rueger (210566) writes "Reading about the end of AltaVista, I was more interested in the number of comments suggesting that Google just isn't delivering the way it used to. My own experience suggests that it's increasingly less likely that a Google search will generate a page of results that's immediately useful. At least if "useful" excludes ask.com, bad computer "experts", and shopping sites. So, hard core search engine users: what's out there that matches the Google of five years ago, or which could be the next big thing?"

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:
