Choices are Good.
While in vanilla Mastodon world, getting an admin to consider allowing more than the miserable 500 characters maximum toot size is a Tall Order -- I tried a few times, and was denied almost always, in more Advanced places we see innovation and openness.
Was just surprised to find not the Usual TWO choices of Front Ends (user interfaces, or web clients) at one of the Pleroma instances I have accounts on.
Pick between :
Pleroma FE, high polish, and full featured.
Mastodon FE, the usual web client most mastodonians will feel at home in.
Plus -- and this is all his customizing :
And the brand new SoapBox FE, which just released it's 1.0 version.
I had seen SoapBox at other instance and been impressed. And it's nice to see it now available at FAB, EMR, jaeger.website and probably other places too.
Congrats to @a1ba and @alex !

I'm a gamer and try to keep it linux as much as possible. Just read that Titanfall2 is now available on steam and that multiplayer works as fine as expected. I'm willing to forget about apex for the time being and fo full-on TF|2 !
If you like fps's this game is heavily underrated and silly amounts of fun !
Keep in mind that if this is your first time, the skillgap is savage...

Would you like to know in near real time what is being written to a file 📝 or watch live how your 💽 hard drive is filling up? With watch 👓 this is possible:
$ watch -td df -h
The -t option turns off the header and -d highlights changes. We see with 'watch' and the command 'df -h' what's happening.
For example, this is a small 🕰️ clock for the 💻 terminal:
$ watch -t -n1 date
Where -n sets the update interval to 1 second. Default is 2.
