Hawk-eyed

Sheikh Zayed road is full of new billboards proclaiming the wonders of Falcon City - at least seven wonders at last count. It's a shame that the logo looks nothing like a falcon (and looks like it says TC not FC) but I guess an apartment in Budgie City just wouldn't be as desirable.

Incidentally, when googling Falcon City, it resulted in the following message from Google.

We're sorry...... but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

Sinister forces at work? Quite possibly - and that's before broaching the topic of why anyone would want to recreate the Eiffel Tower in the middle of the desert. As the Eiffel Tower isn't one of the seven wonders of the world, it could be a sign of impending French invasion.

No - everyone here is getting that - as well as some weird "sorry, page not found on server" errors.

We think it's something to do with Etishite's useless assignation of IP addresses (about two shared between the entire UAE, which makes us all look like spammers).

Yeah, I'm getting that message nearly all the time now - it's really getting on my nerves.

And so is Falcon City - what a tacky idea!

Falcon city has failed, they found out the guy had no money and it's all been scrapped, i'm surprised the ads are still up

I also get the same message from Google, so I've stopped using it as a search engine. Sod 'em!
