My wife made me a new spreadsheet so I could do all the research faster (she's the best, lol.) and the next time I type in a keyword on the search page I get this:
... but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.
See Google Help (link removed) for more information.
I go to the help page and it says I might be using automated software, which I'm not, which is against their TOS. And that it might be from some mailicious malware, etc. And that I should see a captcha code to verify I'm real. But nope, no captcha code to verify if I'm a person who might have a reason to be searching so much on their home page.
So now I'm wondering how long they won't let me search?
