Brainboost Search Engine

New to me, the Brainboost search engine is pretty interesting. Ask it a question and the answer may be displayed right in the search results. Our brief testing indicates that Brainboost still needs to work on the algorithm, but it's promising. For some questions, I'd far rather get the answer right away than have to plow through pages and pages looking for the bit of information I'm seeking. From Brainboost:

Brainboost is a revolutionary new search engine. Brainboost uses Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing techniques to go the extra mile, by actually answering questions, in plain English.

Nice one, Brainboost.

    This brainboost sounds great!!… Only problem is that it doesn't let me access it; it throws up the following message:

    Proxy Error
    The proxy server received an invalid response
    from an upstream server.
    The proxy server could not handle the request GET /bb/.

    Reason: Error reading from remote server

    Whenever I try go into it….
    Any ideas of how to overcome this? Is it my internet explorer 7 Browser or is it just offline or something?

    Interesting. It's directing to http://www.answers.com/bb/ … and that's where the proxy error is given.

    Oh well … there are plenty of other search engines.

    Actually, I wouldn't know. Have you tried asking them?
