    Give StumbleUpon: Personalized Recommendations to Help You Discover the Best of the Web a try.

    The bad:
    You have to register.
    You have to install the toolbar

    The good:
    Not adware, toolbars are easily disabled
    After filling out a questionnaire you hit a button said toolbar and it'll direct to you to a random site relevant to your interest.

    This utility has been the single biggest timewaster I've yet to stumble across on the net.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    Hulu Free archived major television shows. Nice format, good quality, pretty recent updates.

    TED - Great video site where a bunch of smart speakers make little short presentations (20 mins). There's a bunch of stuff in there if you ever get curious, it's a great site to get you thinking a little bit and serves sort of as a precursor to following or studying something more in depth. Kill some time, brain storm, see what leading professionals are doing.

    Gotta thank PT for showing me that site. I love it!

    a friend of mine has webspace and has downloads like "4 Desktops" to help prevent clutter and a few other useful programs including a self-contained version of Partition Magic.

    So if you're a tech nerd and want a few more tools to play with, check out Keegami

    Because you can't spell "Slaughter" without "Laughter"

    World Wide Words- really cool website where this guy talks about the origin and meaning of words/expressions and stuff

    I read yesterday one entry that I found particularly amusing: about the Cupertino effect*. It's the phenomena where the spellcheck's first suggestion to fix a "mispelled" word is completely illogical/erroneous. I've definitely ("defiantly"!) been plagued with this before so I was tickled to learn the problem has such a funny name.

    *If you're too lazy to read it, basically it says that early spellcheckers (Microsoft Word '97?) set to British standardized spelling wanted to change the mispelled "cooperation" to "Cupertino" (the California city) rather than "co-operation".
