I was wondering how come yahoo didn't make use of their delicious acquisition and allow users to use the links form a delicious feed to set the limit on a search (for an example of how this could work see deliSearch - http://blogs.open.ac.uk/Maths/ajh59/deliSearch.html - which lets users identify a delicious feed and then use the sites linked to to limit a search by page or domain - a bit like a feed powered Rollyo. there's also a more genral version - searchfeedr (http://blogs.open.ac.uk/Maths/ajh59/007309.html) which sets limits form any provided feed. tony
