a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Problem with security certificates on duckduckgo.com ¨This connection is untrusted¨How to fix it? 2 years and 8 months ago
I had this briefly with duckduckhack.com yesterday but it works now and duckduckgo.com is fine.

You could try re-installing the relevant certificates which are issued by DigiCert and available here:
https://ssl-tools.net/webservers/duckduc...

Click on the "Secure Server CA" and "Global Root CA" links and download the PEM files. If they're not already installed you'll get a dialog box prompting you to install. For trust, the three checkboxes should be all checked for the "Global Root CA" certificate and all unchecked for the "Secure Server CA" certificate.

Alternatively go to Preferences -> Advanced -> Certificates -> View Certificates -> find the DigiCert section. You could try editing or deleting/importing the "Global Root CA" and "Secure Server CA" certificates as above.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Search relevancy when searching non-English with no region enabled 2 years and 8 months ago
For Japanese there's a very slight improvement in the results but not very noticeable. A bigger difference is the fact that titles are truncated in regional search. Not sure why - the global untruncated titles are fine:

WebKnox has a Jokes API and searching using "category=knock knock" seems to work.

Japan, with its blue skies and earthquakes.
a comment on the General Rambling Handling empty image results 2 years and 11 months ago
Occasionally there are searches that produce a "no results here" message in the IA section (see attached screenshot). Maybe in these cases the behaviour could be to not show the IA section at all, or alternatively to populate it with the top image results. At the moment, all we see is a sad face but we want DDG users to be happy!
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling top result is 404 - how to report broken link? 2 years and 11 months ago
Just found another 404 result: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=2011+senior+re...

Good to hear about the plans for a "report broken link" button, maybe in the side menu for example.
a reply to a comment on the Instant Answer Idea Astronomy Picture of the Day 2 years and 11 months ago
Thank you! I was thinking of using the API to show the current picture of the day, perhaps with the previous days' pictures alongside. Also it would be good to trigger it with "apod" as well. I'm happy to send a PR if you like.

Just discovered someone's made a JSON API for the APOD RSS feed so this should be straightforward to make as a spice. I'll have a go...
