comment Is there any URL pattern I can use to open citymapper.com with a search predefined?
You can use Google Maps API to look up the latitude/longitude and then submit to citymapper, which is pretty much what citymapper is doing anyway: googlegeodevelopers.blogspot.com/2013/06/…

Have you done a "view source" on the page to see if they include the actual post time in comments?

What machine/device would you like to find the regex and send the content to IFTTT? In other words, where would you like to process the email filter?

comment Is it possible to bulk edit all my Facebook posts?
Facebook has an API or you could use something like iMacros to script a solution (after paging all the way down on your "activity" page)

comment How do I avoid the <img src> attribute being stripped by GMail?
Google used to intentionally not display inlined images in webmail for security purposes. I believe they have now changed this policy.

comment Searching for populations of a list of cities
You might want to play around with a db I created from the geonames.org data. Sample query: 69d09f284af2d9321d9a6863d0defa2d.geonames.db.barrycarter.info This isn't very detailed, includes cities whose alternate name is Alexandria, and exposes a duplicate in the geonames.org database.

comment Gmail web says “not sent to spam”, downloaded version doesn't
No, no. Your suggestion was good, thank you. I just meant that this is getting to be too much work (for me <G>) for something that I thought was simple.

comment Gmail web says “not sent to spam”, downloaded version doesn't
OK, I've actually done this by pulling "[Gmail]/Spam" in my getmail rc file. However, I dislike pulling to multiple folders, especially when all my labelled messages are also in INBOX.
