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.

So lets just keep eating more, more, more, more and more

And then we all go throw up on the poor
If I could talk to you
And only speak the truth

We are so happy
happy to see
all of our children will run blind and free

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.
