DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

A Day in the Life of a Bird

Once upon a time there lived a bird named Steve. It was a peculiar since birds don't usually have names, especially robins. The robin was born many years prior and always stopped by the neighborhood “Planet Pizza” for lunch. His favorite type of pizza was pepperoni, even though he knew it put him at risk of heart disease and stroke. He loved to listen to music and even created his own “Bird Band,” back when he was younger.

Today

Today he was feeling pretty good, for he had met a very nice female robin the night before at the Planet Pizza. They shared a pizza and then went to the “Froyo” place to get some Frozen Yogurt. Steve was planning to meet the female robin later at the movies, but he first had to study.

About Robins

As you may know, robins are a type of bird that usually stays solitary. Same with Steve. He usually either went out by himself or studied classical literature. Robins aren't like finches; they put education and the arts before a social life.

Studying

Steve studied his classical literature for a long time: Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and Steinbeck. He studied so long that he missed his appointment with the female robin at the movies! He was very disappointed, so he decided to talk to one of his fellow male birds, a “homie” of his.

Talking with his bird friend

Steve talked to his avian friend Jay, who, as his name suggests, is a blue jay. Jay was always the joker and Steve loved to hang out with him, although Jay would not say the same in return. “I didn't get to see my female robin friend again, what will I do?” said Steve. “Yay!” said Jay, in a lame attempt to extract a laugh from Steve. “Let me hear you say 'Yay!' after you break up with somebody.” replied Steve. Jay replied, “You were dating?” “No,” Steve answered. “Well, then,” replied Jay, as he flew away, “you threw away your one chance at a social life, as a frustrated writer would crumple up a failed love story manuscript.”

Conclusion

Steve continued to live his life disappointed, while Jay came up with more metaphors for how Steve threw away his one chance for him to have a social life.

Moral

If you are a robin, try to get a social life.
