To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of change; I like predictability.  I know that might surprise some of you, but I’m more apt to live by the old adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”  In case some of you are change-averse like me, I want to tell you about a change that is happening today.

As iDigHardware has grown, I’ve made periodic modifications to keep the site stable and capable of handling the increased traffic.  With several thousand subscribers to the daily or weekly notifications of new posts on the site, it’s time to make a change to the system we use to send those emails.  If you are a daily subscriber, you’ll see a new style of email notification today – weekly subscribers will see the new format on Friday.

If you are a subscriber and have not been receiving the email notifications, they may be going to your spam, junk, or clutter folder.  If that’s been happening, the new emails may show up in your inbox for a few days until your email server starts recognizing them as similar to other emails you have received, and then they may be diverted from your inbox as before.  In order to receive the notifications, it’s best to add my email address ( to the list of people you want to receive email from.

If you are not currently a subscriber, you can use these links to register to receive either daily or weekly email notifications or use the boxes in the right sidebar of iDigHardware.  Subscribing to email notifications will ensure that you don’t miss an important post (or Wordless Wednesday/Fixed-it Friday photo!), and that you continue to learn about the ever-changing code requirements that affect door openings.

To all of the readers of iDigHardware, thank you very much for being a part of this community, adding your insight, and continuing to improve life safety by learning about codes and sharing the information with others.  If you have any problems subscribing to receive email notifications, feel free to contact me.
