“Remember that guy that gave up? Neither does anybody else.” Progress on the new Monitive has been slow as a snail in a marathon, but nevertheless the progress was there. Since the last update last year, a lot has been going on, and one day I woke up and just decided to write, even if small updates. Not only because Monitive is about transparency, but because I love writing.

It’s been a while since the new Monitive codename “Freyja” was launched in private beta, and even though a lot of things have happened, development is moving forward a bit slow than I’ve hoped. Nevertheless, I’m happy that the core monitoring engine is running smoothly and it’s a great foundation for the years to come.

Don’t worry, this isn’t an article where someone extremely adept at software testing and well-versed in industry terms is going to talk down to you. I’m a marketer first and a writer second, and no part of my career has ever involved the nitty gritty parts of building out a tech product or service to prepare it for real-life users. So if you’re completely clueless in this area, don’t worry — I’m right there with you.

Whenever I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is… well… not go over last night’s notifications on my phone. This has taken a while to get used to, but I am happy I did it. And it’s been a few years now. The first thing I do is get up and go to the bathroom. Then, I go into the kitchen, and brew my first coffee of the day. While the coffee is brewing, I raise the window rolls, turn on some music, and make sure everything is ready to have a great start to the day.
