Max number of time to query Google?

I'm considering starting a project that will require heavy querying of Google (and Yahoo etc).

I can't get an API key anymore, so I'm just wondering if I can 'hammer' Google as much as I like/need or will my server IP get banned/blocked?

I think you already know the answer to that question.

Automated queries are not permitted. [google.com]

Ooops, genuinely didn't know that - I thought a few might be ok.
