Merveilles Upgrades, minimal downtime 

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!

We are hosting a kind of cooking event this week! We encourage each one of you to share one recipe between now and May 23nd. To participate, you must create a dedicated page on your personal website with the complete instructions, with at least one image, and the cooking time. The recipe cannot include animal products, of course. Please use the hashtag when sharing a toot of your recipe!

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!

Made myself a Cosmopolitan tonight after looking up drinks that required cranberry. It's stronger than I expected, and pretty tasty!

Also learned about how Cointreau is a type of triple sec and that had me thinking to myself: "It's only Cointreau if it's from the Cointreau region of France, otherwise it's just sparkling triple sec." ;3

Thanks to everyone for keeping us going! It's sincerely appreciated.

Cheers, and I hope you all are safe and sound!

furry, lgbtq+ history 

On a recent a nostalgia trip, I re-read the queer furry comics "Associated Student Bodies" (nsfw+explicit) and "Circles" (nsfw+non-explicit).

I don't think I would have been as comfortable being queer or as knowledgable about queer history without them.

Same thing with Kyell Gold's "Waterways" (also nsfw+explicit), which helped me come to terms with my own sexuality when I was younger. The main character being in a similar situation to mine really resonated with me.

Hey folks! How are you all doing? :3

This tiger's been tied up between work, house hunting, and Valheim. Looking for houses in this area sure is complicated, but hopefully we get a place soonish! 🤞

Been loving how Valheim plays, it's a nice relaxing space with an eventual goal that lets you get to it however you like. It's exactly what I wanted out of this mix of Minecraft and Animal Crossing!

imposter syndrome 

I’m reading Essentialism and I found one of the reasons I stopped coming to merveilles so often. This is an amazing community full of wonderful people, and a source of inspiration of all kinds. I consider myself lucky to be a part of it and contribute to it.

This forest is growing out of control. There are now different height levels and both characters can walk on specific terrain, so you have to swap between them to reach some otherwise inaccessible places.

The lagomorph can hop on logs and the batracian can swim. It's not pictured here because the GIF would be huge, but it works!
