Wow, I made a real n00b mistake during a upgrade - didn't shut down all the applications using it (hello ). As a result the restore was not fully successful (rows were inserted after table creation but before constraints/sequences were added resulting in duplicate keys). Second time was the charm.

Sent a potentially CLM email. CLM is my personal acronym for "Career Limiting Move", which is in turn a euphemism for "telling an idiot colleague how you really feel".

Who knew that the hardest part of the SDLC was simply organising meetings?

A friend asked me if I knew any good web designers and I said “Tim Berners-Lee” and now they aren’t talking to me anymore.

In the light of the debacle, I decided to take another look at matrix/synapse/homeserver.
