Why is quote finder not working anymore? I use it all the time. There is only this message :
Ooops, this page is currently disabled.
Can anybody tell me what is going on?

Trying to pinpoint the server troubles a few weeks ago, I disabled a couple of apps, to give the server time to run fine for some weeks. Then I can put back certain apps, after evaluating if they could cause bottlenecks (if so, I would probably need to decide whether to keep them or to permanently disable them...).

For more information on the server troubles, pls send me an email if you're interested.

Quotefinder is now enabled again (for the time being).

Does this just report Google's count from a phrase search?
Is there something else to it?

I checked quotefinder's backlinks.
There are three results.
Each also links to other related tools.

George, the idea is that you can paste a paragraph or two and it will "alert" you when it thinks that a certain sentence is actually a quote.
