Jumped right back in. Still plenty of improvements to be made, but these two models are already best friends. Shoutout to this program for continuing to function, also

This'll be a thread but I'm waiting until I have a version modeled off reference to start it. I'm sure I can do 3D sculpting, I just need to pretend I'm going to put a theme park on it when I'm done

just bal and su cuddles (they/them and she/her respectively)

Gave ShapeLab a shot in VR today! In addition to being able to save files and sculpt shapes without crashing, it allowed me to model my (currently very incomplete and proportionally inaccurate) shirtless self in a seasonally appropriate spooky environment

Star Wars: Obi-Wan miniseries/Rebels: "Twin Suns" 

Obi-Wan, fresh off his adventure where he gives Leia her famous holster, reunites with Qui-Gon Jin's force ghost who says "Shall we get started?"; together they begin work on a grand plan for Obi-Wan to get struck down by Darth Vader to become more powerful than he can possibly imagine (to send posthumous messages to young Luke). The plan involves an ancient Jedi ritual that, as a side effect, gradually facemorphs Obi-Wan into Alec Guinness

Thanks to everyone who's been showing up to streams; I couldn't have done this without the support of a kind and patient audience

(mainly I'm excited because with this milestone in my rearview I can stream uninteresting minigames without stressing about viewership metrics :v )

(the game is legit fun so far for a singleplayer freak like myself; no massive story mode, but I like having a list of individual battles I can throw myself at, and being able to jump around the timeline works well considering I haven't fully caught up yet)

zzzzzwha? Oh! In slightly over 1 hour (~10:00 AM PDT) I'll be continuing Lilac's journey through Freedom Planet 2's Adventure Mode, visiting previously-unseen-by-us parts of Avalice and attempting Battledome challenges to learn more about their past! twitch.tv/lobst

scalie.club admin, no longer shutting down 

As the title says, scalie.club is no longer shutting down, it will remain active for the foreseeable future.

RunnIng the 'tootctl statuses remove' command (to remove remote posts by users not followed by anyone on scalie.club) shrank the database by over 1.5 gigabytes, removing the immediate obligation to upgrade. The can's been kicked down the road, but again, the existence of options beyond "upgrade or die" makes that possibility more reasonable.

I could have handled this situation far more gracefully, and for that I have to thank everyone for their patience as I dealt with this, but especially scalie.club's active users (of which I now know there are slightly more than two) and those who provided consolation and advice throughout this trial: @wolfteeth, @xipher, and @toydragon.

Thanks again, everyone, and here's to a bright future of shady business in the scalie clubhouse <3

scalie.club admin, (+no longer probable) ending 

After a couple of emails with Hugo of masto.host (which didn't even occur to me at first, I'm too used to dealing with corporations) it seems the problem stems from our database being absurdly large for an instance of our size due to a large amount of old posts from remote instances stored locally. No definite solution's been nailed down yet, but now that I know there are options for dealing with this I'm far from throwing in the towel on this one

scalie.club admin, (probable) ending 

Masto.host (completely understandably) ending their legacy price program has me seriously considering shutting scalie.club down, at least as a Mastodon site. I love the friends I've made and the communities we've interacted with through the lifetime of this site, but I think we're down to two active users, and $19 per month is too much on my income for hosting two people on an extension of a social media platform I no longer personally support as a whole
