Let's see, where are we? Oh, yes, it's the end of the first week of January 2012.

So according to some speculators, the Mayan calendar foretells an apocalyptic event. It even gives us a potential date for the theoretical downfall: Dec. 21, 2012. Around 11 months and two weeks away. It is now my fervent belief that if OSM actually holds to their previous promises to publish the financial reports on time as well as the board minutes, it is likely to be on December 20, 2012 and we will only have one day to enjoy it!

End of the first week in January, 2012. Financial reports for the end of November, 2011 and the end of December, 2011 have not been published. Nor has there been any communication concerning the holdup. So, Paul Orwig's dismal record in posting OSM's financial reports for the Joomla! Community to review is at 16.6% for the year (2 out of twelve months).

I have blogged quite a bit about OSM's failure not only to keep it's promises of transparency (essentially resolutions of transparency) but also its failure to follow its own bylaws and the not for profit laws of the state of New York under which OSM is incorporated. If we think of OSM's failures to keep resolutions as similar to the failures of those of us who make New Year's resolutions to lose weight maybe we can put OSM's continued failures in perspective. You know what I mean - the elliptical machines and free weights will be occupied from dusk to dawn in January with people who made the New Year's Resolution to "get in shape." But by February, the gym will be nearly empty again.

So, OSM, a new year is about to start. Should you make a resolution to keep your previous resolutions? Here's a New Year's resolution OSM can keep: Resolve not to make any more New Year's resolutions (goals) or any resolutions.

Now, wasn't that easy? And, doesn't it fit the actual performance of OSM this past two years?
