Pinned toot

I should have a pinned message to new users.

Welcome to social.privacytools.io everyone! If you have any questions feel free to mention me in a post or DM and I'd be happy to answer them!

Also, adding a profile picture, bio, and an post will go a long way towards discovering new and interesting people in the fediverse 😄

Friendly reminder: is a great project to contribute your otherwise idle computing power.

boinc.berkeley.edu

You can set complex scheduling options, either by time of day, battery level, non-BOINC CPU usage, mouse and keyboard activity and so on. This way, it won't take up all your resources when you're compiling or playing videogames.

You can also configure it to only take a percentage of the CPU, a specific core count, or only allow it to run in bursts.

@win10ltsc You kinda have to follow people to get more than just a few people in your feed. You get just the basic guys on your instance by default, but if you follow people other than them, your feed will get busier.

as a way to find people who share your interests. I've never gotten the mass follow thing to work, but just grab a few people who look cool?

Aha I forgot I could hide my following list from other users. Hopefully that worked.
