It's even worse than it appears.

  • I use my kitchen Alexa only to listen to WNYC. #
  • Usually I say Alexa WNYC and it works.#
  • Now I have to say it slowly and loudly, being sure there’s no other sound. It takes 3 or more tries.#
  • It's getting worse.#
  • But when I say Alexa stop it works every time.#
  • What's wrong?#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
