    Is this the network equivalent of Yin and Yang, or Darkness and Light
    being the same?

    Perhaps it is like an old joke:

    "How many Microsoft programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?"
    "None, they just make darkness the new standard."

    I guess, if uptime is a measure of your promised availability, then if
    you promise total unavailability, your uptime is 100% if no-one can
    reach you during the measured period.

    Not terribly useful, however, and likely to get breached, when those
    with means want to find out what you're hiding.
