@outkine At first I just used it for SSL since my previous host didn't have any free SSL. Now I use many of Cloudflare's features.
@outkine lol Cloudflare does a ton more than faster DNS resolution, some of which I have said in previous toots.
See https://www.quora.com/How-does-Cloudflare-work-Does-Cloudflare-just-divert-malicious-traffic & https://wp-rocket.me/blog/cloudflare-use-not/ for most of the things that Cloudflare can do.
@outkine you're very welcome, I also had to find out these things the hard way.
Websites for more details:
Or you can just turn off cloudflare entirely on a website (and re enable it at anytime):
@outkine you can turn on development mode (which turns off caching for 4 hours) or use the page rules to exclude certain pages (from cache, you get 3 rules in the free plan)
To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!
Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:
Control Your Platform.
Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.
They all go away. Every one of them.
Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.
Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.
That you're celebrating 90 years since your first motion picture debut means you're well past your public domain bedtime you fucking rat.
But because your handlers can't stand the thought of giving you up to the rest of the world means we'll probably have to suffer another 90 years without anything going into the public domain, least of all the stuff that you stole from it.
Fuck you, Mickey. Fuck you.
Don’t see an issue with Facebook, Amazon or Google?
See how it’s working for China:

Thinking about switching to #Ubuntu (from Win7) on my main computer. Anyone have any tips, tricks or apps (that I should install)? This isn't going to happen right away but at one point I want to get away from Windows.
@kev It's funny that you are de-googling your life yet you still use google fonts on your site.
