HBD Accounting - 1999

This ledger reflects the financial status of creating and maintaining a new home for the digest. Excess will be retained for repair/upgrade requirements and administerial expenses (such things as domain name creation/maintenance, etc.). This ledger shall be maintained as a public record.

'99 Project: Expanded memory (to 128MB); expand memory of refurbed server to match; complete refurbishment.

'99 Emergency Situation: An unfortunate combination of events has resulted in the complete failure of the HBD server. Refurbed unit also becomes unstable on the network. The HBD comes down "hard". Recovery project: New, faster server with larger storage capacity, more memory and new, more stable operating system.
