10 Interesting Web Sites I'd Like to Share
Huh. I'm not sure I've got much here for people, but here goes. Sorry if you've seen all these before.

  1. NaNoWriMo
    National Novel Writing Month. I've participated three times and may or may not participate this year. Either way, when I get my first novel published there will be an acknowledgement of NaNoWriMo for kick-starting my writing again.
  2. Recent Earthquakes
    This is the USGS' real time earthquakes map. I have used the Bay Area map to get earthquake details within minutes of feeling an earthquake at home. Pretty remarkable.
  3. Cal Insider Football Board
    This wouldn't be a "favorites" list of mine if it didn't include something about Cal sports. This board is a typical BBS in that it's got a few lucid posters with a whole bunch of airheads. But it's Cal football.
  4. CSR Wire
    Get daily news about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) from around the world.
  5. Netcraft web server survey
    Some interesting stats about the Web.
  6. Project Gutenberg
    This site contains a remarkable wealth of the full text of classic (and not so classic) literature.
  7. Just plain fun.
  8. Old-time arcade games
    My kids love this, and it's a nice trip down memory lane.
  9. bartleby.com
    Whenever I need a quotation, I go here. Very useful!
  10. Best. Comic strip. Ever.
    Bill, you are an unparalleled genius.

That's a fun list. Welcome back from vacation. This topic will only aid my procrastination.

100% agree with you about Bill. Ever. Ever. Love checking out the quake site after one. Love the Jackson Pollock one. I'm toying with NaNoWriMo. Kudos to you for three times. Wow!

It is the best comic ever. We had my first son dress up as Hobbes for his first Halloween.. and now we wonder if he truly became a Calvin. LOL
