M - MGoBlog (Michigan sports blog)
N - Netflix
O - Outlook
P - Pitchfork
Q - N/A

It's a great service. The results sometimes aren't quite as good as Google, but I can generally get what I want and it doesn't save anything. If you're using Firefox, there's also an add-on you can get that automatically quarantines Google sites in a special container.
