Jeff and I were just talking. He has the real network expertise in our organization, so I wanted to make sure he was on board before we offered to do anything. Our company, Polycot Consulting, does selective hosting - it's not our main gig but Jeff is proficient. As I said, we might be willing to do manageable stuff pro bono, like host primary sites but not a number of nodes. Otherwise we can offer expertise, help figure out the tech and the costs if you want to take it elsewhere. The main thing is that we want to support the effort and we have a clue... which is to say we might be able to contribute to sustainability in the fall and thereafter. ~ Jon Jon Lebkowsky CEO/Catalyst, Polycot http://www.polycot.com
