Deeply irritating

Google's just launched a new thing which alerts you to websites which might harm your computer - with scripts and so on. Thing is, 100% of the sites I've tried to visit in the last half hour may, apparently, harm my computer. There's no link on the blocker page to carry on regardless, so I am expending many keystrokes more than I would like. Bad google. Fail.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
