The mastodon instance went down because it ran out of disk space. I fixed it for now, but I didn't track down the entire problem yet, so it might happen again.
The disk space problem seems to be getting worse, so until I figure out what to do, the instance may intermittently go down.
Disk space has been freed up by removing preview cards. Thanks to @flyingsquirrel for helping me figure it out.
