So, it seems that while ADC2 is not over exactly, it’s the end for PackRat.

Right. I’ve decided to reveal bits of what this particular website is about in a piecemeal fashion over the course of the next few days. Since becoming self-employed, I’ve spent my time doing mostly two things: trying to get more paid work lined up for the next months, and getting ready an app for this [...]
