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.
