Surely the pictures were just illustrating stimulated emission.
Cuil - still pronounced "Cool" - has apologized for its quantum porn, blaming the incident on "a serious corruption of [its] files." After serving up random mid-masturbation graphics (NSFW) in response to searches for a Grenoble-based quantum computing researcher, the strawberry-and-muffin-fueled search engine now sees the …

Charming. This strange thread is truth-fully beautiful. After all, both tops and bottoms like to get a bit of the old up-and down.
Then get exotic: add some gluons for ornamentation, a bit of string to restrict allowable states, a bit of color to charge things, a bit of a spin to explore the hidden dimensions of particle exchange. If quarking like a duck is your bag, go for it - whatever your fevered brane can come up with.
Mine's the 6-dimensional Calabi–Yau manifold.
I like Anonymous Irish Coward's take on Cuil but not being Irish myself I keep reading Cuil as Cooly. Ya, I know it dose not match the spelling but the word is so unfamiliar that at a casual glance I don't quite know what to do with the 'i'.
I'd be curious to know how others are pronouncing this word to themselves as they read it.
The file corruption was caused by a race condition. Only manifests itself under heavy usage. Something that's probably taught in Servers 101. But these guys got all their back-end PHP coding done by a spotty summer temp who isn't paid enough to care and wouldn't understand anyway.
Am I getting close?
Oh for pity's sake you perverts.

When you're that far behind the company you're claiming you can whip, I'd kinda shut up.
If you're a VC investing in Cuil, please get in touch with Register readers. I'm sure we've got some ideas that might almost work. If you've invested in this h@lf-@rsed sh!t you're going to love us.
Ya know I saq the article the first time and laughed, then it hit me....both those guys are hung more then me and I then felt sad.
A rapist, a pedophile and a Priest walk into a bar......and thats just the first guy.
Ok not a pun but im sure it would bring up some interesting "hits" if you searched for something Cuil :)
/im going to hell for this post though im sure there will be a picture on Cuil of me as well
That excuse from Cuil themselves is drawing it's pension these days.
If I had a quid for every time I'd heard some spotty oik in a call centre attempt to prove that their company wasn't a sack of shit with the excuse: "It's not our fault, it's a computer error", I'd be typing this on a beach in the Seychelles.
Gay porn may have been reduced somewhat, but my band's page still shows up with the Looney Tunes Christmas album cover. I'm just waiting for Warner Bros to sue...
And I agree with the Irish AC's assessment of the name as totally appropriate. But only because I also suffer from the same issue of Dave, where I always read and pronounce it as 'arse' in French. Seems far more appropriate still.
As an Irish Speaker it's annoying me no end that Cuil are directly lying about the translation for... Cuil. I ran an intranet at work called Eolas which means Knowledge. Fios would be the correct term in the context of the story behing it. Cuil on the other hand means rear, and can be used with a number of works to mean other things. But a rough translation of an irish phrase "Pog mó Cuil" would be to kiss my rear. You would think that they would have consulted the first Irish dictionary for something as important as their name.....I fear something amiss, perhaps their investors are looking at a Cuil and not recognising it for what it is....
Reminds me of the Far Side when the Lone Ranger looks up the meaning of Kemosabe and realises it means horses rear end.
Searching for "criminal defense attorney los angeles" returns 28 results ... none of them attorneys. I'm sure you can imagine how many defense attorneys are in Los Angeles ... and 28 ain't it. Removing "criminal defense" leaves us with over 112,000,000 results. So, according to Cuil: over 112 million attorneys in LA, and not one of them criminal defense.
This may be the longest public beta ever. Look for a working engine by 2020. I agree with the posters who claim that this early hype will kill this absolutely immature company. They'd better be socking some of that $33M away for when they fail to get additional funding...
