@154772895663898299874667378828 I don't believe there's any rule that one must bring a source in answers on mi.yodeya. Although it can be helpful...

comment What type of nuts may not be eaten during Elul?
So does that mean other nuts are okay. How can one tell if they will hinder prayer?

@Yahu, and you read my mind. I was thinking of adding what the Kotzker said to the end of my question... Expect I forgot who said it.

comment What is a good way to make one's website inaccessible on Shabbat?
As I said, nothing to do with Halacha. Let's keep it to the aesthetics: User sees page starts loading with real content... Freeze, uh oh! Hey where'd the page go?? Oh my what's this? It's just not real. True. proper redirection doesn't give a sneak preview.

The point here is for more melacha, i.e. after the first hit. By your method, the redirect would happen sometime after the page loads. It makes a lot more sense to do it on the server side, so that the user is immediately taken to the correct destination. This is all for the technical side of the implementation; nothing to do with Halacha

Well changing system clock is annoying: a) if you don't have admin rights b) it can mess up certain programs and authentication systems on your computer c) it messes with your brain if you want to know the time. Besides, if you're using my method, it has nothing to do with their system clock, it's server side
