Here are various links to other people's sites that I have
found interesting or useful. The links should all be up to
date but you know how the web is. It's a mess.
- Yahoo - Oh sure, everyone complains
about Yahoo, with its slow load time, ads and an overabundance of things not
actually related to searching, but we all keep going there. Of late, some
features of google that have broken are now working in yahoo.
- Alta Vista - I used to
use this site a lot. Now it no longer exists.
- Alta Vista
Translater (Bilden Sie Ihr web page auf vollig deutsch). The errors in
translation are often entertaining.
- Google - This site started off with
clean design but it seems like every month another button or picture is added.
Tsk tsk. They added two useful features a few years back: picture search and
show cached version of the page. Recently, these two features broke. More
interestingly, these two features have been added to yahoo, and there they
- startpage.com - It claims
to be more private than google.
duck go - It claims to be more private than google. Search results tend
to bug, looks like the javoids need to be on. Uh huh: someone is trying
to play with the big boys and is failing.
- 100 alternative search engines
- Real Synthetic Audio
- The Ultimate Band List Despite the huge
animated banner ads
and a convoluted navigation scheme, this
site can lead to actual information on the band that you are looking for,
provided the band is popular and was formed after 1990 or before 1980.
- Cyber Age internet radio with shows
archived on the server. Good industrial/goth/techno/power-noise music. The

longer. Go listen to the good music and the antics of Tommy T and Robot Tom

- mp3chief - a source of acapellas
- www.forumplanet.com morrowind - USED to be good forums. Those swine
put in a login procedure that requires far too much personal information.

not make an account with them because I already had one. Stoopid!

back to a plugin site.

You know how in linux you often can't get the driver for a wifi card or some
such? Wouldn't it be nice if you could just have some way of using the actual
windows .DLL file in linux, without emulation? Well, this claims to do that.
I've not tested it but thought it worth a mention here anyway.
