Because of some logistics problems (unable to meet some key people), I
haven't been able to send out details of our expenditures and incomes.
I am working on that and will mail the list as quickly as I can.

In the meantime, I urge everyone who's reading this to work on finding
people/companies who might be willing to pitch in. We're not in dire
straits but our margin of safety is too low and given that budgets
have a nasty habit of exploding at the last minute, I'm not
comfortable with the current state of affairs.

Please get in touch with people you know who might be willing to pitch
in with the conference and let me know so that we can get it moving.

thanks for your support.
