Finally got around to upgrading this instance; now looking into migrating my primary account here and starting it up for real!

Okay, the big kid is squared away at preschool in the afternoons, and now I have a couple of hours a day to actually work on things. Time to get this sucker launched.

As I start trying to spin this thing up I'm curious about how I can create local tags. I've taken a quick look at the actual masto codebase to see if I can support this sort of stuff natively, but wow, it's a huge mess: a pile of js and ruby dependencies and a dozen frameworks. So I'm curious if I can just shoehorn in my own tag nomenclature; for example, using '!' as a local hashtag.

Hello, world. Whether I'm addressing this world or the wider one remains an open question.
