    That's against their terms and conditions, given that they survive on revenue from advertising that shouldn't be a surprise. Services like this tend to shutdown when they don't make money, which is inconvenient for legitimate users, and the former employees.

      I'm just working on an automation stuff to test customers software. I think I'll probably stick with Selenium

        So you're downloading your customers software from a third party site? Sounds legit.

[Eily]: do you pronunce that /xju:mən/ then ?
[Eily]: that's not what I'd call a silent h :)
[LanX]: see soundfile https://en. wiktionary.org/ wiki/human# Pronunciation
[Your Mother]: Just Another Perl 'Acker.
[LanX]: I pronounce it 'juːmən'
[Your Mother]: Hey, let's not bring antisemitism into the conversation.
[LanX]: for centuries posh English speakers tried to approach French, that's where all the trouble starts
[Eily]: Just another Perl coeurs
[Eily]: (perl with hearts, 'Acker with a French accent is pronunced like coeurs)
[LanX]: IMHO 'ju' for 'u' happens in English where they can't pronounce the French u (or German )
