    Hi all,

    Google has started doing 'captcha' thingies for all of us here for anything we search for. Is it just us or is it affecting others too?

    We have that occasionally. I'm guessing it's due to a large number of hits either from the school individually or maybe from all the local schools bundled together, but either way, it seems to clear after a short while.

    You need to get your provider to contact Google. Google sees one ip address and hundreds of queries (due to proxy) it starts thinking you are a bot.
