a reply to a comment on the Instant Answer Idea Workdays between two dates 5 years and 2 months ago
Interesting thoughts! : )
I think holidays should be equal to weekends. I.e. holidays doesn't count as workdays.

I think it should include both the start date and end date, unless told not to. E.g. "workdays between 1/6/2014 1/10/2014" returns "5", and "workdays between 1/6/2014 1/10/2014 both exclusive" returns "3".

Please note, I'm not a native English speaker, so the "both exclusive" is just a loose translation. : )
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Website proxy service 5 years and 2 months ago
Yes, unfortunately there is countries, that blocks all access to certain sites, e.g. sites with illegal content.

With regard to the "Why create a proxy?"-question. I agree with you, WSecure.

Personally I would love to just say "That's enough!" and just block all Google's websites, because I find them not respecting my privacy, as much as some alternative services does.

But that would just make too many, websites not work! This is because many webmasters makes use of Google's services on non-Google websites.

E.g. embedding Google Maps on a "Locate your nearest local Wall-Mart"-page or hosting their videos on YouTube (which is owned by Google), instead of hosting them themself, or hosting their RSS feeds on FeedBurner (a Google-service)... the list goes on and on... but I'm sure you get the point! : )

This^ is why a proxy service would be useful, in my opinion! : )

Thanks! That is a lovely idea! : D I think it also would also be useful to get an idea of, when a package arrives in the mail, e.g. if it takes 15 workdays. : )

Hi Kevin,

As an alternative, you could add the official embeddable search box! Just paste the output code into a "Plain Text widget", and you should be good to go. : )

a comment on the General Rambling [LINK] The EU wants to hear your opinion on Copyright reform! - Both for people living inside EU AND outside EU. 5 years and 2 months ago
Hi,

I wanted to share what the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has published on their blog!
The EU wants to hear your opinion on the upcoming Copyright reform.

It's a chance for everyone to make their voice heard on the topic of Copyright.

Here is the blog post by EFF:
https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/01/what-do-you-want-copyright-tell-eu-now

You can both answer on behalf of yourself, AND also on behalf of a company, library etc.

Sorry! My "custom" BBCode tags messed up! : (
It would really be nice to be able to use an actual WYSIWYG-editor! ; ) ...or at least just a cheat sheet! : ) ...try saying that 3 times fast! : P

The trigger could be word-based, like, "where does !jpg go?"

Yeah! That would be nice, too! : )
Maybe it would show the destination URL with {{{s}}}, where the your search query would go.

Quote:
but could also be special character-based like: ?!jpg (to also use it as a quick lookup)

Great idea, too! This would really be a quick and easy way to do it! Like a shortcut. ; )

Another thing that would be useful is to query, "!bang:social" er something and have it display all the !bangs that are under the Social category from the !bangs page
Quote:
This also would also be very handy in many cases. : ) We'd just have to figure a out way to "handle" !bang-categories containing spaces... Ooh, and localized category-names. : )
a reply to a comment on the Instant Answer Idea Random DDG Goodie IA 5 years and 2 months ago
Me too! : D This is an amazing idea! It's so essential, and I think it would be really a nice way of letting people know "What is a goodie?". BTW, that might actually be a nice trigger query! : P
