Submission + - Altavista search engine loses its identity

FullBandwidth writes: The venerable search engine Altavista, for some years part of Yahoo but appearing as a separate site, seems to have been suddenly melded into Yahoo. Typing a query in the search box on returns results that look identical to the Yahoo search results, excepting the Altavista logo in place of the Yahoo logo. Trying any query from the "advanced" Altavista search ( simply forwards you to the main Yahoo search screen, without even copying over your query terms. For those of us who steadfastly refuse to go mainstream (i.e. Google), this is indeed a sad day.
