Good dog!

So, DLA's it's out with Google, we're going Dogpile.

Why? Because Dogpile includes Google in it's searches plus Yahoo, Ask Jeeves and msn (well, what can you do?). The good thing with Google was that the results page could be customised to look more like this blog, but, in fairness, it wasn't that much like it anyway, because the font colours wouldn't match. The background was black certainly, which helped, because i find it easier to read light text on a dark background than vice versa, however the text stubbornly refused the subtler tones Douglas Bowman has designed into this template, rather going for the nearest garish version. So fuck 'em.

What's next? Well, i've been looking at RSS feeds, to get some updating news/comment on here, but so far they all seem to take up a huge amount of space on the page. What i'm aiming at will be a fixed frame with its own navbars, just under the Dogpile search field, but you'll have to wait for my understanding of javascript to reach that level of complexity. My HTML's coming along nicely though, eh?

I've also added this, the Dogpile 'Compare Search Engines Tool', below the Links field, but this may end up on a one way trip to the vet's, because when i tried to use it, it didn't seem to work properly. This may be because i'm using Mozilla, rather than MS Internet Explorer (boo, hiss!) now, but we shall see. Should it go the the Great Kennel-in-the-Sky, you can still find it in this post.
