Thanks Robert.

I'm a developer based in Cambridge, UK, and have been working on search engines for 10 years
or so.  Up until a couple of years ago I was mainly using closed-source implementations, and
discovering lucene/solr was a breath of fresh air (you can see the code!  you can fix bugs
yourself!).  After failing to convince my employer to switch to open source, I decided to
set out on my own, and now work as a consultant specialising in search and monitoring software.

I divide my time between being coding and looking after my two daughters, and occasionally
am allowed out to the pub.

Thanks for voting me on to the team - it's an honour and a privilege, and I look forward to
contributing as best I can.
