I'm cold, wet, and miserable this morning. It's making me think about how I got here and what I can do to make myself feel better overall.

I think I should reduce the things that make me stressed out like this. Unsure what, but doing less overall sounds like a good place to start.

Been going through Waiting for Horus videos, and remembering just how damn fun it was. The only reason the game isn't playable right now is that it always required someone to manually host a master server somewhere. When it dies so does the game, but...

However, the instance has been around for a full year!!! Super psyched about that :D

I've also gotten the instance costs way down since I deleted the old external assets that had been around for ages. To keep costs down, I'll continue to do that each month.

Thanks a bunch to all the donors, and to all of you! I have a few things I need to work on, like opening up to more ways of donating and other smaller things. I'll keep you all posted! :merveilles:

One thing I forgot to correct last time: I got 25 cents less in Patreon donations than I reported last month, but the "Money left over" amount this month is the exact same as what's in the bank account for the instance!

Merveilles meta, maintenance 

Server maintenance is happening on DigitalOcean! Times are:

Start: 2020-01-07 21:00 UTC
End: 2020-01-08 01:00 UTC

This is out of my hands, but there will be some packet loss during this time while DO shifts things over!

@metasyn Hey there, welcome to Merveilles! :3

If you'd be so kind, would you mind changing your avatar to a greyscale / black and white one please? It's a small thing, but it is in our server rules!

Other than that enjoy your stay! If you have any questions, definitely let me know :D

After a long time, I have finally beaten Light Crusader. It's still one of my favorite games to this very day, and it was one of the first games I played when my family got the Genesis. Took a total of around 5ish hours!

Oh!!! I didn't know you were on the fediverse @kieran :D

Somnius boosted

I just want to say how thankful I am for the fediverse, and all the interesting new people I've met here.

I've stumbled in here when I was starting to feel alienated by the internet and social networks, I guess I'm just glad to have this space.
