Thing 12: Rollyo

12. Roll your own search tool with Rollyo.

Okay, maybe I need more time with Rollyo. Because right now, it doesn't seem to be what I had in mind as a search tool. I plugged in some movie/tv/celebrity-related search engines, like the Internet Movie Database, the Movie Review Query Engine, the Dead People Server, and TV-Guide. The results I got were overwhelming...and kind of useless. It is possible to isolate the results from each service. I think I find it a lot easier, still, to bookmark these sites and search them individually. I'll keep trying, though.

The search tool I created is in the sidebar to your right.
