@Gargron I’m getting desktop layout for Mastodon on my iPad. Is this a bug?

Although, I have seen rumours that Alienware got Threadripper overclocked to 3.8GHz on all cores so single thread won't be much slower than a Ryzen 7 1800x.

Giving Alienware an exclusive on AMD Threadripper (at least among large manufacturers) seems like a really strange decision. Threadripper is meant to be for workstations, the only "gaming" feature is more PCIe lanes for more graphics cards. arstechnica.co.uk/gadgets/2017

I registered an account on toot.cat but am oddly hesitant to switch over. I guess partly because I tried to switch instance once already and came back because of glitches, and don't want to mess people around again in case I change my mind.

The mastodon stages:
1. new users flow in and are amazed and/or flummoxed by the UI and its affordances

2. some users stay, finding that they rather enjoy the aforementioned affordances, and the overall lack of twitter shenanigans

3. suddenly, you discover you have things to say on the nature of sexuality and interpersonal relationships that you never knew you were uncomfortable talking about until you came here

4. there will be hugs, for those who want or need them

Hey to everyone who is new and registered their account on mastodon.social:

Welcome! I hope you have a good time here!

If you find that harrassment is too common or isn't dealt with thoroughly enough, you can register on another, safer server with a code of conduct.

Seems most of the recent new users wound up on Mastodon.Social. An instance with over 70k users can be intimidating. Instances are essentially their own communities, and there are many great communities to be found among Mastodon's 1400+ instances.

If you want to find a new instance, you can check out instances.mastodon.xyz/

If that list is intimidating, you can use this

If you would like to recommend users join your instance, please do so in response to this post.
