I apologize for the issues. We are aware of them and are in the process of fixing them. I just pushed a temporary fix and we're looking towards more permanent fixes in the next 48 hours.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Currency conversion not working anymore 3 years and 9 months ago
Unfortunately, we won't be using Wolfram|Alpha any more in the short term. The community via DuckDuckHack is actively working on replacements, however. Currency is particular is nearing completion and should be faster and better shortly! We'd of course welcome any help on the instant answer platform, which is all open source.

This a common misconception. All headers (including the full URL and search terms embedded in it) are encrypted on a GET request: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18765...

This general idea (though not the specifics) is how it works. We have automated systems that determine on the fly (in memory) whether something is a bot or not and then mark it as such. The most prevalent bot is actually Googlebot, which is extremely easy to detect in nginx.

As for the AWS question, we use encryption by default, which encrypts HTTP headers and those the search query. Actually the end server isn't all that matters. If you don't use HTTPS then actually lots of servers between you and us could intercept your search term. Just do a trace route between you and any Internet site. However, with encryption these headers are encrypted when they travel across the Internet.
