I finally got around to importing the pg_dump of the `mastodon` database I took last October when I moved hosting providers... only to find the set of instances had significantly changed since the dump was taken. Also I couldn't log in. So I deleted it and started afresh. Hello again!
Last time I had the @ben account (because that's my name, and I have the entire server as my namespace) but I think it looked weird seeing such a common name when I was mentioned in other toots. (Or posts now?) So I changed it to @ogham, which I think I'm more known as anyway.
