I want to say that running an instance is not profitable - most of them are run at a loss because most don't have Patreons. This isn't a business - this isn't politics - this is a hobby, a service offered so friends can be made and a space offered to do so.

I guarantee you no successful instance is doing this for "clout" or for profit or good PR. That's simply no good motivator for running one and the ones that start that way always, and always will, crash and burn.

I am going to accept the position as Director of Threat Intelligence. The company is a good one to be with... and the new role as I have discussed with the CEO is an amazing opportunity for me to grow into a proper leadership role.

BlackFireSec will still exist for the purposes of maintaining existing clients, but will be largely in Spacedock waiting for future relaunch opportunities.

This is not a failure. Had I not done BlackFireSec, I would not have had this opportunity, and that makes the past 1.5 years very worthwhile.

I like the smell of Git merge conflicts in the morning

A friend of mine asked if I could clean his PC.

His PC doesn't need cleaning, it needs a fucking exorcism.

Anyone else feel really scared when they cough in a supermarket?
