      How bizarre Sue. I’ll just come to you when I need to translate some stuff ha ha! Looks like it may be a rollout – as we are finding it is affecting a large number of machines in various countries. It worked on my desktop PC as recently as yesterday morning. Doesn’t seem to be a pattern to it. A rollout perhaps? Pre “charging”? Elle xx

    So… within the hour I am number one on for “Potato soup recipe from Albox” – but then of course I am local to myself – *rolls eyes*

    Thanks for the mentions I have tried it on over 10 different machines and in other contacts in different countries and I conclude Google are going to start charging nothing unusual there then!!!

      I did come across a lady who said it stopped working for her before mine stopped. Hopefully it’s just a glitch (like the one that stopped me from adding a website to Google Analytics earlier… by not allowing me to fill out a couple of fields this afternoon). Thanks for flagging it up earlier Chris – this may have avoided some people getting stuck before their’s switches over. Elle xx

      Good stuff Julia. Hopefully it is just a Google glitch… and not a rollout of a chargeable service xxxxx

    Still working under Linux and Chrome in the Canary Islands, but I got it all done today, just in case.

    Update: This all seems to be working fine now – so obviously just Google on its period at the time. Bad form!
