I feel very bad about this situation, and rather than continuing to
attempt the check method (which has proven problematic), I am going to
initiate a wire transfer on Monday so that Denis can finally get his

from a representative, but I think maybe he was confused about the
internationality of this transfer, as that is the international
transfer rate).  Both of these are less than $50 and 5% of the amount
we owe, so I am not required to clear this with the board, but in the
interest of openness I am disclosing it.

No action is required from any of you, this is purely informational.
