@mo @d3z @paddy Just thinking of who pays for the host. I’ve set up Mattermost before and it’s easy enough. Some of our teams use Rocket Chat self hosted too and seem happy.

@d3z @mo @paddy That’s back to hosting though. And I reckon people would miss the memes and gifs, and Rebecca videos on IRC. I’d just stay on Slack because it’ll all blow over most likely.

@mo I did a little work for them back in March and funding was “coming soon” then. It still is. And yeah, I’m starting to wonder if they can afford me if funding does show up anyway.

@mo I definitely wasn't offered a million dollars.

TBH nothing is set in stone yet - it's a startup and my joining is contingent on funding. But the decision to quit has been made and I'm going /somewhere/.

Working again tonight.

@mo I told someone else I’d like to take them up on their offer.

Me: [works a month of late nights migrating 30+ sites to new servers that i said up front was a bad idea and would break things]

Work: Some minor things broke, you're shit. Also, we know you haven't moved them all yet (why so slow?) but we need you to go ahead and work with this other company to move them and all our other sites again to their servers.

Dear Masto, do I quit now or later this afternoon?

work moaning 

The people who supply the firewall to the people who run it for us fucked up and the firewall license went invalid without alerting anyone and it shut off traffic on Sunday morning for an hour and please explain why this is my fault? I need a new job.

If they make your job into juggling with chainsaws, they have to expect to get cut sometimes.
