Certainly we've heard tales through the years of different ways that people have problems reaching Google, but it's usually isolated reports--things like companies that accidently exclude their users from Google by doing things like hardwiring their IP addresses for Google and then setting a very long time-to-live (TTL). I think everyone should be able to reach Google--is anybody having problems currently? Things seem fine to me from home. :)
You can set google.com as your homepage using a cookie setting so that you'll never get google.ca by mistake.
LOL! Change my homepage from Webmaster World to Google? That's not something I am willing to do.
My Google bar goes to google.ca as well.
Although I am curious about your IP address now.
I'd be happy to give it to you if you want.
If you have a bad mismatch between your IP address and where Google thinks you are, you can use [services.google.com...] to let us know. I'd only use this form for clear things like "I'm in the U.S. and you think I'm in Germany," not stuff like "My home company is in Germany, but I proxy through France, but live in the U.K., with a Danish ISP, and you show me google.de instead of google.co.uk" or something really complicated like that. :)
