Mike's one piece of advice for new Mastodon users - dive into that Federated column and follow ANYONE and EVERYONE who looks like they've posted anything at all interesting to you. Just hammer the button. There's no penalty for mistakes. Go wild.

YOU KNOW YOU CAN VOTE ON DEC 12th IF YOU'RE A COMMONWEATH CITIZEN IN THE UK RIGHT?! "
REMINDER! If you own an original Xbox, you should check the hardware revision version ASAP! Any Xbox pre-v1.6 uses a cheap capacitor which after a decade will corrode and destroy the motherboard permanently.
I’m busting mine out rn (and softmodding it while I’m at it). I suggest you do as well, since it’s essentially a self destruct on vintage hardware.
