I'm back now.  I get that frowning face too. It says "the extension" has
been blocked. In other words, the University of Adelaide used to share all
their hard work and texts with this Internal Archive. Discovering that
people were still reaching the Adelaide texts, they blocked the extension.

What interests me is the texts are still there. It was a vast archive
which must've taken a lot of work to put up even if they had sophisticated
software to reproduce text or whole books. So they've not thrown it all
away, but blocked the public from accessing it.  The next step would be to
discover if all these texts are no longer available to the people at the
University. And if they are planning to make a paywall and charge -- or
sell it off and let someone else charge.

Just a few thoughts,
Ellen Moody
