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!

Hawaiian Minutes Versus Real Minutes

Dear Hawaiian Shuttle Company,

My wife and I recently arrived in Honolulu on our honeymoon and we used your shuttle service to travel from the airport to our hotel and back again, when we went to the Big Island. Your service is excellent and your staff are very friendly, helpful, informative and entertaining. On the way to the hotel, the driver told us we would arrive in approximately fifteen Hawaiian minutes, which means “you’re on vacation, so sit back and relax, and we’ll get there when we get there.” We thought this was funny, we laughed, and later we noticed that the entirety of Honolulu seems to operate on Hawaiian minutes.

Satisfied with the service, we booked a shuttle to take us to the airport for our trip to the Big Island. I called the office and spoke to a gentlemen, telling him I would like to go to the airport.

“What time is your flight?” he said.

“Ten past eight in the morning.”

“We have a seven o’clock shuttle.”

“Is that going to be enough time to get through check-in and security and to the gate?”

“Yeah, should be.”

It was not enough time. We arrived at the airport at 8am, went to the check-in desk and were told the plane was already boarded and ready to leave. They placed us on standby for the next flight, which was in two and a half hours. We passed the time drinking coffee and observing an overweight man performing squats with his hand luggage. While we applauded his efforts to better his life situation, we worried that he was trying to do too much too soon. Nevertheless, we respected his assessment of the performance capabilities of his own body. Then, the next flight was delayed and it was in three and a half hours, and there was only one available seat. I took the seat so that I could make all the rental car arrangements in Kona and wait for my wife, who would hopefully arrive on the next flight. I boarded the plane, took my seat and thought it ironic that just eight days into our marriage, my wife and I were already separated.

Luckily, my wife was on the next flight, but the flight was also delayed by an hour. Eventually, we arrived at our hotel in Kona, after a journey of seven hours (or fifty Hawaiian minutes) which should have taken two hours (or twenty Hawaiian minutes).

I believe this mishap could have been avoided with a simple understanding: while most of Hawaii operates on Hawaiian minutes, the airlines operate on actual minutes, and it is necessary to convert between the two systems to ensure there are no unnecessary delays.

In either the top right or bottom right of your computer screen you will find a series of four numbers. This is called a clock, and it can be used with great accuracy to determine when a person, for example a customer, should be in a specific location, for example an airport. Using a clock is complicated and it is beyond the scope of this email to teach, but with practice and enough Hawaiian minutes, it should be possible to harmoniously convert from one system to the other.

I wish you the best in your efforts to better your company’s performance in the fourth dimension, and my wife and I, now recovered from our trial separation, look forward to witnessing the results first-hand.

Regards,

Will McNeice.
