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!

Of course, please send feedback and questions about that my way, I"m very open to hearing what you all think!

Looks like I hopped over a month, my bad!

Between day-job work ramping up and moving into my new house, I've been a super busy tiger.

However! The Hometown poll is still at the top of my mind, and around 70% of you who voted in the poll voted "yes". That's great!

I'll chat about this a bit more with the admins and see the work involved, but I've heard you all: seems like most of you folks are in favor of us rolling onto Hometown. I'll keep you all updated!

Gosh, my life has been nothing but moving and house stuff for the past few weeks. It's exciting, but exhausting.

How are you all? You doing well? :3

Hey all, a friend of mine just lost their job, and they're looking for front-end web or engineering manager roles. Remote is a must. If anyone has any openings, please let me know!

Hey all! I'm about to roll out some updates to our instance, upgrading to 3.4.0, and this time this requires me to turn off the instance for just a few minutes. I need to do this to resolve some database indexing.

I'm going to do that within the next 15mins or so!

Hey everyone, what're you all up to?

As for me, things are kinda nuts here! Almost done closing on a house, day-job work is ramping up a lot, and I'm making my way through watching Final Fantasy XV.

I've also been playing a whole lot of Synth Riders, a VR rhythm game, for exercise. Been enjoying that quite a bit more than Beat Saber, I feel like I"m moving my body way more in that game :D

Hope you all are doing well. Looks like the results in the Hometown poll are shaping up nicely, with most of the folks who voted in favor of moving to it. Check out the link in the Announcements on the web client on Merveilles to see the poll!

I extended the deadline for the poll for another week, to give more folks an additional chance to check it out and give feedback. Stay safe, get vaccinated if you can, and keep on keeping on!
