The server ran out of disk space.
I've asked the host to upgrade the VPS ... but that won't be instant.
(It will also cost more) which will give us more space, and RAM (so should help performance too)
I'm also going to look at alternative options for user files, as they are all just on the server right now.
Apologies for the outage ... but it might happen again until I get us more space sorted.
@ab3xu no, I haven't got anything for donations at the moment.
So far the costs have been covered by the host (Mythic Beasts) giving me a discount, and @G5BK donating enough to cover the initial costs of domain and basic VPS.
Now we seem to be growing more, it looks like I might need to expand the capacity.
If people are willing to donate, that's great, but not required.
I like it here and will happily donate to help with running costs.
That said, I wonder if the RSGB legacy fund might be worth looking into. https://rsgb.org/main/about-us/committees/legacy-committee/ I think the benefits to the community are clear!
@M0YNG I can understand the quandry. I'm sure fundraising and bookkeeping are not what you had in mind when you started mastodon.radio
