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!

Introduction

“One Day In The Life of Ivan Denisovich” is a book by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn on the experiences of a man named Ivan Denisovich (Shukhov). Shukhov is a prisoner in a Russian Gulag during the rule of the Soviet Union. Throughout the book we follow his experience from the moment he wakes up to the moment he falls asleep. Some find it hard to believe that it's just one day.

Reasons for Reading

One of the main reasons for reading “One Day In The Life of Ivan Denisovich” is to show you that no matter how bad things that happen in your life seem you can still be happy. Throughout the book we see how his life and the lives of his fellow inmates have been stolen by the Soviet Union and how their lives have been turned to those of slave laborers. We get a new take on what it really means to be living hard. They get very small amounts of food and work all day in extremely cold temperatures. I think everybody should read this book and the good news is, it isn't very long.

The Author

Alexandr Solzhenitsyn was a Russian soldier in WW2. He was sent to a gulag for writing a letter that criticized Joseph Stalin. He wrote about his gulag experiences in this book. He also wrote several other books about the Soviet Union system such as “Gulag Archipelago” and “For the Good of the Cause.”

Overall

“One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” is a very interesting, entertaining, and enlightening book that many people can enjoy. It is especially good if you take notes during your reading so you can categorize and catalouge characters, events, and how the Soviet Union gulag system works.
