Eesti Pagari leivad Starskys.

What's with the trend of people referring to TLDs as extensions? And now registrars are doing the same.

Changing timezone on Linux

On operating systems running systemd you can quickly and easily change the date and time settings using timedatectl utility.
To change timezone, which for some reason I discovered is left as UTC on DigitalOcean droplets regardless of deployment region, do the following:
timedatectl list-timezones
Find the timezone that applies to you, copy or write it down (for example America/Toronto).
Enter: timedatectl set-timezone America/Toronto
You're done.

It turns out that among other crappy practices, Pulotator has a habit of marking deliveries as completed days before they actually deliver. I ordered something off Amazon and a day before the delivery date the package was marked as delivered. After reaching out to AMZN support, they replied that this courier sometimes marks packages delivered a day before. Well, today, a day after the guaranteed delivery date, the package showed up.
