KeepSolid VPN Unlimited ('https://stacksocial.com/sales/vpn-unlimited-lifetime-subscription?aid=a-mfvpon2y') - $33.15, down from $39.00: Protect your data on any Wi-Fi network with your own VPN, with no speed or bandwidth limits.

The $33.15 (discounted from $39.00 and "discounted" from $499 ('https://stacksocial.com/sales/vpn-unlimited-lifetime-subscription?aid=a-mfvpon2y')) is for a LIFETIME subscription -- and that's before any affiliate payments are factored in. A one-time payment of thirty bucks is not sustainable for a lifetime of VPN service. This "lifetime" service will either disappear, or they or harvesting data about their users, or both.

It's fine for MacRumors to recommend deals for readers, but they must be legitimate deals. Did the MR staff screen this deal?

With regard to VPN Unlimited:

Yes MR, please do some due diligence on what you “promote” to your readers. A quick look into the company will reveal the data collection the end user agrees to and also the business is located in the USA and Ukraine. Yes seriously, Ukraine.

Have you used other similar builder applications before? Can you compare Blocs to any of them?

I’m forever looking for a really good website builder application that can be used to get the basics of a site up and running and then allow me to customize in raw code, CSS, and HTML in a way that plays nicely with the original application files.

I’m a Web Developer who mostly works on really big sites. I want to do some small projects too, but the tools I use and the things I do for sites with thousands and thousands of pages just isn’t economical for little sites.

I've used Blocs, Rapidweaver, and Freeway Pro for design purposes. Then I add in custom code after the design is done

Personally, I think Blocs is the best in terms of usability while Rapidweaver is better for plugin support. Freeway is a mess. Both will export into plain raw code as well but I don't know if I'd recommend them for 'huge' sites. Right now, the biggest site I worked on so far was my job is 20 pages and Blocs doesn't yet have the ability to organize them into directories without manually changing the routes or create multiple projects

Use code “dn30” to bring the price of Blocs 3 down to $28

Missed the extra 15% and your deal, never mind it’s a good discount anyway. Hope the extra goes to the developer.

Not sure if it will be any good for me, but at the price I paid, worth a gamble.
