services.google.com leads to a blue page and the following message: <<This space intentionally left blank>>

although Google Translation (or Google in Your Language) works fine!!
and its URL is:
http://services.google.com/tcbin/tc.py

whats going on out there?!

plus,
an interesting URL:
http://services.google.com/tc/
gives you the following message:
<<Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /tc/ on this server.>>
while i was searching for more links from Google services, ive noticed the URL above, doesnt allow normal users use it altough this one works just fine:
http://services.google.com/tc/faq.html

..hmm.. interesting..

Checked out the robots file
http://services.google.com/robots.txt

and found this

User-agent: *
Allow: /university
Allow: /adwordseditor
Disallow: /

A quick jump to http://services.google.com/university/ brings up a new page

I have seen this before a while ago, but I was actually searching for this page recently .. something like Google Education, etc... and I navigated through Google's website to try and find it and it was very difficult to find!

Thanks for posting the link to that! I'm finally I found where it is again.
