Our fund raising round was not successful.  As a result, IDB will be going off line and into cold storage.  If our competitors should stumble, I may re-active the site in the future but for now, we're turning out the lights.

I had planned to go off-line on April 4th.  Due to some important and unplanned changes in our maintenance schedule, I am now bumping that up to next Tuesday morning, March 27th, 2018.  PM 'admin' if you need to reach me. 

You should use the next 5 days to find a new home for your community.

Running IDB has been fun over the years and I hope you enjoyed your time here as well.  Sincerely,  Paul

P.S. News on IDB Funding -- this is now on it's own page to clean up the site a bit.

Re: Apple Ordered To Repay $14.5 Billion In “Illegal” Tax Benefits, Stock Falls 2%

What a crock. Why add "Stock Falls 2%" to the Subject line, when nothing of the sort happened? ... crickets.

Also the decision is, and I quote. "repay up to €13 billion" and Ireland, which has to determine the amount, has already said that all pertinent taxes were paid 

With Ireland appealing and Apple appealing, this is going to take a long time to work it's way out.  This is going to be a great case for the EU attempting to control a soverign nations tax program.
