It is with a surreal sense of melancholy I announce that on July 15th, 2020, I will be shutting down the last of our user hosting. It has been a long, winding journey for my peers and I. The research projects and personal things will continue here, but it’s time. There are a few branches at the root of this decision: the departure of customers due to their own ends of operation, prospectives that do not follow through with basic requests for information such as amperage requirements or IP justifications eating time I could spend elsewhere getting a serious client, and ultimately COVID causing an inability to spin up new customers. This marks the end of an era for me, and I’ll spend the rest of this post looking back on this journey.
