Shame, any other search engines that proxy search?
I wonder if they are gone for good or just finding new hosting. Google was blocking them so lets see if they bounce back.

Scroogle, the search engine operated by privacy militant and self-appointed Wikipedia watchdog Daniel Brandt, has folded for real. After enduring DDOS attacks "around the clock" that sent a flood of unsustainable traffic to his servers, Mr. Brandt took down the search engine along with his other four domains, namebase.org, google-watch.org, cia-on-campus.org, and book-grab.com. His theory is that he was being attacked by hackers with a personal vendetta.
"These four domains had also been on the web for a long time â€” NameBase first went online in 1997, and before that had been available on telnet since 1995. I spent 27 years developing NameBase," he said in an email, and referred to the Wikipedia page.
"I no longer have any domains online," Mr. Brandt wrote. "I also took all my domains out of DNS because I want to signal to the criminal element that I have no more servers to trash. This hopefully will ward off further attacks on my previous providers."
.. So I guess it's gone for good - quick someone build a replacement - with ads
