New search engine

Former Google folks split off to start their own search engine: http://www.physorg.com/news136426978.html

The results returned when searching for "Festool"?  Nothing earlier today, but now there seems to be some results, hah.

Good Afternoon,
I heard something about this a while back, but forgot about it until you mentioned it again.
Hey, The Festool Owners Group comes up on the first page of the results!

I heard of this new search engine yesterday on the radio, that it was created by former Google employees, touted by its creators to be even better than Google's engine, and that if you are not careful in spelling its name, you are likely to end up on some porn site.  I have not tried that search engine yet.  One of my favorite search engines is Mamma.com because it usually enables me to find what I am looking for and without as much advertisinig garbage that comes with use of Google.  Plugging  "festool owners" in Mamma resulted in a hit list with FOG appearing third from the top.  The nearly all  of the other "hits" were also about Festool owners and their use of Festool products.

Friends, family and Festools make for a good retirement.  PCs...I'm not so sure.

I think Festool is promoting alternative uses for their machines!   ;D

Our partners will be more willing to let us buy more tools.  The "how-to" section could get out of control.
