G&A doubled for Q3 (increased 40% for 9 months) This was due to a tax settlement* they mentioned in the 10-K as a subsequent event. I didn't capture it in my 10-K write up because I knew I'd catch it here.

* Tax settlement details
From the 10-K subsequent events (Note 7).
During March 2005, the Company paid approximately $61,000 to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance for settlement of their sales tax audit. The Company had originally accrued approximately $26,000 in a prior year, and as a result of the settlement, approximately $35,000 was charged to expense during the fourth quarter of 2004.And this is from the 10-Q for Q3:
This increase is directly attributable to the settlement in the amount of $298,200 paid in October 2005 to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance related to a sales tax audit of our Florida subsidiary. Absent this issue, general and administrative expenses have decreased for the quarter in comparison to the same period last year due to efficiencies realized in the financial reporting and administrative areas of the Company.They also issued an 8-K about it.
I need to take a quick look at the Q2 2005 results.
The balance sheet looks ok.
Six month revenues were up very slightly. Gross profit was up more. G&A was also up slightly.
Six month operating income: $414K (vs $380K in prior year)
Six month net income was $261K or 3.88 cents/share (vs $234K in prior year)
Six month cash flow from ops was only $100K for 6 months, with capex of $23K. It was fine for 3 months, which means Q1 stunk in terms of cash from ops.
The only other significant cash flow item was a $7K of repayment on a capital lease obligation.
