i'm not finding anything post-migration in the steering archives, sysadmin
archives, or theforum archives.  i'm aware of the conversations before the
migration, but nothing since.  william's comment seemed to indicate there
was some recent (very?) discussion about it.

let's not forget that evolt.org is currently not being invoiced for the
hosting of weo, which is currently sucking up about 20gigs of data transfer
each month:


i'm not saying i'm going to invoice.  i consider that *my* contribution to
the community.   but, let's not get in a hurry to increase our monthly
expenditures without figuring out how to cover the expenses that we already
have.  not complaining, just my 2¢.

by using the cc for payments, we could also be earning a cash back dividend
as well.
