Dear Team,

I have good news, Rabbi Rob Thomas (robt at cymru.com) is going to cover the costs associated with 
keeping meek alive. 

So far I have setup 2 new accounts with Amazon and Azure and working to confirm the functionality.

Cloudfront is working fine and i'm trying to resolve issues with the Azure CDN. Is there a ticket I can update
with these details? I think I should also bring up a backend server (bridge) and share 
the new config lines for the Tor Browser Bundle. I'm hoping to get all this done by Monday or sooner.

Thank you David for keeping this service operational for so long and thank you Rob for keeping it alive!

All the best,
