New: Noise to Signal postcards

Here's a little something we're trying out on the Noise to Signal cartoon: a postcard feature.


Head to any (recent) Noise to Signal cartoon, and look for the links at the bottom. You'll find a "Send this as a postcard!" link. Click it, and you're off to the races.

Take it for a spin - I'd love to know if it's working for you!
