We’ve run our own mail servers since… well, technically I have since the mid-80’s, if you count dial-up bulletin boards. But today I switched this site over to delivering mail through one of the many third-party services, since I can’t keep up with asking for exceptions to every single mass-blacklist. So if you (finally) got a confirmation email, that’s what took it so long. (And if you got a second or third confirmation email for something you didn’t sign up for, sorry. I don’t think spammers are using other people’s real email addresses to sign up, but who knows these days.)
In more-literal housekeeping, I’m busy rearranging the workroom so I have a dedicated spot to leave the light box up (done) and to put the conventional or embroidery machine for non-awful pictures/videos for tutorials (in progress).
