Holy crap… this might come as a shock to some of you, but I have no life. It’s true, don’t try to tell me otherwise.
I just spent the last hour (and really, its not like I had anything better to do) writing a PHP script [John-oogle] that uses the Google Search API to tap into Google’s search database to pretty much just replicate google’s search page.
Over time I will make it look nicer, and provide the ability to see more than 10 results (I’ll have to do a paging system like google has). But for now, I’m pretty happy with it. This was a good learning experience to get familiar with using/accessing web services with PHP. Thank you nusoap!
