Unread postby PriamNevhausten » Mon Feb 04, 2008 12:41 am

So, I keep a certain number of things in my Bookmarks set. Some things are useful, some things are entertaining, and some things are just there. But, I've been holding on to many of them for a significant amount of time, and what the shit, they may be useful or entertaining to some of the rest of you. So this is what I got. Yay for useful content!

http://drmcninja.com/ Dr. McNinja, a webcomic. This one may be on its way out of my bookmarks list, and I'm not entirely sure why it's not on my Links toolbar like all the other webcomics I visit.

http://www.gaijinsmash.net/ Gaijin Smash, a blog of a former-Japanese-English-Teacher turned English-product-translator-in-Japan. Humorous writing style, good read. Somewhat less frequently updated since December, when he got engaged.

http://www18.big.or.jp/~hikoza/Prod/index_e.html Hikoza'n Chi-X games. You remember the Warning Forever thing? This is the guy that did it, and he's got some really interesting concept designs for shooters. The English page very, very rarely gets updated, so check the other links to get back to the Japanese game list.

{Planets} - Here I have a subdirectory containing a listing of four planets in the Star Wars canon, which I had originally planned to use for an RP elsewhere. They are all pages on http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/ which is the Star Wars wiki.

{Here there exist a couple of things for bills, so I do not have to remember their URLs every month}

http://gh.ffshrine.org/soundtracks.php Galbadia Hotel, which we all should know and love by now. Bookmarked just in case I forget the name of the place, somehow.

http://terminal71.com/flash/mario.php The People's Mario (flash). This guy does some neat flash stuff.

http://teddybarelyhuman.ytmnd.com/ and http://germ.ytmnd.com/ What can I say? Some YTMNDs have good music.

http://www.journalism.co.uk/features/story1953.shtml I can't tell you how many times I've seen some truly shittily done "How to make your own resume not suck" pieces that really don't help. This is the only one I've found that seems to be geared towards the practical rather than the theoretical and waffling.

http://top-secret-recipes.blogspot.com/ Do you know how to cook? I don't. But this is good stuff. I think it was probably in the Random Shits thread, maybe.

http://ocw.mit.edu/index.html Someday, I am going to go through their Japanese coursework. Someday.

http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp Don't forget to completely uninstall your old versions of Java before you install a new one.

http://www.dgemu.com/gba-list------M.html Got ROMs?

http://www.cyberfanatix.com/page.php?id ... ccf601acb6 I don't really like Samurai Spirits Tenkaichi Kenkakuden, but on the rare occasions when I do play it I'd like to know what the hell I'm doing.

http://www.romnation.net/srv/roms.html Got more ROMs?

http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/242 ... n%3Ascraps Come on. How can I not have this.

http://drewseph.zophar.net/ Metroid Redesign! It is neat.

http://www.hcn.zaq.ne.jp/cabic508/rsf/ More flash stuff!

http://www.romguy.com/roms/commodore64/Hacker.html Good C64 disk image download sites are hard to come by.

http://www.c64.com/ Fortunately, I found two.

http://ssftribute.emuunlim.com/faq.php I don't yet have a computer capable of running a Saturn emulator. Until that day, I hold this link, and I wait.

http://z11.invisionfree.com/Hearts_of_M ... hp?act=idx An organizational frontend for disenfranchised roleplayers at the aforementioned Star Wars site. Not frequently used.

http://www.ragnarokbattle.com/forum/ind ... topic=1069 DID YOU KNOW that we still play RBO every now and again over at the Glorious Condo? It's true!

http://www.safehavennet.org/ Smart people having rational, civil discussions? Count me in!

http://www.gametrailers.com/player/26535.html Really, this teaser is pretty sweet in and of its own right independent of that which it advertises.

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pumpkin-Fu ... etail.aspx Pumpkin fudge. PUMPKIN FUDGE. Pumpkin. Fudge.

http://slacktivist.typepad.com/slacktiv ... index.html You know what's better than reading a pile-of-shit popular book? Having someone else do it for you, and relate what's wrong with it in a step-by-step fashion!

http://www.melaleuca.com/ps/index.cfm?f ... 1&sCatId=1 I was recommended this lotion for my seasonal winter itchy skin problems. It ain't as great as I had been led to believe, but it is not bad either. Meh. Bookmarked just in case something wondrous happens to come out of the bottle that Apple has.

http://www.oxmonline.com/article/featur ... page=0%2C1 So, our Rock Band drum set is starting to break. I am debating whether to try to fix it myself or just send it in for replacement. I may wait until we get a second guitar before I take action either way.

Image I love this thread!

http://www.hlcomic.com/archive/ - The best use of Gary's Mod you'll ever see.

http://pbfcomics.com/ - Rarely updated, mostly awesome.

http://alswebpage.netfirms.com/jaksbit/ ... akemix.rar - Delicious and moist.

http://www.spellcheck.net/ - I rely on this way more than I should.


Sadly my stockpile of bookmarks isn't as awesome as Priam's. :[

I have several bookmarks to list here, as I am awesome.

... don't cry jennifer ...
Comprehensive Clock Tower fan site; holds a good amount of media for CT fans. I know Ajil would probably be gar for it.

Absürd Örg
Much like Conclave Obscurum below, this is a... unique site.

Chris' Survival Horror Quest
Good source of information for those who are fond of survival horror games. Chris, the webmaster, is also involved in the game industry and more often than not has some very interesting opinions to read on such. Re: the forums.

Clone Manga
hurrr

Conclave Obscurum
I'm still not entirely certain what it is, but it's still awesome.

Count Your Sheep
Webcomics in general blow, but this one still amuses me. It's way too cute for its own good.

F@NB0Y$
A webcomic with likable characters and a sense of humor... and video games? :X Unpossible lol

Fully Ramblomatic
Yahtzee... you know, with the awesome Chzo Mythos games, and the hilarious Escapist reviews, and such. Yeah.

The Green Hill Zone
Best Sonic site on the Internet - no fan fiction, godawful fan art, or coverage of news that's not really news. Well-documented pages on everything up to Heroes - there are plans to cover the later stuff (Shadow and on) but there's no real hurry. Big surprise, right?

The forums are also a great place; though there are a few idiots, you can more often than not count on thought out discussion about a wide variety of topics. Plus, I've gotten free stuff from there before. Pretty awesome.

TheHOUSE
Creepy flash game. Yeah, I had to put one in here.

NobodyHere
Hermit crab keeps hiding.

SAME HAT! SAME HAT!
Awesome blog that focuses on some of the more bizarre and/or hilarious Japanese comics out there (though certain notable others are also featured). Most definitely NSFW, though, due to some very bizarre content.

Ted's Caving Page
Read it all the way through.

su//bad
what

That's quite a bit of good stuff right there. There are other links (NTSC-UK, Snowblood Apple... Google them) I can wholeheartedly recommend looking at. Some I simply can't link to at all for obvious reasons. Maybe I'll post more later. Eh.

Update:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3tKUUpIua8

Anyone who has Guilty Gear Accent Core (which has been released stateside!) and plans to ever be serious with Order Sol should look this up, as well as perhaps the first of this three part-series (the link goes to part 2).

updated update: I am a motherfucking genius. Thanks to this thread, I can recover the great majority of what I lost from a recent hard disk failure! Huzzah!

You know what's good to do? Revisit this thread and do another dump. Maybe that means I'm sensing an imminent failure of this computer as well? In any case, whether for posterity or safety, have some more links!

http://www.discogs.com/artist/Coldcut Coldcut is a musical outfit that's equal parts jazz, poetry, and scratch. In the event that I ever actually have money again, I intend to seek out their other albums, as I currently only have Let Us Play.

http://gretachristina.typepad.com/greta ... nd-an.html Greta Christina has some fairly well written pieces on sexuality and atheism--two of my favorite topics of discussion.

http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=793 Idran sent me this link to Language Log a million years ago, and I still can't really bring myself to go there and do some serious reading, mostly for lack of finding a good entry point. Nonetheless, I keep this link around on the off chance that I get deep into the subject by some other means and have the momentum needed to actually put in some reading.

http://www.expertvillage.com/expert/81.htm?index=6 Who bought a bass guitar? I did! Who doesn't know how to use it? Also me! Who made some good tutorials on the basics? This guy did.

http://www.informit.com/content/images/ ... s_ch02.pdf How to make sure your programs don't run in Win95.

http://www.voip-news.com/feature/50-plu ... ks-030308/ Reasonably sure I got this from the Random Shits thread, how to get a real person on the phone when calling a business.

http://www.ebonmusings.org/atheism/gues ... on101.html My favorite atheism piece I've read to date, formatted as a "Religion 101 final exam."

http://www.damaliayo.com/pdfs/I%20CAN%2 ... racism.pdf Thank Kai for this one, something that white males, like myself, would do well to periodically freshen in mind.

http://blog.shrub.com/archives/tekanji/2006-03-08_146 Same story as above.

http://math.arizona.edu/~kerl/doc/square-root.html How to manually find a square root! I never knew how people did it before electronic calculators, until I found this on pure coincidence.

http://scienceblogs.com/geneticfuture/2 ... troduc.php Sometimes I read books. No, really. This is a good one, from what I gather from this review, to add to my shelf when I get a chance.

http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F7452900.pdf Instruction manual for a Hoover steam cleaner we got a couple years ago when we got a new dishwasher. I know this link probably won't be very useful to you, but who cares about you, right?

http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2009 ... ialism.php A rather obvious argument, but nonetheless fun to read--remember the big stink about "OMFG socialism" in the political clime around Election '08 time? Yeah.

http://www.megaupload.com/?f=UJDFYEUX I mentioned before that the condo still plays RBO! We don't, really, anymore, but it's the kind of thing that pops up again and again, and I want to be able to redownload it when it comes to be that time again.

http://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/Articles/000,015.htm Credit for finding this goes to Dia.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ImvlS8P ... r_embedded Totally don't remember what this one is. I think I meant to get back to it and never did. So far. Maybe this weekend.

http://timbercreek.wrangler.com/Catalog ... ts/69000SN You know what's awesome? Pants.

http://timbercreek.wrangler.com/ContactUs You know what's less awesome? Having to bookmark two separate pages on their site because their servers are slow as balls.

http://genzoman.deviantart.com/art/Manl ... -144852759 I bookmarked something on Deviantart! I almost never go to Deviantart. This is a particularly amusing rendering of Cloud Strife.

http://www.goodforher.com/feminist_porn_awards I think I linked this in the Unspoken thread about not-shit-tastic porn.

http://www.lustfilms.com/blogEn/2008/01 ... de-by-men/ And if I didn't bring this one up in that same thread, then I should have.

http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang ... edium=link Want to know how the universe started? I did. It's a good thing to keep on hand, somehow.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtVZ23Gf ... r_embedded Independent of his positions on any given matter, Richard Dawkins is a very persuasive and clear speaker and writer.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/ ... r-you-know A forum topic elsewhere about Let's Play videos and recommendations therefor. Used to watch a few of these. Not so much anymore, but hey.

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53637.0 Pretty sure I got this one.

http://vimeo.com/6223439 Scratch Perverts video. Well, indirectly.

http://amasci.com/elect/mcoils.html I don't even remember what this is. Must have been interesting.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_given_name A useful resource for my Legend of the Five Rings game.

And keep an eye out for the spoons!
