Links I Like . . . .

Let your do the walking.
Pages of links on a specific topic:
- The Music Page! - another page
devoted to links about music I like. That includes a lot
of "alternative," indy, techno, digital music and other stuff, but
definitely NOT country. (Not that people who listen to country
regularly can even read, let alone use a computer.)
- Somewhat less exciting, the Physics
Page. This is mostly a list of graduate schools I'm considering,
with some other places to find stuff not on my list. I made this page
mostly more my own edification, then decided to put it up for general
use anyway. Enjoy.
Other random links:
- 4/4/96 Two new pages of online comics for your
- In a predictable backlash against the environmental movement,
someone created the newsgroup alt.pave.the.earth. The Pavers now
have a Web presence, were they have published their Creed, their FAQ, and
- Info-Mac Search
is a wonderful site for Macintosh users. Info-Mac is a gigantic
archive of shareware and freeware for the Macintosh. The page lets
you do a keyword search of the entire archive, so if you want to know
if they have the lastest version of ZTerm, or what HTML editors are
avaible, you just search for "Zterm" or "HTML" and you're in
- Check out United Media.
These people publish Dilbert, and
several other comic
strips daily on the Web.
- United Media no longer
publishes Dr. Fun. It
has now moved to Sunsite.
- Have you ever tried to find someone's email address? I have, and
here are a few of the ways to do it.
- Lookup! This is a good place
for addresses in the United States, and it's very easy to use.
Information Service. More comprehensive than Lookup, but a little more difficult to use.
It generates a lot of extra stuff you probably don't need.
- Netfind. This is not a web service, and is very difficult
to use successfully. Once you get the hang of it, it can be the most
useful, however. Mostly I use it to get a domain name, then right to
email@example.com and ask for the address of the person I'm
looking for. There are a lot of Netfind servers in the world. Telnet
to one of the servers below, and log in as netfind.

Services, S. Plainfield, NJ, USA)

- The Dune
homepage. Devoted to the amazing series of SF books by Frank
- The After
Life of Bob comic strip archive. ALoB is a comic strip drawn by a
student at Univeristy of Alberta in Canada for the school newspaper.
Despite that, it's really funny. Really.
- Power Computing, the company
that makes Macintosh clones for general use, has a page to allow you
to build your own
box. That is, you tell them what processor you want, how much
RAM, how big a hard drive, etc., and the page tells you how much it
will cost. Find out how many years it would take to earn enough to
buy the computer you really want.
- Book Stacks an online
bookstore physically located in Cleveland. You can search by title,
author, subject, or keyword, and order your books right online. They
also operate by telnet to books.com, or by modem.
- And, last but not least, old links from
this page. This is stuff that was on my links page that I got
tired of. If you haven't seen it, it may still be interesting.
