Over the past year, our monthly income has been averaged $4,600, while our monthly expenses are estimated to be $6,550 going forward. Unless something changes soon, '''we will be bankrupt in August'''. The following is an approximate breakdown of our monthly expenses:
* $300 utilities (I'm TOTALLY making this up just to have a number, not even sure what all I mean it to include)

** PG&E, Water? (shared w/ NoStarch?), trash/recycling, insurance split over a year, ISP (I recommend sonic.net)

* $100 misc (toilet paper, juice, resistors)

'''Q.''' (by [[DavidMolnar]] editing w/o logged in): Is this realistic? metalab clears this much, but assuming we can come out of the gate and obtain the same revenue seems optimistic.<br/>
+
'''A.''' Yeah, 300$ is very realistic - that's like 8 drinks per day sold at a $1.2 profit. Our initial calculations were without drinks too because we didn't believe it. But we had huge sales really quickly. People tend to drink a lot while hanging around at a Hacker Space. --[[User:Enki|Enki]] 12:33, 18 January 2008 (PST)
