The estimable Holland Smith, who has been the technical brains behind RBC, has a new job that leaves him no time to help us. So we’re looking for a new nuts-and-bolts operator. There’s a small amount of routine maintenance, including running the tiny revenue side of the operation, plus the challenge of getting comments back up with a strong enough comment-spam filter to avoid crashing our server. Please email me if you’re interested.
In the meantime, hearty thanks to Holland from all of us.
