Ok. Thanks for clarifying that. In that case, my interest is mainly in
the LAD site and for that particularly in the LAC audio and video

Certainly. It hadn't even occured to me that the la.o would ever have
anything other than volunteers and I would not expect any payment for
whatever help I end up giving. If the server moves to a linux host (if
my impression that a mac is being used is wrong, please correct me) I
can help with sysadminery. But, again, I wouldn't want to be the sole
person responsible.
