Late in the month there was a problem on the server because the remote
backup server was shut down but a daily process that attempts to backup
to the server was not removed.  These stacked up over weeks and ran up

you can currently contribute to the hosting bills by going to

promotion of Squeak.

not limited to):

and DNS services for squeak.org and squeakfoundation.org domain names.
