I wired the brick up as a very small external monitor, so you can, for instance, play Doom on it.

Because the Fediverse uses chronological timelines, and because it has a worldwide audience, it is totally fine to boost your own post later so it can reach people in different time zones.

There's no algorithm deciding what people see in their main Fediverse timeline, so they just see whatever happens to be there when they are online.

The Adventure continues!💻✨

Ok so, after a very long reflection to pick a good computer name (it deserves it), I’ve decided to go completely ridiculous and setup an HEXABOOT !! ⎔ :partyparrot:

I mean, why pick only 1 Linux distro when you could have 6? :linux: :linux: :linux: :linux: :linux: :linux:

That’s my main argument anyhow.
Stay tuned!

Placing back the cables for the WiFi antenna properly was the “trickiest” part but was still pretty easy. Well, we’ll see if I get a validating :rss: later on… the instructions were very well done:

If you're using Mastodon through the website, you can stop new posts appearing automatically by using "slow mode".

To switch it on, go to Preferences > Slow Mode, tick the box and click "Save Changes". (To switch it off, untick and save.)

This will make timelines (including Home, Local and Federated) as well as notifications no longer scroll automatically when you are reading them. Instead, new posts will be hidden behind a clickable link at the top of each column.

(Thanks to @aral for suggesting tip!)
