This is a reminder to those of you still subscribed to the old Google Feedburner version of our FIBIS news by email. In October I posted that the service would soon be discontinued and advised everyone to subscribe to our new service. Only 400 of you followed my advice and over 1000 of you are still subscribed to the Google Feedburner service!  If you subscribed to FIBIS news by email after 24 October 2012 you don’t need to worry as you will already be subscribed to our new service. If you subscribed before 24 October you need to follow the steps below, if you haven’t already.
