Your main instance is your home base. Other instances are like heading out to work, or the pub, if you like. But they're not essential, and you can follow folk from any instance. That means hashtag searches are one of Mastodon's most crucial features, making the hashtag actually useful again.

That last boost of mine from Aditya is *really* great for people who are still struggling with the idea of instances.

Bold Monday has a set of custom fonts (sans, serif and mono) made for IBM called IBM Plex available for free.
I've been using the mono version in my Ulysses writing environment all day and it's pretty great!
