I found this cool search engine the other day and just thought some of you may not have seen it. It is called allth.at It is a meta-search engine with extra kick. No, I'm not affiliated with them nor do i get anything out of it. I just thought it was cool.
I like its ability to search thru as many search engines as you'd like it seems to do well enough. I tried adding and deleting search engines and it is quite easy. Altavista doesn' seem to interact well with it, but it just still cool.
