I'm sorry to see AV go, like losing an old friend who was kind to you in the past, but it was only a matter of time.
Yahoo needed to get all its energy into one program, it makes sense. Whether the price it paid to buy them out of the market makes sense is another question.....time will tell.
Hmm...I have a really niche amateur site that so far this month has got 125 hits from AV web search. Yeah, this is well below even MSN and ask.com. However, I'd consider this significant for an e-commerce site if AV traffic converted OK. Particularly if profits per conversion were good. AV may not be a powerhouse. However, it ain't at the Wiseneut level either.
Since I cut my teeth on DEC PDP-11 and VAX systems, and digital developed altavista, it makes me feel like that whole world is now gone. It was promising and good when it lasted...
