I still think Lycos could be something, I would suggest they do something with that site design.
They really need to take a look at their services, as it looks like they are the same as every other search engine/portal. Just nothing stands out about them for me. I'm sure someone there could think of some cool ideas for their clients/users. They really need a brand new attack plan.
What is their current state in the SE wars, are they still a player?

It's a shame that a brand like lycos just kind of died overnight, I remember the all adverts, and it wasn't that long ago since I saw one either.
Maybe that's why they died, no brand advertising, couldn't stay in the race without it. It's a real shame.
Although I never used Lyco's engine, I liked the name as it sticks in my mind, but I commented on another thread about engines suddenly going under, and I think it's wrong to let something like Lycos just die without doing something with it.
Where is the fight from them? Or are they lying dormant as I think they got taken over?
