    Oh, sure, you couldn't do it LAST night, when I needed motivation to stop procrastinating. :biggrin:

    The last time I checked, they weren't working …

    (I don't think they've ever worked, except on February 17th, when suddenly dozens of notifications came through all at once … see https://www.physicsforums.com/showpost.php?p=2080537&postcount=10")

    for example, I subscribed to cooper pair (on 22nd or 23rd August, I think), and it was edited on 29th August, but I received no notification. :redface:

    Library subscriptions

    Hi Greg! :smile:
    (wot's a cronjob? :confused:)

    Wow! just got 32 notifications in 2 minutes. :surprised

    Did you trigger something?

    (but no notifications of other members' edits of my own entries, eg exponential Feynman diagrams free energy and resistivity , and no option to subscribe to them :redface:)

    Last Tuesday, we had a "10-15 min" email outage at work for a server reboot. I had to use my personal email until Thursday!

    Good luck, Greg! :biggrin:

    Uh oh! They have one of those planned at the university on Sunday...just when all my students will be panicking and trying to send me emails about their lab exam (they had the lecture exam today).

    Cron

    So you can define for instance a cron job such as "make coffee at 6:25 am" if you intend to wake up at 6:30 am. Of course, it only works on Unix-based OS :cool:
