OT - can't search at Clavius
« on: August 09, 2012, 12:35:07 AM »
This is a little off-topic, but I can't do a search at Clavius.  I get this error message:

As fa as I know, my computer isn't sending automated queries.  Why can't I do a search?

Just tried it myself. Same error message.

Until Jay can fix it use the Google site search option:  site:www.clavius.org search term

As JayUtah noted a couple of days ago, the correct place for Clavius feedback would be this subforum: http://www.apollohoax.net/forum/index.php?board=5.0

Incidentally, the same error has already been reported there, but it's without a follow-up.

Yeah it's not your computer that is making automated queries.  Apparently Google has RBL'ed the hosting company's computer.  I'm working with them to fix it.

I get it too. I have to use domain search on bing most of the time.

The update on that is ... still in Google's court.  I'll ping them again.
