    It might be a link but it doesn't work...
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Yes it does

    I like this - when you use the Google tool and go to China, the text reads "Chinese officials consider censorship demands as state secrets, so we cannot disclose that information at this time."

    Even the censorship requests are censored!! So much for Google transparency...

    No it doesn't - This is what FF says you have to alter the actual link to get it to work correctly.
