@jcorgan (1) if you follow someone (and they don't block you or anything), both their public and private posts will appear in your Home feed as well as any replies mentioning people you also follow; (2) the local timeline includes all public posts and replies from people on your instance (no private posts); (3) the federate timeline includes all public posts and replies from anyone followed by someone on your server (including those followed by bots).
Two things I think underappreciated about Bitcoin scaling in the near future: (1) Schnorr signature aggregation is a huge deal because what's vastly more important than the size of a block is *how many signatures a full node needs to verify per second*, and aggregation reduces it dramatically, (2) sig aggregation is a non-trivial endeavour, to say the least - it's *much* harder than just implementing a Schnorr signature (which has benefits on its own, to be clear).
Hello World, I'd like you to meet ecide - an R-alike UI for elliptic curve calculations. This is packaged with btcdeb as a separate binary. You must run ./configure --enable-dangerous for it to work.
