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!

-Don’t collect a bunch of dust collectors. They just sit out gathering dust and after a while you don’t even see them anymore. Take only some out at a time and tuck others away and rotate them so they all aren’t out at once. Group similar things together and odd numbers of things look more pleasing to the eye.

-Don’t waste money! Money is easily wasted by driving way out of your way to redeem a 50 cent coupon at a store or a restaurant coupon for food that you don’t even want. It costs more in time, gas, and health to redeem little things like that, that aren’t even worth it. Get your one free credit report per year or mistakes will cost you.

-Allergies vs. Cold: allergies are more sneezing and sniffling. Colds or the flu make you feel tired, feverish, have chills, have sweats, have a deep cough from your lungs, and feel achy. You can usually tell the difference. If an antihistamine works, it’s probably just allergies. If you are sick, stay at home so you don’t infect others! Get rest and plenty of water no matter which one it is.

-Sinus Issues: pain around the eyes, forehead, cheekbones, and sinuses could be a sinus infection or cold. They are horribly painful and annoying. At least they aren’t usually contagious.

Try to give your stomach a little break with easier foods to digest. If the stomach issues are from food poisoning they will occur between 6-12 hours after you eat something problematic. The symptoms will be mostly vomiting and diarrhea. Once you get it out you will typically start feeling better.

-Sprains or Strains: Remember RICE: rest, ice, compress, and elevate. Ace bandages help to hold joints in place if they have been strained. This should help after wearing it for a few days to take stress off of it so it won’t be reinjured. Some anti-inflammatory pain relievers like aspirin might help as well.
