We need your donations.(Extract from: Sun Tzu on the Art of War (Lionel Giles, trans.)May, 1994 [Etext #132][Most recently updated: March 15, 2002]The Project Gutenberg Etext of The Art of War by Sun Tzu*****This file should be named suntx10.txt or*****Corrected EDITIONS of our etexts get a new NUMBER, suntx11.txt.VERSIONS based on separate sources get new LETTER, suntx10a.txt.We are now trying to release all our books one month in advanceof the official release dates, for time for better editing. Wehave this as a goal to accomplish by the end of the year but wecannot guarantee to stay that far ahead every month after that.Please note: neither this list nor its contents are final tillmidnight of the last day of the month of any such announcement.The official release date of all Project Gutenberg Etexts is atMidnight, Central Time, of the last day of the stated month. Apreliminary version may often be posted for suggestion, commentand editing by those who wish to do so. To be sure you have anup to date first edition [] please check file sizesin the first week of the next month. Since our ftp program hasa bug in it that scrambles the date [tried to fix and failed] alook at the file size will have to do, but we will try to see anew copy has at least one byte more or less.Information about Project Gutenberg (one page)We produce about two million dollars for each hour we work. Thefifty hours is one conservative estimate for how long it we taketo get any etext selected, entered, proofread, edited, copyrightsearched and analyzed, the copyright letters written, etc. This  projected audience is one hundred million readers. If our valueper text is nominally estimated at one dollar then we produce $4million dollars per hour this year as we release some eight textfiles per month: thus upping our productivity from $2 million.The Goal of Project Gutenberg is to Give Away One Trillion EtextFiles by the December 31, 2001. [10,000 x 100,000,000=Trillion]This is ten thousand titles each to one hundred million readers,which is 10% of the expected number of computer users by the endof the year 2001.We need your donations more than ever!All donations should be made to Project Gutenberg/IBC , and aretax deductible to the extent allowable by law ( IBC is IllinoisBenedictine College).
