Here is the HTML code for adding a Twingine search box to your site:
I have discussed further with Yahoo! and Google. And decided upon a solution. As you probably already have noticed, YaGoohoo!gle will disappear into the void (as you see it) on June 1st. From now on, when you submit queries from YaGoohoo!gle's main page, your query is submitted to Twingine, YaGoohoo!gle's successor with identical functionality. Twingine's front page is a bit boring. That's because I suck at logo design. You are all welcome to submit your suggestion for a logo to me on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attach your licensing terms for use of the submission. What? You liked the old name, and think the new one sucks? Relax – there is an alternative! I've also registered jaguhugel.com for you to use. Update your bookmarks, and enjoy your twin view of the world!

It was bound to happen, I guess. Both Yahoo! and Google have issued notices of trademark infringements. Instead of contacting me directly, they sent intimidating e-mails to my DNS provider. I have tried to argue with them, but have not had any success with that (yet). So what do you think I should do?
- Try to reach an agreement. Do you have any suggestions on how to convince them?
- Stand on the barricades, claiming there is not sufficient likelihood of confusion or risk of trademark dilution. Do you know any lawyers with experience in U.S. trademark law willing to assist me?
- Drop it and start using jaguhugel.com instead Perhaps you have a different suggestion for a domain name?
