In less than 48 hours I’m going to be a married man. I think it’s going to hit me once I see everyone who is coming down for the wedding.

🔖 Bookmarked Delayed delivery to Gmail

So what we have here is roughly 4 minutes that an email sat undelivered to my inbox, stuck inside Google’s internal servers waiting for delivery.

This is something I’ve noticed in the past. Interesting to see that Google accepts the email right away, but takes a while to deliver it to the recipient’s inbox.

I moved my IndieWeb Webring links to the top-right corner of my site to make them more visible, but didn’t like the result. That seems to break convention, anyway. Back to the footer they go.

🔖 Bookmarked Running Linux on your smartphone: everything you need to know in 2020

I’ve installed postmarketOS on my Galaxy Nexus in the past, but at the moment it’s more of a novelty. I’ll be excited once I can make calls, too.

Beat Link’s Awakening on the Switch in about 11 hours (non-consecutively). Never played it before, didn’t know a thing about it when I started playing other than there’s a big egg at the top of a mountain that is important for some reason.

It was a really good game. The dialogue is fantastically snarky, the puzzles are fun, and I think that the music in the Face Shrine may be my favourite shrine/dungeon theme of any Zelda game.

I bought Neuromancer before Christmas, but I haven’t started reading it yet. I have this terrible habit of buying books but never reading them. I still haven’t read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and I bought it years ago…

I created a Shortcut to post to my site from my iPhone. This is so much easier than creating each file individually in the Dropbox app.

This was a fun wake up call this morning. Luckily it was a mistake. (Not that I live nearby anyway.) Apparently it went out to the whole province.


Fun fact: the world’s largest fully operational nuclear plant is also in Ontario.
