Google 403 Forbidden Error? A Pain In The Neck

This is really one of the most frustrating thing that can happen when dealing with Google – the Google 403 Forbidden Error

While trying to download an application from Google Code, I was shown the unfriendly 403 forbidden page that totally shut down the download.

The page suggested that my computer was infected with virus and wanted me to install a virus scanner and check for virus. The fact is, I am using Ubuntu and there’s is definitely no virus on my machine (there is also no virus for Linux OS at this moment).

I guess it could be my network problem, so I switched my DHCP to manual IP configuration. Yup, that didn’t work as well.

I have enough of that. Just want to thank Google for giving me such a ‘deliberate surprise’ on Christmas.

God bless you, Google!
