Don't know if anybody has noticed this yet but I can no longer just type in a datacenters IP and do a search...it redirects to google.com no matter what IP I try to do a search from.

You can put the IP in but once you click the search button or hit enter the URL defaults to www.google.com (not the IP) along with the search string...Not happening for you tedster?

Are you logged in to Google?

(Haven't tried it while logged in).

OK - you're right. The search results come back on a google.com URL, and that URL is on an IP address with a different C-block.

No, I'm not logged in, I had actually thought the same thing possibly, maybe it had to do with my google account, but nope. No matter what it reverts to www.google.com no matter what IP I do the search on once I click either the search button or I click enter it reverts to www.google.com and the IP on the cache links are completely different than the IP I even start with. Now the question is why is Google doing this? :> To me this would definitely mean the end of DC watching.

MLHmptn, I've been seeing the same for about two weeks. Find a DC tool that bypasses it.
