Did Paul ever let us know what the current cost and deficit is?

We used to allow all AnimalFarm sponsors to do exactly this.  Every Friday 
morning.  Perhaps a time to revisit the issue...  Good way to build a kitty for

Chuck could consider allowing vendors to post ad's on a specific day and time 
for a specific fee, but that's a whole other animal to deal with, the plus 
would be he could add like *SPONSORED AD* to the title which we can all filter 
straight to spam if desired 😎

Amazon never goes down, never gets blacklisted.

If you are cool with bulk mailserver drama, then have a go at switching, and 
managing that aspect.   😊

AES is not the cheapest option no doubt.  This was a choice Chuck and I made to 
make sure it “just worked” because we all have businesses that, hopefully, are 
successful enough to not want to fuss with it.

What is SES?  Amazon?

That seems overkill for a mailing list.

Support of what???

What the heck costs that much?

Mailman takes all of 10 minutes to install and just lives after that.

Last time this was brought up the cost was $3000 for the year including

Can it really be more than $5????

How much memory, CPU, and storage can a mailing list take when virtualized?

I notice it has been a while since we pushed a bit to help fund the

Paul, what is the current status of our deficit?
