After a couple months of giving Gmail's "improved" interface a shot, I switched my default view to "Basic HTML" and it's nice to remember that the web is supposed to be fast now

Got all excited about following the BitCurator User Forum via livestream today and then was frustrated for the past two hours that no links were appearing

Just remembered that they're on the West Coast

Severely disappointed by going to watch Netflix's new season of Great British Baking Show and realizing that "Collection 5" = Season 8, that is, the new Mary Berry-less edition

I distinctly recall seeing a piece that they had acquired distribution for Season 3 (which originally premiered prior to Netflix's "Collections 1-4") - anyone know when that is going to be available? (And more importantly for those of us who obsessively catalog their viewing it will be numbered/sequenced??)
