#BSDlife ngrep is one of my favourite command line power tools.

github.com/jpr5/ngrep is tcpdump + grep combined:

sudo ngrep -d lo0 -W byline 'HTTP/' 'dst host and port 80'

# 'HTTP/' regex match any packet with that text
# 'host ...' bpf syntax filter

You can optionally write the captured data to pcap format too!

I've gotten better with navigating the fediverse, almost exclusively due to search.social. A HUGE thanks to @href. But it is a disjointed process - it would be ideal if this was integrated into #Pleroma.

I don't have high expectations of #Mastodon, they actively oppose useful features.
This is open on every floor in my building.

What, if anything, could I do with a Raspberry Pi?
