Dogpile's new name

There were search engines for years before Google, and even meta-searchers which collated the results of several engines. Dogpile, which became webfetch on this side of the pond, was one of these. Now Infospace, which owns both brands as well as seems to be embarking on a further programme of rationalisation.

For the serious searcher, there are tools which can not only refine search criteria but also link with your own personal data. Infospace provides these, as well as other providers such as Copernic. But webfetch has been free, which I trust zoo is also.

Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to
get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Here is my blog post additional info

This blog uses Blogger ( which makes it easy for people with no coding knowledge to put up their blogs. Other facilities are WordPress (, which I find a bit more restricting, and Spanglefish ( (Click Neath Guardian in my right-hand column to see an example of a Spanglefish-based facility).

A knowledge of html (Hypertext mark-up language) can make things more interesting. The html conference on Cix Forums is very helpful. It comprises a wide range of knowledge and experience.
