Do google have a problem today?

Tried using google - every his is listed with "this site may harm your computer" - this applies even if you google for google itself!

Clicking the link takes you to a warning page that invites you to go to a diagnostic page - but that link fails (presumably due to server load!).

Edit - if it matters I am using Firefox v2.0.0.14 in Linpus Lite.

Yes, in an average company the IT guy can bluff his way out of most situations using geek/techie talk, but that might not be quite so easy there!

Here's what went wrong.

Actually .. now that you mention it .. there were a couple of times I went to their page a few days ago where the google name was not readable, I know they change the characters a lot, but this was a jumbled illegible mess, and they do pride themselves in having a very clean font page ! I wonder if that had anything to do with it ?

I noticed that too. Disgruntled employee perchance?
