I figured you had hit "send" prematurely, but I'm not surprised that mobile Gmail is still wonky. Google's motto ought to be "Even in the future nothing works."

Yeah, email can be pretty chill as long as spam and office life haven't ruined it for you. :)

I agree, but when I migrated to Geminispace again (this isn't my first time) I made sure that my website pointed to my capsule via portal.mozz.us. If people want to visit my site that badly they'll find a way.
