    Team Interrobang Financial Report for July, 2017

    Hi ho, Interrobangers.

    Well, we've battened down the hatches, hoisted the sails, stemmed the tide, tied our shoes, and other idioms as well. Our monthly costs are now a much more sustainable $60 or so, and we still have a handful of suckers donors who are giving us that amount, monthly, and more. We did just lose one more donor (though it's a "payment skipped due to card problems" rather than a cancellation, so I dunno yet for sure) but we're still scheduled to raise $65/month for the time being.

    July saw the last (for now) of our "high cost" months -- at the end of the month we scaled our server down to a much more modest level. We're no longer paying for the RAM and CPU that made 12 TF2 servers and two minecraft servers hum along as we did in our heyday. But we're still here, with a box that can keep our website running and run a couple gameservers as we decide what to support going forward. We're also well positioned to grow again when/if the community rallies in the future.

    July's numbers: $85 in donations, $213 in costs (includes our old monthly bill of $164 plus a once-a-year cost of $45 for our domain name and DNS service) for a net loss of $128. Our reserve balance at the end of the month was $1289.

    August and the future: We've started paying quarterly for our box, since that gets us a 10% discount. So our cost for August is $159, but we will have ZERO costs for September and October. With no further changes in donations, that means that by the end of September we'll have done slightly better than breaking even.
    A dozen, a gross, and a score
    and three times the square root of four
    all over seven
    plus five times eleven
    equals nine squared — and not a bit more!
