So I’ve been keeping quiet about a development since March, because I didn’t want to jinx it, but I got an important e-mail today that made it clear to me that ship has sailed, unfortunately.

I received a confirmation of receipt from two of them by e-mail, standardized, probably automated. But still, it’s good to know the packages reached their destination. Continue reading
