That's not possible. All directors, including you, need to vote over
such decisions. No director can do anything without discussion between
all directors and approval by a majority.

(Note also that as treasurer, I can assure you that no money has been
paid and I do not intend to pay anyone unless approved by the board;
the only outstanding project is for Justin to merge Aften, and that's
still ongoing. We've discussed other projects but nothing final from
what I remember. I'd like to fund Maxim's prores project but I don't
recall a final decision there yet.)
