Thanks and Farewell to Selden and Rich!
At the end of January, we bid a fond farewell to two longtime members of the CLASSE-IT team: Rich Sholtys and Selden Ball. Rich has worked at CLASSE for 29 years and has played critical roles in building our networking and our Windows infrastructure. Selden joined the CLASSE-IT group in 1974 (having previously worked as a research assistant) and has worn many hats over the years, most notably VMS and Tru64 system administrator, CESR control cluster architect, and security expert. Selden and Rich have made innumerable contributions to the success of the lab. We will miss their boundless expertise, gentle wisdom, and good humor.
