    I'm so dumb....

    given that Google is down, I wanted to find another search engine to use temporarily, so I tried typing in "search engine" into google

    Anyway, so can anyone tell me a suitable alternative to Google while it's down??

    Oh and incidentally, the problems are being caused by enormous numbers of requests being generated by the MyDoom virus.

    Read this if you're interested.

    I had problems with it last night, and I've got the same message as you if I try to use it. So yes, I'd assume it's down.

    www.yahoo.co.uk
    www.yahoo.com
    both provide, in my view, a comprehensible service comparable to google

    From that article, it would appear that the problems are caused by too much traffic. If you're having problems with it, you could try waiting a few minutes and then try again. It was just on the news saying it was down as well, but seems to only be the UK version. Perhaps try the US one?

    If that doesn't work, I used to use www.altavista.com before google was around, no idea how good it is now, though.
