In 2009 it was "tightest" end of september/beginning of october.  In October
and November, revenues exceeded expenses.

That's a great chart (*) by the way.  I'd be interested in seeing that for
the entire life of the foundation.  Combined with Andrew Gray's numbers it
looks like WMF have for the most part been spending less than they've been
taking in even when there isn't a fundraiser going on.

(*) Revenue and Expense Actuals/Projections Against Plan, on the last page
of the report.
