Does anyone remember?

Does anyone remember the name of that search engine, where you would go into a chatroom with someone who worked for the site, and ask them for search results?

I had nostalgic feelings today about all the random copy and paste conversations we used to stick up on here a few years ago.

aaaaah, good times.
You wake up at Seatac, SFO, LAX. You wake up at O'Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, BWI. Pacific, mountain, central. Lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time. You wake up at Air Harbor International. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

It has zero political or cultural value. It is reactionary in the worse sense: a gnarled wailing of a million broken losers joined in the comradery of hate and petty personal grievance.

it was oceans 80 right

Ask me why I hate
Why I've prayed to see the nation that I loved disintegrate
And gladly give my life
That revolution regenerates.
In honor of the strife of those who've died
In generations before for your blood stained glory
I reject you
I deny you
I defy you to continue.

google, yuhoo, and bingo...faster at finding all sorts of shit... you weren't looking for.

Yahoo and Bing blow, but if you can't get google to give you the results you need, it's user error. Google is the shit.

Oh Scrubby, at least your memory still exists and your domin functions now more as a shrine than a usable search engine.
