Interesting Twist

Not too long ago, Reb Akiva Shlita of Mystical Paths wrote an article about the internet being available also on Shabbat but some sites close down for Shabbat even though it's different times zones around the world. The entire article can be read here.

Someone must have read Reb Akiva's legitimate complaint and decided to do something about it... Since Shabbat takes almost 50 hours globally, why should someone who lives in Australia and opens the internet after Shabbat is still unable to see Shomer Shabbat web sites in Israel or America?

The Twist
Introducing SaturdayGuard - if someone from Los Angeles opens a website in Israel, where Shabbat already began, the LA person will be able to view the site. In other words, sites closed for Shabbat is based according to the visitor's location.

SaturdayGuard offers a 14 day free trial and I guess after that, it's not for free.
