Google????

Has anyone tried to go to Google today?  I just tried, and got a screen that said my computer was sending automated requests.  I had to enter one of those security codes to confirm I was human lol

I was wondering what the heck it was all about, since they are know for changing the website occasionally.  Then we figured it may have been related to what we were talking about earlier.  Apparantly yesterday some UFO nuts, were predicting some sort of worldwide mass UFO sighting.  So, maybe today, google wants to confirms that it's not aliens trying to automatically  access Google......

Someone else try it and see what it does, please.

Well, I am on a big server,

Well, I am on a big server, that has many many firewalls.  But, something must have happened, cause I did a search (Google) for that error message, and I see that other people have gotten it over the last couple of years.  I just found it funny how they worded it.... "To confirm that you're human".  Too funny.

LOL.. thats funny, some of

LOL.. thats funny, some of our systems and tools we use at work have the same thing , we have to type a code to verify we are human, on the open web though thats usally caused by a comp that has spywhare on it, those nasty little programs try to sent automated request all the time. and spy on everything your doing on-line and report it back to the host so they can send you those nice little popups and steal info from your comp.
