My cat almost fell off my desk and I got tail whipped in the throat. For being covered in fur that tail has a surprising sting.

What if my sweater is in fact not getting eaten by moths but it’s just made with bad yarn that falls apart? I’m just following the clues here, as the inky sweater that seems to get more holes every year I have to 🤔

Ah there it is. We're back. If anyone was curious, the rails cache had some constants cached in it that no longer existed in v3.0.1. Peeping at the logs showed that one. Rails.cache.clear fixed it right up.

Of course sunday the 5th is the correct day to upgrade to mastodon 3.0.1. Because I'm sitting in front of my laptop doing nothing but watching robot trains with a 3 year old.
