This is a pretty compelling reason. Esp. if you are writing open source code.

Hello everyone!

All this tooting has made this server fill up its available disk, so I need to restart it with more disk space.

During this I'll also do some other invasive maintenance, so it'll be down for a few minutes. But never fear, it will be back!

Speaking of, just made sure we had full coverage of backups according to best practices, so I guess I can see if we get listed with the cool instances.

And a 2.9.2 upgrade coming soon here too! Short downtime in a little while.

Interesting distribution of bandwidth usage for official #openstreetmap tiles.
People in Germany, France and Poland use OSM more than in the USA.
Big countries like Japan, India, China or Iran really don't use OSM that much.
Germany uses as much bandwidth as the "bottom" 200 countries (in terms of OSM usage).

Based on this data from the OSM foundation: git.openstreetmap.org/dns.git/
