news from the world of freshbooks

Ok, the practical part first: FreshBooks is hiring a lot of technical-type positions, and in particular I'm looking for a junior-to-intermediate sysadmin. If you know anyone who might be interested and who can work out of our Toronto office, send them to me!

Crazy FreshBooks thing #2: I just realized that I am now non-executive employee #5 here. (We've had a couple people who started before me leave -- I was #9 when I started.) #5 of 40 or so! Wow.

And while I was counting, I realized that my bio is way, way out of date:

Rich is our systems and network infrastructure guy, keeping the webservers and databases running smoothly. Rich has spent the past decade honing his skills with Web applications on open-source platforms, and recently moved with his wife from Ottawa to Toronto in order to get closer to the heart of Canada's Internet industry. In his free time, he blogs, plays the cello and Irish flute, and throws rocks at houses.
We didn't just move here, I don't curl anymore, I don't have the cello anymore. I need a new bio! Anyone feel creative? I can't promise to use what you suggest but I just might...
