I did the Amsterdam Catacombs online escape room last night with Outlandish co-op.

We are launching https://fedisearch.com , a website for doing full text search on fediverse content.
This could be very useful for small instances users that are missing full text searches, just about anyone else who is looking for a blazing fast fediverse search engine.
We have a well behaved indexer that honors users' preference on opting out status indexing.
Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

Well played, younger Doug, well played (and I totally took that advice!) 🎆 🔥 😂
