  • The payments for the week were routine, Survey Monkey for SP, Basecamp and Campfire, premium shipping, bank fee for the Remote Deposit scanner
  • Amazon Web and a small fee from one of our server colo places that’s an adjustment for the exchange rate, I believe.
  • For income, we had $865 via Paypal, $41.18 in fees on those donations. Those came from 69 separate donations, 3 via the website, and the remaining 66 from recurring subscription donations, at an average of $12.50 per donation, which is normal for a non-drive month, and about half of the average for a drive month.

2. Committee Updates

  • SP has released 3 new reports and plans to recruit 2 new staffers
  • Comms has taken over the <a href=””>Linked In account</a>
  • Comms Chair updated the room on the event planning for the 1 millionth fanwork
  • Systems
    • The new servers are all powered on and known to be working.
    • The 4 systems running archive code are in production and running well.
    • The other 2 older systems have been reinstalled with an updated version of the operating system and returned to service.
    • We have migrated our database system to one of the new database server and this has helped with the archive melting down.
    • Work on migrating to mysql cluster continues but will take some time.

3. Docs Project

  • Board agrees the President and Director position descriptions are acceptable
  • Next step is to send President to Chairs and put Director on wiki
  • Next week we will be discussing Diversity Guidelines, the Board-Personnel communications, and the Secretary position description.
