server broke

so something happened during an update to my server infrastructure for, the system rebooted while it was doing something, and it left the server in an irreparable state
for the foreseeable future, there will no longer be a instance, and i can't see myself going to all the trouble of running a mastodon instance again
i don't have the experience, time, energy or resources to adequately maintain such a, well, mastodon of a software system, especially one so fiddly and difficult to set back up after a server crash
all of my other services, games and websites are simple enough to be put back online with just a few commands and some config files, but that's not the case for mastodon
