*Links with this color are NEWSGROUPS

Links in Bold are favorites of mine.

Daily Links- Links with new content that I hit up every day (repeated below).

Digg- Almost all the links on here haven't been updated in years, except this one.

Friends

ScreenScientific.com- Chris Lindekens' website. This site is always evolving, with each design better than the last! *UPDATE*- Used to be Level2000.net

ChristopherRossetti.com- Chris Rossetti's site featuring his artwork and other stuff. This is the site that Chris runs and constantly updates himself.

CRossetti.org- Used to be ChrisRossetti.com. Older site designed by 'Skins.

Justin's Rap Sheet- a site dedicated to Justin (Actually the site keeps track of what games developers have worked on).

Self Perpetual Looking Glass- Site run at MSN Communities by Cody's friend Brennan. Tons of pics and fun stuff (I really like the PCH flasher and the party pics). So if you're looking for all the latest on Cody's extra hep friends, check it out.

SkimOnline- The largest skimboarding site around, and it's run by Aaron Peluso! Damn if this site doesn't look professional.

Apex Studios- Brigitte's portfolio site.

Abstraction.org- Dan Cota's experiment in over simplification.

splatlabs.com-Jeff Quaintance's site. For a real mind blower (especially if you knew Jeff in high school), check out the pics of his wife and two daughters!

Dana Hills High School- Actually a cool idea for finding lost friends. Be sure to check out the Alumni section (CLASS OF '93!!! Whoooo... uhhh... that felt pathetic).

Fun Sites

The Stile Project- I thought I'd seen intense and hardcore until I witnessed this site. One man's daily rant on society. A must for any sicko.

The Onion America's Finest News Source- I love the Onion. I've always loved fake journalism stuff (UCSD's Koala is a great example). Maybe because of all the years I spent being tormented in student journalism.

Phil Hendrie - Official Website- GOD! *UPDATE*- Used to listen to this site everyday until those bastards at Premiere started charging for streaming audio. Thanks assholes! Or if you're Josh, you can no longer listen to Art Bell for free.

sputnik7- Check out all of the cool anime and music videos. A lot of this stuff you would usually have to buy, but with this site and a broadband connection, you can just sit back and watch fullscreen. AWESOME! (I recommend a healthy dose of Junk Boy for starters.)

The Internet Archive- Wayback Machine- This is one of the coolest things on the net. After losing hope for awhile after all of the dot-bombs, it's nice to finally see something new and fun.

sodaplay- Hours of yummy fun constructing wireframe creatures. One of the most original and fun sites out there.

Netives.com- Check out the Marbles game. I play that just about as much as Bejeweled on the Zone.

laughingshop.com- Just a bunch of files. Used to be "The Stash." Be sure to click on the "Videos" link, that's where you'll find all of the good stuff! *UPDATE*- Used to be "The Stash." It also used to have a lot more cool stuff.

How Stuff Works- The name says it all.

Video Games

GameSpot- My Daily Radar replacement.

The Gaming Intelligence Agency- Nerdcore gaming news.

ign.com- Pretty much what Daily Radar used to be, but with a bunch of members only crap.

Quake

PlanetQuake- All things Quake. BRING IT!

TheForce.net- The spot for Star Wars gossip.
