Is it just me, or is scholar.social struggling a bit? I usually get a progress bar now when I attempt to toot. Usually goes through, but not always. Getting some 502 errors as well.
@theartguy Mastodon has gotten a bit more memory-intensive over the last few versions
To make scholar.social work, it costs:
* $30 per annum for the domain name
* $60 per annum for a VPS with 1 GB of RAM
* $3 per annum for Amazon S3 (DB backup and media hosting, assuming that the average amount charged for the 4 months we've been up will continue)
The next tier up for VPS is $108 per month for 2 GB of RAM, a difference of $48
