@codl you really really really gotta hammer them to get banned, i've done sustained 3-4 requests a second without being banned in the past
@codl I've written a browser extension that opens all submission links on a page into new tabs with a default rate limit of 1 sec per link, which is almost always fine. If the site is under heavy load it will sometimes start throwing 503s but it's rare. I imagine each link generates at least a couple of requests.
@codl wow, it's literally just a list of "here's all the UTC offsets that are currently used in time zones"
but just the UTC offsets, no other time zone rules?
I'd expect the daylight savings time support to be broken on this site (like, does it handle north vs south hemisphere, or changes by a different amount than 1h?)
@kepstin yeah i have no idea, there is a checkbox for dst but that's it
and i have to *reverse* that mystery dst since i'm making a scraper
