And it reminds me of Altavista back in '99.

Has this been the case for awhile?

(Not sure if this is the correct category for the post).

It looks pretty uncuil (it always did), but it doesn't look dead to me.

Over the past few days they've been crawling some of my sites at a greater frequency, so there's still a pulse.

They still haven't fixed that ridiculous mis-matched image problem. They show my sites with images that have nothing to do with them and my images are on other listings.

Cuil had one big chance and they blew it. It would take a miracle for them to get another shot.

For them to bomb something so basic as displaying at least an image from the site that was searched is pretty bad. I think they would've had a great chance of success had they worked out a few basic issues.

Based on their traffic, I would say this one is well done. Very unfortunate.
