a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Change the name DuckDuckGo to something more professional (not sounding childisch) 2 years and 9 months ago
Considering the name is a pun on a children's game (Duck Duck Goose) where the object is to avoid being "it", I would say the name is fitting and smart. Third party advertisers would love nothing more than for us all to be "it" or the "goose" and I suspect the name DuckDuckGo derived out of rebellion to that paradigm.

Nevermind. Found it under "iPhone only" apps.
a comment on the General Rambling Where's your search app for iPad mini? 2 years and 10 months ago
I can't find it. When I search with my iPad mini in the app store all that comes up is InstaDuck. My iPad is running 8.4.1.

Looked in the iTunes store and it doesn't come up there either.

Thanks.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling can't copy & paste to duck duck 2 years and 10 months ago
Also, for the record, the same thing occurs for me when I try to use right click to paste after "19" on Google.

I was able to replicate it but I seldom right click when pasting so never encountered it. What I usually do is use the keyboard to paste (and copy) and I was able to paste "98 cadillac seville sls" after the "19" just fine.

i forgot to mention I did everything I just detailed in my previous post in safari.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling How to re-select no region? 2 years and 10 months ago
After a few tries, I was able to deselect my country for no region. It didn't work when I tried it by clicking on the flag on the results page and selecting "clear". So I went into advanced settings and chose "no region selected" did a search test and it still identified my region as the U.S. I thought maybe it was some kind of refresh issue so, on the results page, I clicked the flag and selected "clear" one more time and that has seem to have stuck after a few search tests.

Well, it hasn't happened again because I haven't tried setting a region again after I fixed it with firefox. But if you want me to reproduce it in safari again I probably could.

My current json settings are:

{"kae":"d","k5":"1","k7":"042f09","k8":"f2f6cd","k9":"a83d0e","kaa":"667b86","kah":"wt-wt","kak":"-1","kj":"0a310e","kx":"905914","ky":"152003"}

I was able to get it to switch back to no region opening firefox. Now it is says no region selected in safari too.

I couldn't find how to run safari in safe mode. Is that the same as starting my computer in safe mode and then just opening safari? Rebooting is kind of a lot of work for me. :)
