a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Design upgrade 4 years and 10 months ago
Last week I attended a series of design classes for desktop program, mobile apps and browser content. There is no doubt that the MS "Metro" design style is being widely accepted on many platforms.

Here are some example web sites that are using this type of design:

http://microsoft.com

http://designmodo.com/square/

http://www.fitbit.com/

A couple of thoughts regarding the flat design:

  1. Not everyone likes it. While it can be a primary design, it's best to have the current "traditional" design available for those that prefer it.

  2. It is important not to lose your product\service\company identification when migrating to the flat design. The design should aid navigation for users, not add complexity.
All that said, I believe that in the immediate future, DDG resources should be spent on higher priority projects.

haha, I just sent him a PM asking the same thing because I didn't want to appear ... uninformed. Momma always said that there's no such thing as a dumb question!

He's one of the Smith Brothers (). Actually, the 0 Click Box states, "Adam Smith (5 June 1723 OS (16 June 1723 NS) – 17 July 1790) was a Scottish moral philosopher and a pioneer of political economy." and there's a wiki link following that.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Why You have only one forum? 4 years and 10 months ago
I agree, all this talk is highly suspicious. Who's arguing with any of your points and what, exactly are you driving at? It is fully understood that the it's possible for DDG to have multiple forums\sub-forums and, as already explained above, there is a moderator only forum. To this point, it hasn't been deemed necessary to have multiple forums or sub-forums. This is a decision base on functionality and not the plan level being used.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling The search page isn't working! 4 years and 10 months ago
If you are running Firefox, try "Restart with Add-Ons Disabled..." and try the various web sites, if they work, you'll know for certain that it's one (or more) of the Add-ons. Restart FF in normal mode and begin disabling add-ons until you find which one is causing the problem.

Since you are experiencing the same issue with other sites, this is clearly not a problem with duckduckgo.com, so you will find it more productive to get support from Mozilla (again, assuming that you are using FF).

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Javascript problem 4 years and 10 months ago
In FF, go to options and verify that  Enable JavaScript is enabled:
 
If that doesn't do the trick, it would seem that the malware and viruses that you had (or the methods used to remove them) have left some residual and negative affects. If that's the case, your issues will be beyond the scope of this forum.

Oh wow, I really appologize for that 2nd link, I was showing that video to my wife, must have gotten it stuck in my clipboard . The link I meant to post was: http://www.askdavetaylor.com/save_url_shortcuts_mac_desktop.html

I'd be very surprised if the first link was "Windows Only", but if you go to duckduckgo.com and enter the search "create web link shortcut on Mac desktop" and you'll get a good number of links, including the one I provided above.

I'm not sure exactly what you're wanting to do, but assume that you want a shortcut on your desktop that will open your browser in duckduckgo.com. I don't use Mac OS, but I do use DuckDuckGo to search for help on how to do things.

My search: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=create+web+link+shortcut+on+Mac+desktop yielded this result: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5mHPo2yDG8
