Our Gracious Hosts and Blogging Software

We recently upgraded to MT 4.23, which is the latest version. We got onto this release as soon as it was available - in fact our contacts at Six Apart emailed the actual code to us before it was up on their website. That's customer service for you!
The companies above pay our rents or mortgages and we appreciate it. We hope you'll stop by their sites and see what they've got to offer.
Have you got a smart company that could use some more visits by the sophisticated readers of a blog like ReadWriteWeb's? Drop us a line and let's talk.
