The issue was docker-related and I spent an embarrassingly long time trying to restore the broken db afterwards. No luck.

Good news is I’ve now got automated nightly backups running and it was my own personal instance…so the only person losing data was me.

Time for an , I suppose.

I work as a product manager in the finance space, building cool ways to send and receive money.

I love the outdoors, and get my exercise through road cycling and hiking mainly.

My mastodon instance is self-hosted, and I devote a lot of my time to learning and hosting other services.

I’m a cat dad. A beer lover. Motorcycles are cool.
