Yep. I quite like Wisenet engine. Better than Looksmart, mmmmm I dunno, Looksmart is established though, and they have big plans for moving into the vertical engine marketplace.

I haven't heard much from Wisenut though - are they owned by someone else now?

No, their still owned by LookSmart. I don't think their search results are that great, there are a lot of good sites that still are not in the index.

That sounds like something people say in Google sandbox threads.

Hmmm, its close but no cigar.

It passed my actor search (most search engines return lots of irrelevant and false movie links)

But, for our own site the listing was over 6 months out of date, and there were not so many returned results as their should be.

Results don't seem to be too bad for certain queries.

What is with their logo though? It looks like some little kid has been stabbed in the eye :-/
