Main Page // Links 
  It is my goal to keep track here of sites I visit often or find useful for particular purposes.

 
 
Required Daily Reading 
  Stuff I read frequently, often daily or several times a day.

Slashdot
Rarely timely, tech-oriented news regurgitation & discussion site. However, some user comments are interesting and worth reading, and it's a great way to kill lots of time.

News.com
Articles supported by obvious 'insights' of various analysts, occasionally interesting and original. Another for the time filler category.

Salon.com
Interesting features can be frequently found in the Life, Politics, Sex, and Tech sections.

User Friendly
A daily comic strip for techies.
 
 
Required Weekly Reading 
  Stuff I read fairly frequently, more or less once a week.

SatireWire
Excellently done satire on current events.

Segfault
Geek humour site. Not usually very funny, but some classics can be found here every so often.

Feed Magazine
Another site with stuff to read.

Morons.org
There are a lot of morons out there. Beware.

edA-qa's CD Collection
Check out Neil's latest additions to the European Collection (I'm currently hosting the Canadian Collection).

Fucked Company
Go laugh at some dot coms.

XXX Passwords
A weekly dose of free porn.
 
 
Required Monthly Reading 
  Stuff I get around to when I remember and have the time.

Gamasutra
Various professional tips and tricks for game programming. Yeah, I like reading about things I'll never get to do (not for money anyways).

Guides and reviews of new computer gadgets.

Sharky Extreme
I use this mostly to check out memory and CPU prices and the occasional game review.

Ars Technica
Very well researched and written technology reviews.

2600 Magazine
The Hacker Quarterly. Essential reading for any aspiring h4x0r.
 
 
Essential Media Links 
  Sites you should know about if you're into MP3s. Also assorted movie linkage.

CDDB
Web interface to the CD database used by many CD players.

CDNow
Less chaotic than CDDB and more suited for quick track list lookups.

MP3.com
Lots of amateur 'music', but real gems to be found if you look enough.

WinMX / eDonkey2000
Forget Napster.

WinAmp
My music player of choice.

Quintessential Player
My CD player of choice.

RazorLame
A LAME front-end, used for encoding MP3 files.

MPTagger
An MP3 ID tag creator that suits my purposes perfectly.

IMDB
International Movie Database. If it's not here, they didn't make it.

Coldspring
Order some CDs from these guys.

Relapse
And these guys too.

Game Copy World
Helps your games kick the nasty habit of verifying source media when played. It's just annoying and unnecessary.
