Theoretically, if your bandwidth is high enough, you can transfer the entire computational state of the distant resource to a local substrate, and then run the computation locally for a low-latency conversation.
So, if you are annoyed by the slow comms of our alpha centauri - earth channel, just transfer _your entire brain_ to a local avatar and I'll converse with that. Then run "git merge" to bring the remote history back to the master repo.
I read the pricing FAQ but I'm still a bit confused.
Here's my use case:
I host my own web apps & sites.
I would like to use WebFlow to redesign one of them. Should take me about a month.
Do I only pay for a month, and then export, and then quit paying?
What happens when, 1 year from now, I want to tweak the site? Can WebFlow import old webflow projects? Or do I need to pay for every intervening month to preserve the ability to use WebFlow on that site in the future?
Hi there, Webflow founder here!
We actually have a free trial, which lets you design and export as many sites as you'd like in a 2 week period. If you're still working on your site after your trial is over you have the option of upgrading to the Personal plan which gives you the ability to export your sites. You can cancel at any time and we never delete your work, so you can come back a year later and redesign your site again.
Yes, I do, but I don't find them relevant here. Suing you for breaching my privacy is completely independent from the fact that if you caught me lying to you by peeking through the curtains, I'd only have myself to blame.
Break free of the mindframe that those with secrets are keeping something wrong secret.
I'm not having that mindset. I actually see three kinds of secrets people might have:
- things they shouldn't be doing in the first place (like tax fraud),
- things that are dangerous should evil people know about them (by government mass surveilence, you installing a camera in my bathroom, etc.),
- things that are inconvenient should morons know about them (like religious/sexual orientation, etc.)
Most of the privacy-related discussions here focus on the second and third kind. I argue that we shouldn't keep only blaming particular technologies (cameras, satellites, big data), but instead we should focus on dealing with evil people and morons. Fighting technology is pointless (sans starting Third World War) and potentially hurtful (all that surveillance tech we're so afraid of can and already does wonders in areas like agriculture, medicine, public safety and social studies).
How about we make sure that social and legal structure deters people from acting on collected data in a malicious way, that makes it easier to get rid of morons in your collective social network, instead of blaming mapping technologies for breaking marriages, or Twitter for government shooting their citizens in a more efficient manner, or Facebook for that boss not hiring you because you're an atheist?
I measure my productivity in a language by how little code I can write to accomplish my goal. You seem to be saying the opposite?
EDIT: I guess you are saying something slightly different: that you can produce reams of C# code that works out of the box without many iterations. "reams" to me implies boilerplate & excessive ceremony, but I shouldn't assume that about your work =)
Shouldn't productivity be measured in how much time it takes to solve problems? The amount of code produced at the end is only relevant if typing is a significant portion of your time spent. Typing is rarely my bottleneck.
Agree that typing speed is not the bottleneck when writing code, but there is something to be said for writing fewer lines of code that are also easy to understand (ie. overly clever code that is concise is often a negative). That should make maintenance and debugging easier as there is less code in which to introduce bugs and less code to load into your brain when returning to it later.
No I wouldn't be saying I produce reams of boilerplate like it's a good thing ;) I meant, and I'm sure you've experience this, that the language doesn't get in the way of realizing the program that's still in my head. Every interruption spent tracking down some language quirk is probably double the time or more to get back into the flow of it. It's really a shame Microsoft doesn't do more to make C# more portable.
Posted this b/c I'm surprised to learn that the much-ballyhooed $699 Dell 4K monitor maxes out at 30Hz refresh rates when running at full resolution (3840x2160), even if you have a DisplayPort 1.2 card capable of pushing that many pixels at 60Hz.
