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.

There's a knock at your door
You don't even recognize the stranger
It's you from before
Tryin' to warn you all about the dangers
There's a hole in your head
At least that's what everybody's guessing
It's why you're always misread
It's why you sleep but you never feel rested
You never get your rest in

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.
