What, if anything, are folks doing to promote mastodon? I would love to see more of my social media friends here instead of sites like Facebook.

So, bit the bullet and purchased a System76 Galago Pro, yesterday. In my 50 years on this planet, I've never owned a new laptop. I've always used older equipment from friends or companies that I worked for. I love my ThinkPad T400 but it's nearly 10 years old and definitely ready for replacement. Pretty excited!

Just started using mastodon seriously. One thing I can't figure out is how to only see posts in my stream from people that I follow. Is this possible?

Okay, stepped away for a while but back for good. Facebook account has been deleted. Honestly, haven't used it for a year so why keep the privacy trap open? Still using Twitter and G+ (G+, not so much).

So, the wunderground app is telling me the humidity is only 49%. Feels like 100%. Very uncomfortable today. I'm really not looking forward to another St. Louis summer. Love this area but just not the summer weather.

Being able to OAuth with other services (and link back to them from Mastodon) could go a long way to verifiability without having to have a centralized concept "Verified". I.e. if I link my Twitter, GitHub, and Google accounts, you can be pretty dang sure it's actually me writing here.
