When I go an hour or more without getting an email, I start wondering if my mail server configuration got changed or something.

Does anyone use a read later addon for other than Pocket? Which one(s) do you like?

The town seemed to be bustling with activity, but there was one peculiarity - there was nary a woman in sight! As I posited this quandary, an older man finally deigned to give an answer.
Letting out a long sigh, "Well, if it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe… I'd been married a long time ago…", he trailed off, looked longingly at the far end of town, and muttered under his breath, "Where did you come from, where did you go?", letting out another sigh of resignation, "Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?"

@mike In case you're interested, my personal site with Pico is now pulling from a GitHub repo. The RSS feed is also generating correctly, parsing JSON from the Github API into an XML doc.

Which happens to be the most critical part...

So, I think I need to install a new septic system...

But lunch is done, so that will have to wait for another day.

Next step is to get the RSS feed to build with remote files.

Lunch project: getting Pico to load text files from a GitHub repo. Set as an option in the config file. If you can get the app set up, you can read it from a remote repository with text files.

F-droid.org repository index is now fixed. Should be all working normally again!
