There are almost 1910 Google results from outer-court.com that look similar to this one:
blog.outer-court.com/search-css/ cache.php?url= top25web.com/blog/

I'm very curious what was the initial purpose for these redirects. Now the links don't work anymore.

This link from Google Cache might be the answer: 72.14.203.104/search?q=cache:z ...

Search.CSS was an early project launched from this blog to allow everyone to add their own custom stylesheet to a search engine I'd host (one based on the Google API). All you needed to do is reference your CSS on your own server. A while ago, I've integrated Search.CSS into FindForward and removed Search.CSS (I was annoyed by the results pollution in search engines which I just couldn't remove, even though I added meta tags, so I thought the best is to completely remove the folder from my server).

Here's the FindForward default style:
findforward.com/?q=google&

But let's add a custom CSS:
findforward.com/?q=google& ...

By the way you can also use FindForward as a site search for your own site. Joe Clark does it, take a look:
joeclark.org/
