Being a developer, what do you struggle with the most? To me I sometime have a hard time in deciding what server configuration I would support as I cant expect everyone to be running the latest and greatest. I also have trouble with things like regex and mySQL can get in the way, but that only a minor thing generally.
Despite I've been working as a sysadmin for years, I'm pretty new to forum administration (that's why now I'm in TAZ, basically ). From the last december I'm the forum manager in a large italian community for musicians (126k topics, 1.4 milions of posts, 63k users).

Hello TAZ community!
I´ve read the description of CloudFlare services on their website and it sounds good so far. Now I´m interested in your experiences by using CloudFlare services.

Thanks a lot in advance!
