Yearly Cost

Having the internet server, and domains cost us about $200+ a year.
Computer Hardware costs us about $2,000 a year.
CDs, DVDs, cost us about $200 a year.
Hiring help for development hasn’t happened yet because we can’t afford it.
Internet Costs are $360 a year + a once a year charge on top of that that changes from year to year.  Electricity and other utilities comes to $4,120.00
Rent is $7,200 a year. This comes to a total cost of operations at $12,280 without tax. This does not factor in travel or eating expenses, pleasure, time off, or miscellaneous. This is a modest figure. I’m also needing more External 1TB or Larger Hard Drives constantly. I rarely have the money to spend on new hardware.

Currently ad revenue from videos, and this web page generate about $1,658.10 a year on average. This last year a donation of $600 was made. This brings the total up to $2,258.10 leaving a balance due of $−10,021.9 meaning that not including the work hours and development put into this project we need at least $10,021.90 in additional funding this year alone. An average of about 10,000 people a year get a copy of JULinux either from a friend, or by downloading it. If each person who used JULinux donated $2.00 that would help a lot. Not everyone can donate, but you can also help us earn revenue by sharing the videos at http://www.youtube.com/usacomputertec and watching them yourself. Also remember that donating by PayPal takes a chunk out of your donation, so sending a check to our mailing address will help too:

Having Developers to help me develop an original Linux Distribution From Scratch, or to do things I’m not currently able to do on my own, would cost between $30,000 – $100,000 a month depending on the programmer. Most average for $75,000 a month.
