How long is this annoying logo going to persist. Google are always changing their logos to celebrate something or other but the current one means nothing to me, I'm afraid to say.

Tell me. What would you use the 1 second for if the logo did not delay?

I thought that they only kept their 'special' logos up and running for a day or so?

I am typing this email in bed and it's 6-40am on a warm Sunday morning and itis going to be hot, apparently - 80F!!

An Email you are typing?

Get out of bed earlier by about half a minute. If the delay is only 1 second for the Logo that will allow you 30 searches without eating into your day too much. :clap

But you did say it was annoying did you not? :stare:

You should be able to edit your CP now BTW.

What part of the world are you in?

Other side of the world - London, I think.

I like the Logo - it's a bit of lighthearted fun, and we would all be doing with a bit of that. Certainly, it makes my day just that little bit brighter!:clap

If that's all you have got to worry about, then your life must be pretty dull

I would suggest you stop using the trampoline inside.

It could cause damage to the ceiling.

If there is delay, then make sure you're using the best browser possible for Javascript processing, as some are considerably slower than others.

IMO it's a great idea, and why not? :)

Some people just complain for the sake of complaining ...

To all PC Techs .... don't forget to bill the customer for the 30 second delay !

Over the next millennia, this will add up to a substantial amount ... and don't forget to file the appropriate GST forms !!
