Fuckin management failure is what it is. More hardware was theirs for
the asking, along with time to administer it. Nobody outside the Inner
Circle has any idea what happened -- Zach Joress, Aveek Datta, and
Chris Ueland, I think.

I could have done more to make live while it was alive --
answered more tickets, been better at support -- but the fuckin
bastards didn't give us staff a chance. They simply declared Monolith
was over and done with, and there wasn't a goddamned thing anybody
could do to convince them otherwise.

I note that <URL:> mentions that the
services the vast majority of people were using are still up -- ATHOME
and FREED -- and will continue to be if possible.
