@SaraHaworth After I work out which pane does what (I can't, somehow) I still don't really know where I can find a "list" of people who talk about things I'm interested in. Twitter has the "you may be interested in" feature which, for obvious privacy-related reasons, Mastodon lacks. Unfortunately, it's a massive convenience. Chasing hashtags - in my opinion - is cumbersome and will only net you so much of a benefit.
Not going to lie, the whole following/discovery system on Mastodon is far inferior to almost anything else.

Finally got my Linux/Windows setup how I need it to be.
