Well i missed this announcement from Cloudant

Well i noticed this on my account page with Cloudant:

Cloudant DBaaS price change—the free tier just got free-er!

Big news! We’ve raised the limit of the Cloudant DBaaS multi-tenant free tier from $5 per month to $50 per month. This permanent change begins on January 1, 2015, and will automatically be applied to the accounts of all multi-tenant users.

There will still be no extra charges for secondary index reads and updates, and bulk reads and writes will continue to count as one request.

You can see the details in their changed pricing page.

This is an awesome way to start the 2015. $50 is a lot of http and json flying back and forth. For me it means more room to play.

i <3 Cloudant…


I would have to agree

There are some harsh criticisms in this post about certain aspects of the HTML5 spec.

I would have to agree with Luke Stevens because he mentions that adding in elements like ‘sections’ have created confusion for many people, including me.

I googled ‘purpose of section tag’ and a lot of what is returned is individuals such as my self trying to make light of the the purpose of such a tag. ‘In all honesty why is it there?… isn’t it just a div?…’ These are all the sorts of comments left by individuals. 

When i first saw the new tags at first thought i was dreading all the changes i would have to make to my HTML and CSS, all my navigation areas will now need to be wrapped in nav tags etc…

Again more confusion, but after some more reading i came to the conclusion you don’t need to change anything, in fact most of what we have written will last for years to come.
