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?

    Long time reader, first time poster here! I have received the “you’re computer may be sending automated queries” message for the past two days, They (Google) gave options on how to remedy the situation – such as seeing if the computer has malware – but I am still unable to use the search function.

    My google worked fine just now. Maybe they fixed it?

    I still can’t search Charley. It’s been the same message for 2 or 3 days.

    I’ve been getting it for a while.

    I thought it was the macro on my spreadsheet that opens multiple pages at once after I have filtered down to a list of cases.

    There must be another Kat or something….it’s not working here either. Is it just this site or other ones too? Seems kind of strange.

    I’m glad it isn’t just me. It still doesn’t work for me today… it’s been that way for at least a week and a half.
