I'm rarely on XMPP or IRC. You can reach me at caine@duckduckgo.com.

We're talking about the bulk cipher, not message authentication.

These changes are now live on DuckDuckGo.com[1] and are rolling out to the Community Platform shortly.

I thought a lot about this when we hardened our cipher suite preferences a while ago. I determined it was not worth the performance hit considering the tremendous requirements to practically attack RC4[2]. At this point I think IE 6/8 on Windows XP accounts for such a small amount of traffic that I can't see any reason not to try it out. It's impossible for us to understand for sure how much traffic comes from those clients because we don't track it; but I am very comfortable estimating it at a very low percentage :).

Thanks for bringing this back up! Let's see where it goes.

This is one of the first improvements we plan to implement! Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for the feedback. We are in the process of updating the Maps implementation right now. I agree it has the potential to be one of the coolest and most useful IAs. We are also trying to wrap directions support in at the same time. We are solidifying the Places implementation first, and the rolling into Maps/Directions more seriously. http://ddg.gg/?q=thai+in+nyc
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Using Wikidata 3 years and 10 months ago
I like this stuff! I've seen it before, but only really considered it useful for relational / explore queries. We have a project that's been on hold for a while called 'explore mode' that would allow users to explore the WP dataset from the SERP in an associative manner. What information in Wikidata really shines? I'm sure there is a ton I'm missing.

We've deployed a fix for this. Sorry about that!

Noted on the spacing. We will work on it. As for the toggled style, it's not as clear as the (X).

Noted! We will fix this before the official launch.
