Significant donations in kind (ie bandwidth) from evolt.org.uk - 100GB in
October alone.

Can someone please do a status report on the donations header? Last I

This needs doing.

I also think we could do a "Give evolt.org a Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanza/
other midwinter festival of your choice  present" thing.
