NO-ONE EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!!!

I see you've been coding in Python again!

Found this link in google's help center...you may have to contact them

"How do I stop Google.com from redirecting to another Google domain?"

Thanks!

The plan for world dominance is going as expected. With the inadvertent help of those dumbasses fine guys at Google, the Spanish Empire will rise again!!
¡Hola!
Viva España

cranioscopical, maybe you're using a proxy and you forgot to set things back to normal? (I hope you're not being proxyed by the action of a trojan, our methods are not that rude tongue)

The same thing happens with both Firefox and IE, other search engines don't do this.
If I enter google.com into the address bar, or if I enter anything into the search box, off I go to google.es
If I enter an explicit google address into the address bar then I go to, e.g. google.ca

I've killed off any and all google cookies then 'reset' to english.
Nothing I've run here so far has found a trojan at work (although my grumbling has left me hoarse).

Thanks to you all for the helpful replies.
I'm poking around trying to sort out what's happening and all of your suggestions are useful.

Appreciated...

Do you have a google account, chris? Maybe the "country" option unter "my account" / "Edit personal information" is wrong.

Nope, I don't have a Google account.

Does this work?

P.

Gets me here, but with English labels.   huh
3757  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Inadvertent Googling in Spanish on: January 13, 2008, 08:39:20 PM
Are you in spain? smiley

I suppose not, but if you were, that'd be normal.

To get back to the english version, go to "preferences" ("Preferencias"), on the main page, then select "english" in the " Idioma de la interfaz" pulldown menu and press "guardar preferencias" at the top-right. Wink

Thanks for the quick reply, and I can do all that, including setting inglés and saving.
However, the next call to Google takes me back to http://www.google.es/
So, what your suggestion does is to let me see an English interface on http://www.google.es/

If I close and reopen, say Firefox, I'm back to Spanish so, saved or not, something doesn't stick.

This makes no real difference to me as I'm as inept in Spanish as I am in English but I'm puzzled about why/how this happened. smiley
 
I'll force it to Google.ca, that works.

Hi everyone.

I just noticed  that my Google searches take me to Google España.
Also, if I explicitly enter http://www.google.com/ that's converted to http://www.google.es/.

The same thing happens with both Firefox and IE, other search engines don't do this.

Anyone know why this happens?

TIA

3759  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Deleting Files From the ..\Local Settings\Temp\ Folder on: January 13, 2008, 04:07:06 PM
On XP Pro Sp2 I close down most applications and clean out %temp% regularly, say once a week, without ill effects (AFAIK).

If you're as forgetful as I, it's a good idea to check first, with something like Why Reboot before cleaning up, in case you tread on something that's pending.

If this is folly I'm sure I'll be instructed by whatever follows here  smiley

That would have been like us changing our posting style to gri's because he insisted upon it.

Reason why if to be "me, me, gri" grivitagniks knick-knaks not?

 ohmy

Good luck with the recovery to full health!

I'm not sure about the going-back-to-work part, though  smiley

3762  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What kind of tagging system would be appropriate for DC? on: January 11, 2008, 10:30:54 AM
In my view no tagging/filtering system would be appropriate for DC unless there is a significant majority demand for one.
A more apt response could be avoidance of the site by those who are unhappy.
3763  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What should I do with my audio CDs? on: January 11, 2008, 10:17:09 AM
I'd keep them.

Personally, I prefer a physical medium.
That's particularly true when I want to peruse notes, perhaps while listening.
I found it difficult enough abandoning the larger-format sleeve notes that came with vinyl LPs .

Alternatively, you could try a variant of this.

It show that, a little break to consider things before you react, may help you building a good relationship with your troubled consumers, with all the benefits this poses.

My troubled customers certainly deserve a little break from me.  I usually try for the neck!  Wink

Veign: I'm not sure I could classify a website posting Google Ads as being (or becoming) commercial.

Well, I must respectfully disagree with that.
Raising revenue from advertising is, by definition, a commercial venture.
I make my living from advertising and there is just no other way to describe it.
What do you call those intervals between TV programming that tout products and services?   smiley

Whether or not that commercialism is inappropriate or discordant is an entirely different matter.

For me, the very concept of DonationCoder is tightly bound to a stated philosophy that eschews commercialism,
and that concept is very much a part of the unique standing that DonationCoder enjoys. Remember, once something
like that standing has been compromised there is no guarantee that it can be repaired.

If the objective here to is make profit (nothing wrong with that -- we all do, I hope) then that aim seems out of step
with the stated ideals and goals of the community. It is the misalignment between advertising and the
DonationCoder philosopy that strikes me as dicordant. 

Perhaps the issue is one of context. The whole idea here is that this is a sharing community and it worries me
that the spirit of altruism that pervades it will be diminished. I submit that how people perceive this community
will not be enhanced by the advent of advertising.

Veign, I must add that what I say here is in no way meant to denigrate your obvious desire to create a benefit for DC.

3771  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Ideas to make DC even better on: December 26, 2007, 05:02:09 PM
Interesting ideas, and certainly valid in a lot of situations.

I hope you won't be offended if I say that I feel associating these with DonationCoder seeems a bit of an awkward juxtaposition of the commercial with the determinedly non-commercial.

It  seems to me that the whole thing was  just right. 

Well done, Darwin (shame Mouser can't do one as well as that).
