The bot which connects Gitter and IRC,
and the bot that applies notifications from Stackoverflow to Gitter
are both going to go down shortly.
The short reason is that I have lost my allocation to the national cloud computing resource that was hosting them.
The longer version involves someone making some interesting para-political choices resulting in all researchers in my state loosing access to said resource (or so I strongly suspect).
I have access to other resources that can host them,
and it shouldn’t take me too long to bring them back online, but I am really busy right now.
I will hopefully be able to bring them back on the weekend.
