Profiles and posts on Mastodon and the Fediverse have public versions you can share with people who aren't on the Fediverse.
To see the public version of a profile, click on the profile picture. This will open the public version of the profile in a new tab.
To see the public version of a post, click on the datestamp below the post. This will open the public version of the post in a new tab.
These "public pages" are handy for sharing with friends, because they don't require logging in to see them.
Public pages are also very useful for something else:
If you paste the URL address of a public page into the search box on Mastodon, and then search for it, the post or profile will appear within your server. This is handy if you cannot find a post or person by searching, but you know they exist on another server.
Searching for a URL like this forces your server to "notice" the profile or post.
It also works with URLs from PeerTube, PixelFed etc.

(Ironically it’s from “A Mastodon server friendly towards anti-fascists.” I guess I must be the wrong kind of anti-fascist.)
Somebody reported me to myself, y’all. How’s your day going? :)
Hint: if you don’t like my comparing Israel to Russia, go tell Israel to stop acting like Russia.
(And find out how the fediverse works before you go making an arse of yourself trying to censor me on my own personal instance.)
Please boost for visibility: Global Accessibility Awareness day (#GAAD) is on May 19th. I’d like everyone that can to turn off your monitor, or close the laptop lid and connect a keyboard, or close your eyes, and turn on your OS screen reader, and use your computer with it. How does it make you feel? Do you know enough keyboard commands? Does it give you enough info? Does it make you enjoy using the computer? Do you feel productive? Why or why not? #a11y #screenreader #blind

I just noticed "foreach" on npm is controlled by a single maintainer.
I also noticed they let their personal email domain expire, so I bought it before someone else did.
I now control "foreach" on NPM, and the 36826 projects that depend on it.
I make small things.
This is my personal Mastodon.
