Hey there! I'm Somnius, a white tiger living in SF. I code websites, play indie & rhythm games, love all kinds of music, and turned vegan in the middle of this year.

Things I advocate for: furries, non-monogamy, sex positivity, gender identity, LGBT+ rights, democratic socialism.

All of you here inspire me so much with the amazing things you create. I have so much to learn!

Merveilles is going to have its third anniversary this year! It's exciting to think that it's been this long already. I've seen some really cool stuff in here :3

I'm also planning to migrate the instance to Hometown over this holiday! I'll post more details on @maru when they're more solidified.

Merveilles meta, updates via different account 

Hey folks! From now on, I'll be posting the Merveilles expense reports and server updates via @maru instead of through me. That way, there's a more clear split between my personal posts and posts specifically about the instance. Please follow that account if you'd like to see further updates! 🖤

It's the end of the summer, and days are starting to get cooler. I'm settled into my house, and I can finally get started on our Hometown migration! Check out the Trello for more info, and I'll keep you updated on when that will happen. Cheers, all <3

The desk setup in my house is all coming together now!

A few weeks ago I built a pretty nuts computer for games, that's on the left. On the right is my setup for work. It's been real nice having those separate spaces!

Also: zoom in on the bottom of the window for a surprise :3c

Hey folks! Going to be updating from Mastodon 3.4.0 to 3.4.1 rq, should be no downtime. I'll let you know when we're all good!

Updated my profile pic & background to use the Jonathan Vair Duncan image I commissioned!

It's the same tiger here, though. Just a new "face". :3

Had a nice relaxing vacation but work and house stuff has me a bit bogged down, appreciate all your patience on incoming potential updates 🖤

I wish all of you well!
