Setting up on an old Thinkpad to loan someone for a bit who just needs a basic computer for normal use (non-techie); is the latest and greatest generally stable or should I stick with the last LTS release?

*JT voice* ...and one more thing: drop the 'official'. Just 'Mastodon'. It's cooler.

Furthermore, .club is not. Data scientists believe there may be more TLDs out there that we have yet to discover. Facinating!

A diverse community that's safe for as many people as possible cannot be safe for bigots. You do not need to tolerate bigots in your community spaces.

I'd like to read you something that Soulja wrote, and that really affected me personally.

TIL: in OpenBSD your shell command history (using the default ksh) does not persist after you logout as by default the $HISTFILE environment variable is not set:

```
echo 'export HISTFILE="$HOME/.sh_history"' >> $HOME/.kshrc
touch $HOME/.sh_history
```

Conversely in bash (e.g. on your Linux machine, etc), if you'd rather not have the persistent history, you can unset the variable in your `.bashrc` to not write your command history to a file (will clear upon logout)

How to Use Mastodon: "It's pretty fucking simple." (video)

Similar to how one may choose between the predatory practices of the banking industry or to simply save their money with a local cooperative in a Credit Union, the decision may be made to host your data with known advertising predators or to choose a platform you can trust.
