* What hardware do we have, and how did we
  pay for it.

* How much did we pay for our licenses, and how were
   they funded ("private donor" could be enough for that).

* What's the cost of the bandwidth we use, and how are
  we paying for that (if only to discover how much of a
  debt of thanks we owe to Starkmedia).

* How much of the above was donated in cash (which
  we spent on the things in question), and how much
  in kind (ie "Joe Donor transferred 2 CF5 server
  licenses to us, covering weo & meo").

* When each of the above arrived (so we can handle
  depreciation and ultimately replace them without
  having to fundraise each time).

In other words, an asset audit and tracking of
regular outgoings.

Doesn't need to be now, but will be needed before
the NFP kicks in as part of basic financial management.

Treasurer is not an easy job...
