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!

 So we invent an exchangeable token - call it a dollar - and all of us in our community decide that a dollar is worth 1 tonne of potatoes, and it's worth one 5 meter by 5 meter hut, and it's worth 3 2-meter long tuna fish (a favorite food source of ours), and it's worth 100 square meters of farming land. It is also worth 100 of hut-cleaning and/or child-minding service. Indeed we denominate the dollar's worth in whatever commodities and services interest us, and vice versa we, as a community or as individuals reaching mutual agreement, can agree give a dollar value for any goods and services that interest us. So we invent an exchangeable token - call it a dollar - and all of us in our community decide that a dollar is worth 1 tonne of potatoes, and it's worth one 5 meter by 5 meter hut, and it's worth 3 2-meter long tuna fish (a favorite food source of ours), and it's worth 100 square meters of farming land.

-So that we can keep control of the issuance and transmission of tokens, we authorize an overseeing body. We'll call it a government - a body of people whose decisions and actions are given legitimacy by the consent of the community of whose behalf that government operates. They issue metal and paper tokens (and later, on-screen numbers that represent those tokens), and they punish anyone other than themselves who creates or copies (counterfeits) these money-tokens.+So that we can keep control of the issuance and transmission of tokens, we authorize an overseeing body.

 The value of the dollar tokens changes from time to time, as people decide they love huts more than potatoes, and potatoes more than tuna, and so on, but a central exchange is set up so that people know (officially, at any rate) what a dollar token is worth in terms of huts, potatoes, tuna, cleaning services, and so on. The value of the dollar tokens changes from time to time, as people decide they love huts more than potatoes, and potatoes more than tuna, and so on, but a central exchange is set up so that people know (officially, at any rate) what a dollar token is worth in terms of huts, potatoes, tuna, cleaning services, and so on.
