Ted will be sorely missed. I had the pleasure of meeting him at several pubcons.
The first being Orlando and the last being Boston.
His ability to explain things and patience when dealing with perpetual newbies like me was unparalleled.
Some of his posts are required reading for both me and my colleagues - when we start new sites, when we mess up old sites and in general when we feel we've strayed and need to get back to best practices.
He will be missed by many.
