    Yep. In fact 11 years is quite old for a search engine. I remember when it started. Alta Vista, Excite and such like were the normal search engines. Google was new when we included it in a performance survey of the top search engines in 1998-99 at university, but it came out top of the list.

    Yeah, it's so that we will look into it further, probably by using Google itself.
