For a few days, Google looks very weird (set to display messages in English)



Below is just a part of it. Basically, r and l is replaced by w, from what I\'ve seen. Has anyone noticed that too, or is there something fishy about my computer?

Instead of \"English\", you probably clicked \"Elmer Fudd\", which is just above...

I don´t have that problem, but I think if you post this in the Technical Support or the Translator Resources forums you\'ll be more likely to get some help.



Good luck with it!

He ain't kidding Jul 21, 2002

Maybe you guys thought Serge was kidding. I did too, but on the off chance he wasn\'t, clicked on what he says. It\'s true!

Google in \"Ewmew Fudd\". Fabulous!
