Gnarg! I had android.clients.google.com hardcoded in my 📁 /etc/hosts file the whole time! No idea why. Best case scenario: it didn’t matter at all. Worst case scenario: it raised alerts on my test accounts and/or IP address. Stupid problem: no way of finding out which.
This calls half of last weeks work into question.
In other news: I got an email about a CAPTCHA affected Raccoon instance recovering automatically. Appears as if you can sit this out. Not that you’d want to or that this is practible a solution.
