The 2004-2005 missing funds were pretty much covered by the hort.net fund, 
but this year it was dry and I'm covering things on my own.  We might be
able to make it through the end of the year if all invoices are paid by
custoemrs, but once I lose that $2400/year customer things will change.

Basically, they're now under new management, fired their old Web designer/
webmaster, and are now in the process of revamping the site.  I suspect 
that they want to move somewhere else.

Any fund-raising ideas would be great.  I know that you guys are smart!
