I've been interested in this one, of late:


This is a search engine that uses perl (and postgresql):


For some time now I've had the feeling that google's web search
has stagnated if not slipped, and it's good to see there's an
upwelling of interest in taking them on at (what used to be) their
main game.

Also, if I'm right that google has been ignoring some good
technologies (perl, postgresql), then it might be possible to
get a little edge over them by using them...

Nice to see someone's trying.
