A Search That Actually Worked!

I had given up on search engines until this morning. I opened up MSN.com to see the new search service (MSN’s rival to Google) along side Bill Gates’ photo. I figured I’d try it out. I typed in a search string and for the first time ever, I got the exact page I wanted as the first-listed result. OMG!

Of course, I wondered if somehow all the search engines wised up overnight, so I went to Google with the same search string. No luck. Not even in the first 10 pages of results. I tried Yahoo. Same thing. I tried the new, supposedly cool a9.com and the a9.com server was so battered it just died. And died again. And then would only load two images, then cough up an error. So much for hip. Maybe ‘broken hip’.

So now I tip my proverbial hat to MSN for making a search worthwhile. Thanks Bill.
