This is the meager collection of cool web sites and pages that
I've found so far that I deem worthy of including on my home page...
I'll try to keep it up to date, but don't count on it... ;-)
Links to Other Cool Web Places
Maia Hansen. Amazingly wonderful geek-girl babe, and quite
possibly the single coolest person alive... ;-) (No longer with
a proper homepage, so her Twitter will have to do...)
Douglas Adams. Quite possibly the single coolest person
no longer alive... ;-(
W. Richard Stevens. Unix network programming guru...
Sadly, also no longer alive... ;-(
Cheyenne Greatorex. Roommate, and co-proprietor of
(See the new, non-broken, less sucky main page! ;-) And,
amuse yourself by perusing our ever-growing
library of DVDs... ;-))
Quake (and Other FPS Gaming) Sites
id Software. The (former) gods of FPS games... With Carmack
gone and them bought out now, they're a pale imitation of their
former selves, sadly...
Blue's News. Always first with the latest news... Still the
best gaming website there is!
ShackNews. No longer run by sCary, and not nearly as
much wacky humor as it used to have, but it's sometimes ok...
- LinuxGames. RIP. This great site has been retired...
Gaming On Linux. A great site for Linux gaming, and a
more than worthy replacement for LinuxGames...
Steam. The digital games platform, now with Linux support!
- GOG. DRM-free gaming, also
now with Linux support!
Wacky News/Links Sites
Fark. The best site there is for wacky links...
Consider signing up for
TotalFark for even more links (than you can possibly handle)!
Everlasting Blort. Some of the strangest links around...
MetaFilter. Another great source of weird and interesting
Misc. Geeky Sites
SlashDot. "News for Nerds", as they say...
Linux Weekly News. An excellent source of Linux news...
The Register. Great tech news site, with tons of scathing
Wired News. More tech news...
User Friendly. A great online comic strip for geeks...
I don't think any new comics are being made though, and those
posted daily now are just recycled old ones...
- XKCD. Another great geek
web-comic that is updated every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday...
The Jargon File. AKA: The New Hacker's Dictionary...
The definitive source of info on hacker jargon...
TextFiles. A wonderful collection of old text files, on
a wide variety of subjects, from old BBS's...
Internet FAQ Consortium. All the RFCs, and several FAQs
on a wide variety of topics...
The Linux Documentation Project. A massive compilation of
various Linux-related HOWTOs, FAQs, guides, and other docs...
ThinkGeek. A great store for all things geeky...
Jinx. More great geek-wear for sale...
Electronic Frontier Foundation. Defending your rights online...
If you're not already a member, you should be ashamed of yourself!
Unix Sockets FAQ Forum. The newest incarnation of the
great Unix Sockets FAQ... A great place to go for questions
on network programming... (And, I don't just say that because
I'm an admin there!)
FreeCode. Formerly FreshMeat. Links to almost every piece of
software there is! ;-) (Sadly, no longer updated...)
International Obfuscated C Code Contest. Examples in
how NOT to code... ;-)
Wotsit's Format. A great collection of information about
the format of various types of files, as well as other useful
RISKS-LIST. A moderated digest of discussions about the
risks of computing...
LinuxSecurity. Linux-specific security news and info...
SecurityFocus. A general security news site, and hoster
of several great mailing lists, including the famous BugTraq...
Packet Storm. A very comprehensive security site, with
links to countless papers, documents, and programs related
to securing your system and/or breaking its security...
2600. A good (paper) magazine with an undeservedly poor
reputation... Subscribe, and give them your support!
Phrack. The best online security magazine there is...
