Google UK is back ! ! !

Just tried Firefox and got the usual Google.uk search page no problem...  Smiley Smiley



( @ strat... thought I`d start a new thread for this as many will still come to chit chat rather than the techy title of DNS whatever)...

You can lock it if you want  Wink

Rather misleading title.

Not really...... up to that time.... I could not get a google page up... apart from one linky listed on another thread by Artmo , which the mods locked, because it "appeared" to be a duplicate thread to one which was talking about DNS... whatever that is.........  So I posted it, for the non-techy nerds like me, who don`t understand all those techy talk threads... ...

Google.com normally redirects to google.co.uk however they do have a method whereby you can access google.com and stay on it.
Google uses a country redirect however they also have a no country redirect method - which is used by adding /ncr onto the end of google.com - here try this:
http://www.google.com/ncr
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

No. Plusnet did, and why the title is misleading...
