James Aitken: Fan

James tells us:

The CPAN is more than just an archive of code, it is a community of dedicated people that share and support that code. They make the CPAN what it is, showcasing the best of the Perl community. 
There are about 9,500 CPAN authors[1][2]. This logo honours those people with each petal representing 1,000. As the CPAN grows, the logo will expand, adding more petals – much like the United States flag adds a star for each state. This very visual change represents the ever-growing nature of the CPAN, and that like all code - it is never finished. 
The organic flower-like shape shows the human side, with the colours representing the diversity of the Perl community. The mathematical precision required to create the image represents the rigour required to code. This confluence of humanity and technology makes the CPAN what it is, and this logo tries to show that. 
In practical terms, the logo functions as a symbol without any typography and at any scale. Its shape is recognisable in colour, greyscale, and black and white. The type is NeoSans, a futuristic "ultra-modern" typeface that retains some friendliness. It works well at headline and body sizes, and is very versatile.

  14. The Bad
    One of the major issues with Putlocker is the fact that the domain address may keep changing from one day to the next. In our time using the website, we’ve found that it’s had multiple different domains – very recently, as we mentioned above, the website has rebranded itself and also goes as GoMovies. This means that you may not be able to find the website reliably and it can also mean that copycat websites can easily fool you with similar domain names.

    As with many other free websites on the internet, if you’re using Putlocker, you need to be prepared and willing to deal with a few pop-up ads. They can be annoying, but thankfully, Putlocker seems to have less ads than most of the other websites that provide a similar service.

    You might also have concerns about the legality of the website, but it operates on what is more or less a grey area. The site itself does not actually host any pirated material at all. The website doesn’t allow for any user-uploaded content and Putlocker and affiliated websites all have a disclaimer that reads:

    “This site does not store any files on its server. All contents are provided by non-affiliated third parties.”

    Which means that website itself isn’t doing anything that is actually illegal. For all intents and purposes, the website simply provides a place for you to find the links to find content that is already hosted somewhere else on the internet. So, you don’t have much to worry about.

    The Verdict
    There is a reason why Putlocker hd is popular and the reason is this: Putlocker provides a service, the advantages of which massively outweigh the disadvantages. So, if you want to watch something online and cannot afford to pay for the hundred and one different streaming services that exist, Putlocker is a solid choice.
