Sorry- meant to get this but didn't.

It's all in or near:

Evolt.org services go through ~250GB a month[1], which @ $3.50/Gig comes
to $10500 per annum.

Not all of that is cold hard cash (actually, none of it has been to date
although Ron will be preparing invoices rsn)


[1] This excludes CSS-D which I have no figure for as the eouk box only
reports on data going through its normal mailserver... which we've
replaced to enable mailman to work.

 become mere sounds, their etymology being
 buried, like so many of the earth's marvels,
 beneath the dust of habit." - Salman Rushdie
