BTW, I rather resent the comment somebody made above that all an arbiter does is to set the clocks and tell the computer to make the draw
Absolutely. They tidy up afterwards also.
More than that too. I lost on time in the 4NCL a few years back. "I've lost on time", I conceded glumly to my opponent. Just then, an Arbiter passed by, paused, and said: "You've lost on time".

Their skill-set is broader than you think
