recommended sites & software

people usually put this stuff in an appendix rather than including it in a chapter, but screw those people; these sites are cool.

  • my personal site:

    • shameless plug. i may make the code examples and any error corrections related to this book available at my site.

  • the jargon file:

    • created by eric s. raymond. if you want to study up more on the hacker's way of life and state of mind, this is the site to go to.

  • megatokyo:

    • one of the best geek web-comics out there.

  • hobby tron:

    • kits for electronics, robotics, science, and more.

  • terraserver:

  • ip address locator:

    • get the location of an ip address.

some sites that i wish i had mentioned earlier (but was afraid to because of how rapidly the internet changes) can be found below. they may work; they may not. either way i felt these were worth mentioning.

    • normally when you copy & paste things, you're only allowed to copy one item at a time (a limitation of the windows clipboard). clipboard magic allows you to keep a history of copied items for easy retrieval, essentially allowing you to copy multiple things and then go back and paste an item from your history.
