As you may have noticed, we’re having some issues with search at the moment (yes…it’s broken!!!) and it appears some code may have changed in the Google API. Our team of trained monkeys is working frantically to fix the problem.
This has come at a bad time as it is last thing on Friday here and we’re really under the pump. If you can bear with us hopefully search will be back up and running shortly.
Thanks and keep rippling.
UPDATE 15/02/2009: We’ve got some word from a Google employee that they have identified the problem and are working on it. Hopefully this will be resolved quickly. Stay tuned and keep an eye on the blog for more updates.
UPDATE 16/02/2009: All fixed! Thanks for your patience.

As many people are already aware, this shocking disaster has already made headlines around the world and claimed the lives of over 180 people, with the toll still rising. Entire communities have been wiped out and we have all been deeply affected. Day after day shocking and heartbreaking stories continue to emerge as the full horror of what transpired on Black Saturday continues to unfold.
This is very close to home for us, some of the worst fires occurring in the outskirts of Melbourne, Rippleâ€™s home town. We all know people who have been affected, saw their houses and property destroyed, or worse yet, lost friends or loved ones.
The cost of this disaster has been estimated at over $1.5 billion.
The Red Cross are providing aid, accommodation, medical support, and food for over 7500 people.
Please take a moment to consider donating to assist the effort in rebuilding these shattered communities and helping those who have lost everything.
