Income / money for the ILUG will allow us to organise events on the scale of
LAID more frequently, LAID was a great success, but we can't assume that
we'll always have corporate backers to that extent. Running / having the
domain also costs money, and although it's not a fortune, it is a cost. As
for the machine hosting the website, it is Colm's personal machine, if Colm
decided that we were all a shower of ***** (unlikley but how and ever) we
wouldn't have a website to argue over, nor a mailing list.
There are various other things that cost money, ask any university society
what they spend money on ...
