.com OR message.alltel.com
CellularOne: 10digitphonenumber@mobile.celloneusa.com
Omnipoint: 10digitphonenumber@omnipointpcs.com
Qwest: 10digitphonenumber@qwestmp.com

This is also useful to send, for instance, your wife a quick text message on her phone when, hypothetically, she has a job where she can't use her phone and again, hypothetically, you need to remind her about something or ask her about dinner later that evening. All free, all on any cell phone. I don't know if Joe made it clear enough, but I'd also make sure to check the option to keep emails on Gmail.

There ya go.

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely.
