Someone forgot to feed the hamster that powers their servers. Site has been dead for a while now.

When I got in this morning, I did what any narcissistic American would do -- I typed in my own name. Nope, insisted Cuil, I must have spelled my own name wrong.

Not a good start.

No wonder! Gerbils run faster, you should never use hamsters to power your server if it has a lot of traffic.

Hey Chris, remember that Culi.com just launched on the 28th of July. Meaning they still have some improvements that they need to make.

Personally, I like the way the website is laid out in a "magazine" type format with columns. It makes it so much easier to view. Although, I do wisht hey had a picture search too or anything else that that big search engines do have.

I would say just give this site some time to implement some new features and I'm sure we'll be lining up to search.

I am inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt on the results I got from trying the search engine today. They are trying to be innovated with how they present the information and how you can filter it down. It didn’t bowl me over, but I didn’t hate it either. That is what they are going to need to really hook people. They need to really wow them. I’ll take another look in a few months and see how they have come along.
