If less than half of those currently directly subscribed to the HBD sent in a mere $5.00, the HBD would be able to easily meet its annual expenses, with room to spare for next year. Please consider it. Financial Projection As of 13 Jun 2010 Projected 2010 Budget $3305.65 Expended against projection $1899.76 Projected Excess/(Shortfall) $ 38.08 As always, donors and donations are publicly acknowledged and accounted for on the HBD web page.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sat, 19 Jun 2010 11:38:29 -0400 (EDT) From: "Pat Babcock" <pbabcock at hbd.org> Subject: HBD, Inc. News... Greetings, Beerlings! Take me to your lager... Many thanks to those who ponied up to the aid of the HBD. In just a short time, the HBD has moved from underwater to able to breathe again. Thanks to all who have come to our aid! On that note, there have been some changes in how we expense certain items to help flatten out our annual expenses and limit my personal exposure. Since, as opposed to certain other entities in the news these days, we do actually strive to be transparent in our machinations, I have provided a "blurb" on the HBD Finances page explaining this and why, even though we are showing a positive bank balance for the end of the year, the HBD's financial condition is not considered green. Also, because the HBD traffic is reduced, causing posts to languish overly long in the queue, I am reducing by about half the hurdle bar on the Digest's size-to-send. Finally, things at work *should* be slowing down for a bit soon, and I plan to do some much needed and long overdue revisions to the Digesting software and to the web site. Assuming I'm successful, the Digest soon will no longer gripe about line lengths, oddball fonts, and HTML - while still maintaining the custom controls that allow our "dead-man switch" moderation as well your ability to cancel posts as you see fit. Cheers! - -- See ya! Pat Babcock in SE Michigan Chief of HBD Janitorial Services http://hbd.org pbabcock at hbd.org NOTE: I am migrating my email to a new address. Please use "Reply-to" information.
