Site Finances: July 2015 – January 2019
January 4, 2019 11:59 AM - BoerumHillScott
So I have not been very diligent about documenting the site finances, but then again we no longer have expense or donations as large as the first few years.

Moving forward with a new hosting provider, the ongoing costs will be lower:
$35/year for hosting
$26/year for domain registration (estimate, pre-paid through 2021)
$12/year for backup storage (approximate)
==
$73/year total

And thank you for the three donations.
I guess I should do the report more often.

I think I have said this before: by default I don't say who made the donations, but I will acknowledge/confirm if you want.

Wow, you people (or at least 4 of you) are awesome.
The balance is now positive $0.65, and all of our bills are paid through November.

Now, please stop sending me money.

Just saw this. I would have contributed but am now off the hook. Thanks to those who paid up!

We have just about enough to buy Brownstoner off whoever has it these days.

Thanks, bhs!!!!! so sorry I'm too late to donate. I'll take you and rc out to dinner instead, as thanks for taking care of this site, and for having such great (and generous!) parties!
