Mojeek search is back up & running. It's the first power failure to affect us since moving to the data centre, >10 years ago. Some search results may not show snippets until all our infrastructure recovers; a small number of the servers were affected by the power loss.

Update: Mojeek search is down after a power trip at our data centre partner Custodian. This was caused by a component failure in a new power chassis being installed. Power is now restored and further work is in progress. Some of our servers have been affected.

Attention Mojeek users. Search is currently not working. The rest of our site is OK. We are investigating this urgently.

It's the first time in several years we have been down. Further updates as soon as restored or other information to report. Thank you for your patience.

@savely @privacybrowser Hey Savely, any chance of getting some more information to: mojeek.com/about/contact specifically your IP so we can check it out?

Online ID / age verification: the death of online search, and non-browser web access?

A (public) draft of a blog post on an unintended, perhaps unnoticed, effect of the current push for ID / #ageverification online.

Feedback welcome.

Our CEO has written to Sundar Pichai after his BBC interview.

We share concerns about threats to internet freedom, though we don't see 'AI to AI' on how search is done.

Will Google work with us to protect human rights? (Spoiler: the answer is no).

The road to cyberhell is paved with good intentions. The UK Bill is the proposed map for the road. Coming to your country too, if you are not already on it.

Consumers, businesses, and democracy are harmed by surveillance advertising.

With 13 other privacy-first companies, we sent a joint letter encouraging regulators to take action.

@older @privacybrowser Indeed. But every character is prefixed with %D0 and that was a signal showing up in bot attacks. We might have been overzealous in our defences, or even messed up. As you saw and pointed out it was killing human queries. Anyway, apologies about that and thanks for highlighting the issue.

@privacybrowser @older Many thanks for your input and persistence. We learned that Cyrillic characters have a specifc URL encoding which we were not handling appropriately.

@Mojeek @privacybrowser Seems to be fixed. Now I get actual response instead of http status 403.
Now, wake me up, when it supports Ukrainian, I might consider switching ;)
