If you amend the .co.uk ending to .com/ncr all will be back to normal. Or "temporarily" as Google puts it. The purpose of this is to allow Google to render posts unseeable in certain countries but not others...
Of course, politicians will want to make the entire Internet "unseeable".
Echo (the commenting company) has provided me with some code that's meant to solve this problem. So far it doesn't. I do see however that the .dot.com version still appears on the Safari browser but not on Firefox.
I imagine that UK blogs that use Google's own commenting system aren't affected by this. I use Echo because this blog and its template predate Google's purchase of Blogger. I'm not sure that an update to a new Google template is viable given my desire to keep the historical comments.
Does any reader know what I can do about this?
In return I offer a way of becoming the richest person in the world.
All you need to do is to produce software that's guaranteed NEVER to be updated without the user's specific approval. Ant failure to meet this commitment would result in a large payment of gold bullion being transferred to the victim. But which bank is safe enough to keep the necessary gold in escrow?
(UPDATE: Thanks to Echo for fixing this.)
