The grant I was using to pay for meek-azure ran out at the end of 2016.
It was for $10,000 and it paid for meek-azure and meek-google (until the
latter was shut down) throughout 2016. I can support it personally for
maybe one more month but after that I'll have to shut it down.

>From these graphs you can see that meek continues to be very popular,
with both backing bridges constant pushing against the rate limits we
imposed to control costs. I had hoped that by now we would find a way to
pay for sustained deployment, but it hasn't happened.
If someone wants to take over the service and raise funds I'm happy to
let you. I've been able to manage keeping on top of monthly invoices and
all that, but it's not my strong suit.

I don't have any problem with continuing to run the bridge that the CDN
forwards to, as that is much less expensive than the CDN, like $20/month
rather than $600/month.
