If you clicked on any of the hotlinks in my review of the British Newspaper Archive you might have been taken to an address with “www1.” at the start. If you were also using IE or Firefox this might have resulted in your browser warning you about a security risk. It’s a false alarm; a minor glitch that stems from the addition of the “1″ after “www”. The BNA have assured us that their website is completely secure and that the problem has now been resolved. I’ve fixed the links in my own review – if you’ve linked to the archive on your own blog it would be worth double checking to make sure that the address is correct.

Thanks to Charles Robinson for alerting me to the problem.
