Cortex is now a full-time MeFi admin

Right this very moment, Cortex is sitting at home, sans-pants, watching the flag queue, poised with the ban-hammer, bemoaning his utter lack of head-sized doughnuts. Welcome to the Land of the Lost Full-Time MetaFilter Admins, Cortex!

What's the story behind the "GoToMyPC" ads on the MeFi front page?

What's the story behind the "GoToMyPC" ads on the MeFi front page? Even for the logged-in.
I notice they are the only advertiser for that spot and that it appears for the non-members in the same place.

Is this a big new advertising deal for you, Matt, or is it a template issue? Are we being sold to again, and if so, why?

(don't know if this should be in "MeFi-related" or "etiquette/policy")

Admin duties on metafilter are a lot of work and more than a full time job.

Just so you know, I was in LA for the last couple days, unannounced (because I didn't want people to take advantage of it).

I guess it's pretty clear now that I spend my time cleaning crap off metafilter 24/7 these days, and now that I was away, maybe everyone can appreciate how much work it is to snub double-posts, fix html errors, and ban malicious, callous users. I'm not looking for an inbox of thank-yous or twenty brown-nosing comments on this thread, I just feel it's worth saying. Admin duties on metafilter are a lot of work and more than a full time job.

My first attempt at supporting myself with this site will launch on Monday. Some people may not like it. I made it as harmless and innocous as possible. It won't make me rich, but it'll hopefully provide enough money for server upgrades and upkeep. Keep the last couple days in mind if you find anything not to like about The New Thing That Launches Monday.
