So I created my account ~19 hours ago. I followed 44 accounts, none of
which I knew personally or communicated with before. I posted 4 "toots"
(including "hello world").

In response I got:
1 welcome message out of the blue
4 followers
5 favs
3 replies

I can say, it's a pretty open and welcoming bunch around here!

Mind blown here: For years I've been using par(1) to reformat paragraphs in vim. Which does an aesthetically pleasant job, but the documentation and configuration is mildly speaking *nuts*. And today for no obvious reason I came across the vim-builtin "gq" command. Which does it all and with some extra magic.

Опять война. Опять никому не нужные, ничем не вызванные страдания, опять ложь, опять всеобщее одурение, озверение людей.

Что же это такое? Во сне это или наяву? Совершается что-то такое, чего не должно, не может быть, — хочется верить, что это сон, и проснуться.

Но нет, это не сон, а ужасная действительность.

So far I've followed a bunch of accounts I've seen on the public
timeline of sdf and bsd.network. Not sure if I have the best way to
do this. My goal is to be able to read the interesting stuff from
both these instances (minus a few of those that are uninteresting to
me).

It seemed a bit much manual labour at first, but I guess I don't
need to do it so often. The advantage of looking at the public timeline
is that I might spot any new people/accounts. Let's see how it will
work out for now.
