I tried the HTML5 game, kept pressing fire and switched to Exposé with the F3 key.

Worked for me to obtain auto fire on Chrome/Mountain Lion.

Beautiful implementation.

As stated elsewhere in the thread, it is work in progress, so do not be too harsh of a critic.

Once all the lessons are up and a responsive layout is implemented, I believe this to be a beautiful addition for beginners and advanced programmers.

P.S.: Reminds me a bit of http://www.phptherightway.com - Maybe you can borrow a few of the good ideas from that guide?


Charging for premium features - Sure. But the basic version will remain free according to the Trello Guide.

Free... for how long?

Trello is free forever. We may add pay-only features in the future, but everything that's free today will be free tomorrow and forever. Also, we'll not make a for-pay feature that forces you to compromise on privacy, security, or portability. Those are built-in. [...] Trello is free.

Forever is such a strong word... What if Fogcreek goes bust one day? I would actually prefer companies to charge money for such services, it gives greater confidence in them in the long run. Even a measly $10/year per user is a great business model if you have 1M users.

I agree with you, although to be fair, they likely wouldn't have 1M users if they charged.


  updating, come back later...
The site in question has been updated quite quickly I suppose.

Page Speed and YSlow say Hacker News should:

* Enable gzip compression. * Specify img dimensions. * Leverage browser caching: Add Expires headers; Configure entity tags (ETags). * Minify JavaScript

I actually don't mind HN taking a while to load. It't not that we have to fight for every new user by aggressively optimizing page load time. Btw. the recent changes to the HN backend already improved the average speed a lot.

Not to say that this valuation indicates a bubble but I find it interesting to compare it to the Moorhuhn Game Series which was popular quite a few years ago. Seems to have been the equivalent of Angry Birds in the early 2000's.

Propelled by the game's popularity, its Bochum-based publisher Phenomedia AG, who had acquired Art Department, went public in late 1999 at the height of the dot-com bubble and attained a market value of up to one billion Euro.



Engels averaged around four hours to complete a marathon. He said his best time was 2 hours, 56 minutes.

The Boston Marathon is the most prestigious marathon. There are only a small amount of spots for charity runners, the rest are qualifiers.

At that phenomenal pace of 2 hrs 56 min, 49-year old Engels is beating the qualification straitjackets for elite (non-professional) runners in ALL age groups.
