An opportunity came up this week where a client of a company that I consult with was working with a designer. The designer made some rather harsh comments about how Cloudflare was not a true CND and was “Useless”.
I do agree the Cloudflare is not a true CDN, or Content Delivery Network, but it is hardly useless. I took a look at the client’s usage and it would be easy to move them to a full CDN, the cost for Cloudflare was free, the cost for a full CDN would be about $300 a month.
It has been a hard lesson to learn, that is that not every, in fact, a lot of people don’t have an email address. For a long time, I knew that older, often retired people, don’t have emails. They left the workforce before email was big and now they just don’t have a need for it. As I’ve learned, many people share email addresses or don’t have one at all.
