Hi there

If your answer to the question in the subject line is "yes" then you should have an email account There is a good news for all the CPAN module authors that all emails are now going to be SPAM filtered by (part of Fastmail family). It also mentioned that less 7% of emails sent to are valid. It is a big improvement in my humble opinion.

COVID-19, how you are keeping yourself busy? I am using the break to learn Raku. Please do share yours idea.

Last but not the least, "stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives" as promoted by UK government.
