Hello I'm Justin Breithaupt. Please read the full article and tell me what you think I should do. Thanks.
So you probably want to know more about me first?

It's Time For Global Domination!
Well not really I don't want to control the free world I just want to make it possible for everyone to use GNU/Linux and learn about it just as easily as they can Windows or Mac.
Here is some of what we have done so far while http://thetuxproject.com was down.
24 hour help and support (865) 329-7705 usacomputertech [at] mindblowingidea [dot] com and our best method is our support forum http://sourceforge.net/forum/?group_id=200997 .

Our QOS is not that great yet but as more people volunteer to help it will get better.
And they still tell us we don't contribute to the GNU/Linux community. We will let you decide that for yourself.
We just got a factory 2 stories tall with 3 garage doors big enough to hold 4 - 5 combines. We opened up an Ultumix TM GNU/Linux video game arcade, Internet cafe, truck stop, movie theater, PS2 and other game console play station, unlimited free phone calls, ect.
We want to build a 2nd story and start the previously mentioned GNU-U. I've talked it over with Richard Stallman and we have come to the agreement that I can use the name as long as I don't teach people to use non-free software. We can make them aware of it's existence but not promote it. Unfortunately in the business below (arcade) we are forced to use 3D drivers and a few other non-free software programs to do business.
Right now it is costing us $200.00 a month rent and the main office is used as a book store. It will cost us $100,000.00 to buy the building and we can build it taller because the support beams are very strong and close together. This small but sufficient future University building / arcade / Computer factory and computer repair shop can be heated with two large wood stoves. The lumber will be free this year because I found a friend with extra wood permits. Currently I am using my personal funds from my job to keep this place open and pay my contracted employees. It will cost us $475.00 a month for the use of the whole building. Any help would be much appreciated. As I don't claim to be an GNU/Linux expert by any means and need teaching staff. One of the reasons I have a very hard time teaching my workers is because I get up at 4: AM, get to work at 6 AM, get off at 2 PM, drive to my business at 3 PM (if I'm lucky I usually end up stopping to buy something the business needs or helping a customer) and go to bed at 6 PM (Ya right 10 PM is more like it usually) and try to sleep in on the weekends. This job is literally killing me. I've never had shaky hands, veered off the road, or felt this tired in my entire life except back when I was going to Christian school. So I would like to get my hours straight and the only way that will happen is with educated employees able to do their jobs and not high school grads that never touched GNU/Linux before they started working for me.
We also allow the Boy Scouts of America to use our building when they want as I'm the Assistant Scout Master for Troop 281. They haven't started their meetings this year yet.
The security system has been a blessing so far. We had one person that was there say something on film and the police wanted us to testify to it but because it was on film we didn't have to.
We also have an upper office and a few of our employees may end up moving in there because they will soon be homeless as they will have no place to stay.
They currently eat the food we sell for the price we buy it at and I subtract it from their wages. They enjoy this. We have Ice Cream, personal Pizzas, Pizza pockets, Fruit cups, Cheese Burgers, and we might start ordering other things as well. I got Gatorade but they want soda pop I think soda pop is bad for your health. We also have a microwave we got for free and a full size double freezer we got for $10.00. But it came with a whole lot more than just a freezer we found out later.
The previous owner of the freezer had put 3 steaks on the 2nd to bottom shelf and let the blood go everywhere. There was 1 inch of blood in the bottom of the freezer. We got a half gallon of clorox bleach and pored it on the blood and in the bottom. Then suddenly it all fomed up white and turned clear yellow. We sucked it out with a shop vac and wiped it all down and it was as good as new.
After the 1st week we had about 20 people register and 2 - 3 volunteers all under 18 that wanted to work for game time. However these kids can do manual labor and play games but can't yet install GNU/Linux. I tried teaching one how to make a Cat 5 cable but 10 ends being chopped off later I had to do it.
Even though can't move here you can teach them via web cam / voip / chat using skype or ekiga.
We want to make a splash by donating a computer to the winner of the Freedomware game fest 2008. We only have two problems.
1. We can't seem to contact Freedomware game fest and
2. We don't know how to connect multiple gaming computers from behind a single IP.
We have about 12+ kids and adults interested in competing and 5 computers capable of allowing them to compete.
I've been trying to post this on thetuxproject.com but they don't seem to be available.
