If you use a common browser EFF's (eff.org) Force SSL Browser Addon is really useful in this regard to assisting with making SSL handshake's happen by default...

I guess in our household we make use of IMDB quite a fair bit..

Also some of the devices I run from TV's (Chromecast, Roku 3) make use of OpenSubtitles which also might be another site of interest?...
a comment on the Instant Answer Idea Convert time into Swatch Internet Time 3 years and 10 months ago
Could you not just set the formula in your own script/code from:

"The formula for calculating the current time in .beats from UTC+1 is:

(UTC+1seconds + (UTC+1minutes * 60) + (UTC+1hours * 3600)) / 86.4"

Taken from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swatch_Int... (which you linked from).

Using the 'date' command from a shell/VPS/dedicated server in Linux for instance would be a good way of working out the current time in Swatch Internet Time obviously with the above formula.

ping @zac << What do you think in regards to this person's question of adding it into search?

I mean I can read it -sort of- but yeah I could not tell you what it means or says exactly.

I'm running Firefox build 31.0 on GNU/Linux if that helps...(And here is what I see from my end).

Excuse my ignorance as I did not know it was/is possible, but is that a top level domain in unicode?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling How DuckDuckGo know that I visited any link? 3 years and 10 months ago
I guess you could look at some plugins to clear your history/cookies/general data that your browser collects. But as @x.15a2 said it's your internet browser that is actually recording what you are doing which is client side (meaning on your local machine) not DDG's website which is (server side)...
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Who switched my search engine? 3 years and 10 months ago
I would say it's something related to Chrome being that Chrome is a Google product. I personally do not use Chrome anymore I realise it is a very popular browser but I find Iceweasel/Firefox can do everything Chrome can if not more. At the end of the day it renders web pages for your computer to read them anything you choose to do more is through addons/plugins.

So I would recommend looking at stopping using Chrome & using Firefox or something that is not attached at the hip to Google...in my humble opinion.

Note: The advice above is without getting technical about what is happening..
