But somehow AMD is always btfo'd by Intel when it comes to gayming and overall popularity. Why? Why is gayming special in regards to its processor workload?

String comment = "In this thread we discuss Mastodon and other alternative social networks.
>What is mastodon?
It's a federated micro blogging platform. This means anyone can set up a server with a specific theme, rules and moderation. People with accounts in different instances can follow and interact with each other as they do with email.
>How does it work?
Under the hood Mastodon implements the OStatus and ActivityPub APIs. This means it can interact with other services implementing those APIs, such as GNU Social.
>How o setup and account?
Pick and instance you like and create an account, only username and email are required. Not all instances require email confirmation.
Some instances are:
https://mstdn.io/ (Also very big)
https://iscute.moe/ (A very cute instance, no valid email required)
https://social.lainon.life/ (Cyberpunk is duck, no valid email required)
>How do I use it?
There are three main ways of discovering content.
1. After logging in, on the rightmost column you will have two options "Local Timeline" and "Federated Timeline". The first is a feed of posts, or "toots" on your instance, the second on all instances yours is connected to. Click on either and look for something interesting.
2. On the leftmost column use the search field to query for hashtags or users.
3. Find another instance you like, go to it's website and read the timeline. It will be akin to checking a boards catalog. You can then interacting with people from your instance by using their usernames ( e.g. @email@example.com).
Feel free to post usernames and follow each other.";
