[tahoe-dev] allmydata.com grid full

Hi Andrej,

   Allmydata.com could definitely be providing better status updates, 
but unfortunately we don't have as many people working full-time on the 
production grid as we'd like. On the positive side, we have never lost 
any data on the production grid though we have had a couple periods of 
inaccessibility. We should be adding more capacity over the next few 
weeks to keep ahead of the influx of data, plus we are planning a 
garbage collection run to free up some more space.

Hope this helps,
Peter
