It's Wednesday already? My, this shorter week is going by quickly!
There was a carnival just up the road this evening. I went there to see if they had funnel cake but they didn't.
Apart from that, I've been using Subway coupons that I got from work, of all places. It's interesting that we now have special discounts at Subway and Boston Market. (Well, discounts at two specific restaurants nearby anyway, not all the restaurants in those chains.) I think we also have a discount at the nearby hotel restaurant, but I don't go there because entrees are $20 for crying out loud! Anyway, here is the tuna sub I had this evening at Subway in Ramsey. All the subs I get at Subway tend to look the same because I order them with all the veggies.
Also, while at Subway, I used the wi-fi connection to figure out how to set up the following on my notebook computer, so I'm posting it here for future reference:
Sending files via Gmail SMTP using Blat and stunnel under Windows
Blat is a command-line utility for sending files via email. Unfortunately, it lacks support for either SSL or TLS, which Gmail requires for outgoing mail. This is where Stunnel comes in.
- Download and install Blat from here.
- Download and install Stunnel binaries from here.
- Configure stunnel by editing stunnel.conf. I set client mode in the global options:
client = yes
[ssmtp] accept = 465 connect = smtp.gmail.com:465
- Install and start stunnel by running the following:
stunnel -install stunnel -start
- Define a new Blat profile for stunnel:
blat -install 127.0.0.1 firstname.lastname@example.org 5 465 stunnel-gmail username password
- From then on, you can send a file via Gmail SMTP like this:
blat filename -p stunnel-gmail -to user@domain -base64
