Basically, don't be an asshole.
folks, queer.party has been upgraded to Mastodon 3.4.4.
With this, Postgres 9.6 was end-of-life and needed upgraded, so we are now also upgraded to Postgres 14.
the database upgrade is why queer.party has been down since like 1PM GMT, because the database stuff took literally like seven hours to finish
i knew there was a reason i didn't like postgres. why the fuck can't it be as simple as mysqlupgrade, where you don't need a copy of the previous version's binaries to upgrade.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
