    1. eachpricing their goods and services in terms of their own personal coins. Next, assume that every two villagersexchange 100 personal coins with each other

      Pricing in your own coins means personal coins may not match in value behind them. One may offer a cup of coffee for 1 coin, another for 5. Simply exchanging 100 coins with each other would mean one'll get 1/5 of value from this exchange. So 1:5 exchange would be needed. But how to know that in advance?

      一天一千美元(新臺幣三萬)在美國是合理、受尊重的口譯價格,不算頂級但在平均之上。

      至於一天臺幣五萬,甚至6000美元(臺幣18萬),那就是頂級的待遇了。我只聽一位經常往返台美之間的律師朋友說過,他們事務所曾以一天6000美元僱用過一位中英口譯員,我也曾因緣際會,在一場美國現場的庭外採證會上,親身體驗這位口譯員的厲害。

      那場口譯歷時14小時,我方兩人一組,每三四小時才獲准輪流,做完時已經累得不成人樣。這位頂尖口譯擔任我倆的糾錯口譯,全程單槍匹馬14小時犀利指教,毫不客氣。

      我那一天的收費,按照我事先制定的超時費率,高達3200美元。雖然驚人,但換算時薪,加上高難度的技術性內容,只是剛好。我想,這種案可遇不可求,以後難再有如此高價的單日收費,我也不喜歡這種出賣腦神經的極端體力活。

      所以,在這裡聽到有口譯員一天待遇5-18萬,還真好奇是什麼樣的案呢!

    1. Leaky Bucket is implemented similarly to Token Bucket where OVER_LIMIT is returned when the bucket is full. However tokens leak from the bucket at a consistent rate which is calculated as duration / limit. This algorithm is useful for metering, as the bucket leaks allowing traffic to continue without the need to wait for the configured rate limit duration to reset the bucket to zero.
