Google search function on Charley

Two people wrote to me today to say the Google search function on Charley’s frontpage isn’t working. I had actually noticed this sometime last week, but forgot about it entirely. I guess I assumed it was just a temporary glitch. You try to search for something and it says, “We’re sorry, your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can’t process your request right now.”

I’ve written to Google about this. They have a special form to fill in about this error. How many other people are having the same problem?
