Until my computer crashed last week, I was getting the Librivox New Releases RSS feed delivered into my email every day. I want to get that again but can't find where I subscribed to it. Help?

There's a list of feeds here: https://librivox.org/pages/librivox-feeds/ (thanks for mentioning it, too ... some newer folks might not have thought of looking for something like this.)
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

Thanks. How do you reach it if you don't know the address? It was once on the About page or some other obvious place. And when I go to the New Releases Feed, it takes me to a page of code!!!!! In fact, the only link that takes me to a usable page for subscribing to is the Community Podcast link.

It's the furthest right icon on the home page (the three curved bars, which is the RSS logo.)

In terms of subscribing ... mostly people use an RSS reader, which pulls in the code and formats it for you. I assumed you had something like that installed because it stopped when your system crashed, whereas if you were using an online service (e.g. https://blogtrottr.com or Feedburner), then the emails wouldn't have been affected. Also, Feedburner was set up exclusively for the community podcast, don't think there's ever been a similar service for the New Releases.

Thanks Cori. I finally figured out how to set this up on my Outlook. I'm back in business! :thumbs:
