    Favorite/Most Useful Links

    There are a few sites that I find very useful when surfing the web, and I was wondering what sites you find useful? Here's a couple [literally] to begin with:

    Dictionary.com - Look up definitions for any word
    Quotations at Bartleby.com - A searchable listing of 87,000 familiar and famous quotes

    So, what do you find useful?

    OK here's a couple [not literally] more.

    Project Gutenberg- digital texts, books, plays etc - all free.
    Slashdot- news for nerds
    Internet Movie Database- for all those obscure movie questions
    World Wildlife Fund
    World Society for Protection of Animals
    Nasa's astronomy picture of the day
    New Scientist
    What time is it?- world time db
    <A HREF="http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/" TARGET=_blank>Hubble telescope pics - these also make cool wallpaper
    </A>Electronic text center- more online texts

      I have been giving this some consideration and I will consider my reply a work in progress.

      Because I have cable Internet I enjoy watching video clips that I think are informative, so I have selected Court TV as my first choice.

        A couple of shopping related sites I like:

        Froogle - powered by Google, search product listings from online stores, sort by price
        GotApex? - find coupon codes for online shops
        DeepDiscountDVD - order DVDs for cheap, free 5-7 day shipping
        DeepDiscountCD - order CDs for cheap, free 5-7 day shipping

          This may be a good resource for someone who may need legal documents and not much help from an attorney. Today, I was listening to Jeff Levy on AM 640 in Los Angeles and he endorses LegalZoom and this was not a commercial plug nor is he affiliated with this site.

            IrfanView is free, fast, and will open just about any image file you're likely to come across. It also allows you to manipulate images, changing size or color depth, for example, you can set it up to play slide shows of your favorite pictures.
