[tahoe-dev] allmydata.com grid full
secorp at allmydata.com

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,
