When you arrive in the office in the morning and there is cake and everybody is asking "Did somebody forgot to lock his computer or is it somebody's birthday?"

My Postgres was to old (9.3) for the latest Mastodon upgrade.

So I upgraded my Postgres today and now I am back online after 4 days abstinence.

Feels good to be back in the fediverse 😀

Did I miss something?
