Well, it's time for a bookmark dump. Things I've bookmarked recently but not mentioned here:
  • A pertinent chronological history of Afghanistan
  • An explanation of how port forwarding works in Windows 2000 (useful if you're sharing Internet connections and one of you wants to run a server)
  • The interesting fact that keyboard shortcuts are not quicker than using the mouse. They seem to, but never really do -- the explanation is interesting.
  • SmartGroups is a free mailing list provider with an enormous number of features; quite cool.
  • The World Flag Database came in handy when making a presentation the other day
  • Rocksteady is a plugin for Winamp that keeps the volume level constant across multiple MP3s (which tend to vary widely in volume)
  • Go on, Quiz your friends
  • Or, alternately, gross them out. And I mean, really gross. Don't click that link, you have been warned.
  • You can also enjoy the random but interesting delights of exploding dog. No, I don't know why it's called that either. Detonating canines are not involved in any way.
  • The online comic Queer Nation, taking the piss out of superhero comics and gay stereotypes at the same time! Wow. I especially like the Uncle Tom, the All-American Gay Black Republican :-)
  • Also the Queer League has an interesting look at gay characters in mainstream comic books over the past two decades. More than you think.
  • I've been using a very nice Java IDE called JCreator Pro. Quick but full-featured.
  • Multimap gives street-level directions between places in the UK. Way useful.
  • Animal symbolism tells you, duh, what animals symbolise. No quiz-yourself section, sadly.
  • Elfwood has enormous galleries of amateur drawings, on every theme in fantasy and science fiction. Very cool.
