The first WC lost about $500. The ones after that were a net gain (05) or close 
to even (06). That's from my failing memory, though. I also *think* that some 
of the t-shirt batch from the first WC were shirts that we sold later. So it 
may not be as much of a loss as it seems.

As far as the artwork costs, that was something that made a lot of sense, given 
the quality of artwork from the community back then. Now, y'all should make 
Stippi do it. :-) The artwork was what made the t-shirts worth having. I don't 
regret or think that anyone should regret that at all, although, again, if a 
qualified volunteer could do it, that is all the better. :D

I can't speak to 2007's financial reports.

the Financial reports say me others :-)

What ever, in the past have haiku.inc pay not real needed stuff (thats my  
privet belief)
eg: WalterCon Artwork = $300 etc..

So look in the futures, When planing a WalterCon , look where the most  
Haiku developer living and then now start a regestration etc...

But i think befor Haiku inc plans a WalterCon then make the Finacel  
reports from 2007 ready.
(thats is my criticism on Haiku inc)

All in all make Haiku inc good job and i hope the transition is be ready  
end of 2008
