Backgrounder: Joyent is a cloud hosting company and the great-grandchild of TextDrive 1.0, a company founded by Dean Allen who wrote quite a few lines of Textpattern code back then, too.
All sites of our Textpattern empire are therefore hosted with Joyent for free since the stone ages.
Last month Joyent started to charge for their service, and I am trying to revert their decision. Hence the marketing contact...
No one knows what's happening so I've been super careful to ensure that I've got regular backups going to Strongspace (compare Jeff Mancuso's responses to those of TXD and Joyent - the guy is amazing and so helpful), just in case TXD II goes belly up.
However bad TXD II is (at least in terms of communication with customers), this thread is about Joyent and their marketing communication, if one can call it that. My opinion is, once a mail like that comes through, only a short time after providing a new server on the premise of continuing lifetime hosting for Textpattern, then maybe its time to find a new home.
You definitely cannot buy the makers of Textpattern CMS. At least not all of them.
If the mobile carriers really start to enter the ad-blocking and -injecting business this might have interesting side-effects. Eg. a lot more traffic (including the ads) moving to TLS.
I wonder whether someone higher up in the food-chain (the ones with five eyes) will be happy about that.

Oracle's MySQL Workbench is a dead weight.
Currently I'm looking into dbForge Studio for MySQL (http://www.devart.com/de/dbforge/mysql/studio/) and SQLyog (https://www.webyog.com/) only to discovered that SQLyog cannot execute multiple SQL commands from one editor window at once. Hmph!
Which kind of narrows my choices, I suspect, to dbForge Studio.
