Therefore, we usually do NOT keep anyof these books in compliance with any particular paper edition.We are now trying to release all our books one year in advanceof the official release dates, leaving time for better editing.Please be encouraged to send us error messages even years afterthe official publication date.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, comment  and editing by those who wish to do so.Most people start at our sites at:http://gutenberg.nethttp://promo.net/pgThose of you who want to download any Etext before announcementcan surf to them as follows, and just download by date; this isalso a good way to get them instantly upon announcement, as theindexes our cataloguers produce obviously take a while after anannouncement goes out in the Project Gutenberg Newsletter.http://www.ibiblio.org/gutenberg/etext02orftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/docs/books/gutenberg/etext02Or /etext01, 00, 99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 92, 91 or 90Just search by the first five letters of the filename you want,as it appears in our Newsletters.Information about Project Gutenberg (one page)We produce about two million dollars for each hour we work. Thetime it takes us, a rather conservative estimate, is fifty hoursto get any etext selected, entered, proofread, edited, copyrightsearched and analyzed, the copyright letters written, etc. Thisprojected audience is one hundred million readers. If our valueper text is nominally estimated at one dollar then we produce $2million dollars per hour this year as we release fifty new Etextfiles per month, or 500 more Etexts in 2000 for a total of 3000+If they reach just 1-2% of the world's population then the totalshould reach over 300 billion Etexts given away by year's end.The Goal of Project Gutenberg is to Give Away One Trillion EtextFiles by December 31, 2001. [10,000 x 100,000,000 = 1 Trillion]This is ten thousand titles each to one hundred million readers,which is only about 4% of the present number of computer users.At our revised rates of production, we will reach only one-thirdof that goal by the end of 2001, or about 3,333 Etexts unless wemanage to get some real funding.The Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation has been createdto secure a future for Project Gutenberg into the next millennium.We need your donations more than ever!Presently, contributions are only being solicited from people in:Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa,Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nevada,  Montana, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina,South Dakota, Texas, Vermont, and Wyoming.As the requirements for other states are met,additions to this list will be made and fund raisingwill begin in the additional states.These donations should be made to:Project Gutenberg Literary Archive FoundationPMB 1131739 University Ave.Oxford, MS 38655-4109Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation,EIN [Employee Identification Number] 64-6221541,has been approved as a 501(c)(3) organization by the US InternalRevenue Service (IRS).
