    Couple questions here. Do we pay this accountant monthly now? Also, I heard that we have consolidated to one or two boxes. Does that reflect a lower bill through FDC?
    Might be a good idea to update the monthly expenses on the donation meter, some people (me included) do/do not donate when it appears that the monthly bills have been met.

    We had to pay an accountant + consultant because of the NPO thing, it was a requirement i think. June was the last month we payed for an accountant though, from now own accountant services are going to be free. As for the second FDC box, TheAnswer and Oru decided to keep the second Denver box for backups/clustering stuff.


    But yeah, we should probably change our monthly goals to reflect our costs more accurately (they should be between $1k and $1.1k atm) and maybe even consider implementing a monthly donation limit.

    seems the monthly donation goal needs to be raised?

    oh, and kudos to whomever negotiated that $200 off the server fee!
