I'm a community manager and chief [bad] pun officer for Stack Exchange, following two years of service as a community elected moderator on Stack Overflow. Beyond that, I'm:

  • A husband and dad
  • A competent programmer
  • A world traveler
  • Not a teapot, and I have proof!

If you need to reach me, it's tpost shift-2 stackoverflow, but please use this form for common support needs. Note, I do not use services such as Linkedin, please don't try to add me there, it just creates noise.

Eek, you might have dissolved the enamel over the ceramic glaze - how old is the cast iron tub?
