If you want to preview how a post looks on Mastodon without anyone else seeing it, select a visibility of "Direct" and toot it. As long as you haven't @-ed anyone, only you will be able to see this post.
It will be a DM to yourself, which means it shows you exactly what the published post looks like, but keeps it hidden.
When you're happy to let others see it, use the "Delete & re-draft" option (in the post's "..." menu) to change the visibility to a more public setting. Then just toot it again, and it will be visible.
(If you want to make multiple changes, just keep DMing the post to yourself and redrafting until you're happy. When you're happy, redraft one more time and change the visibility to a non-direct setting.)

🌹 Another of my favorite musicians is gone. Learned to appreciate on a weeks long camping trip across the country with an old friend in the days before cell phones and ubiquitous internet access. Listening to her albums on cassette measured the passing of hours on the road and was the introduction to her music #Nanci_Griffith #music #kstinson
A common theme of my latest toots is that I believe in code audits. In peeking under the hood to see if an app's doing anything undesirable, rather than trust a sandbox to prevent it. Which they don't.
You wonder why I like to discuss how the various components of elementary OS works? (For quite a while now I've been focused on GCC)
Apple's latest moves serves to illustrate the importance of this: End-to-end encryption or differential privacy doesn't protect you if your endpoint isn't yours!

One of the first really nice SBD's I got when I first started taping; got this gem in my first batch of trades, possibly this source, too.
This one's peak "Anthem" period; pretty much the entirety of Cryptical/Other One/New Potato Caboose is on here. Some nice, raw old Avalon footage.
