    Google Problems

    Google seems to be throwing up pages saying my searches resemble ones that a bot would make :!: and I have to enter the word on the screen to continue.

    Is this happening to anyone else (or have they just got my number :P )

    regards

    Simon

    e.g daemon tools silent install
    or
    moodle changing header

    http://codingo.net/blog/?p=14#more-14 this guy suggests it could be happening because of too many google queries on a single ip

    Re: Google Problems

    I've tried those searches Simon, and I didn't have any problem.
    The connection in Cumbria is the same as Lancs, and ultimately JANET, so I'm assuming that it's not a CLEO problem

    Re: Google Problems

    Its just the sheer amount of traffic to google from our very few CLEO IPs means that google gets suspicious of all the activity. You just have to put up with it .

    If you sign into your Gmail then do google searches you can bypass the IP antibot filter.

    Same here, it's all down to google thinking all the kids are a single spam bot.
