Just about all the search engines are offlined as of me checking today, the ones that are not are next to useless. Did some kind of ultimatum come down regarding December 1?
I used to use filehost.org a lot and it seemed to always return good search hits on most of the filehosts out there. I never had need for anything else until now, so maybe these sites died gradually.
As of today, filehost only returns movies and TV, zero knowledge content like books, etc.
You'll find a listing of the search sites I went through that are similar to filehost here under the "rapidshare search engine' section:http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/100-alternative-search-engines-you-should-know/
(Don't go to filecrop)
Anyone have a favorite filehosting search site that is still up and actually returns useful searches for the kind of content the folks here enjoy? I went through just about all of the ones listed on the hongkiat blog, none seem useful, a good number are dead/parked.
This will make, and is making, me grumpier than usual if I can't replace my favorite search tool.
