    This got such tremendous response and readership it needs to be bumped back to the top. Yes, Chaz is leaving.
    We need a replacement by August. I need to hear from candidates much sooner than that. E-mail me if you need more information.
  6. If you wouldn't mind, where is good ole Chaz off to?

    This is a tremendous place to work with a great reputation. And yes, Rusty is, apparently, the best.
