Hello there. <b>Test</b>
Both Mastodon and Pleroma have features to only see content from within your server.
Are you talking about the Local feed? That doesn't solve the problem of trying to have a conversation with people on your instance only to have some troll from shitposter.club or neckbeard.xyz jump in. Mastodon provides public, unlisted, followers-only, and direct--but not local-only, and unlisted isn't an adequate substitute because unlisted toots are still accessible from the open web.
I'm super tempted to try ed :D
If you don't want to shell out for MWL's ed Mastery, "Actually using ed" will get you started. blog.sanctum.geek....
I also use emacs now. Been learning it for the past few month and having lots of fun learning elisp too!
Oddly enough, I've only just started using regex in emacs. Whenever I needed to edit with regexps before, I'd switch to vi.
I've never taken the time to learn nano yet, looks like a simple yet powerful editor.
nano's solid. If I hadn't first been exposed to emacs and vi in college, I might have gone with nano as $EDITOR. It does a good job of exposing basic functionality to inexperienced operators, but becomes more powerful with experience.
I am starting to think that any new microblog should have federation support at this point. There's too many social networks; things are too fragmented. It's definitely nice having a small community of likeminded folks, but the paradox is that every community in its early stage wants *more* users until the point where old users reminisce of the good old days when the site had "personality", and then leave to another smaller community.
I disagree. Federation is one of the reasons Mastodon/Pleroma are unpleasant; it contributes to context collapse and makes it harder to compartmentalize across forums. If I'm on server X, I don't want to hear from anybody on servers Y and Z (or see their untagged loli porn or alt-reich memes). If I wanted to interact with people on servers Y and Z, I'd create accounts there.
What's your favorite text editor?
Emacs, but I can use ed and vi when they're better suited to a given task.
