What are your favourite websites that you fund useful and/or fun?

VideoJug is a website where most of the "articles" are video articles, not those crappy ones like on Ciao but good, funny ones.

Block Posters lets you turn pretty much any image into a poster for your wall.

Do you have some?

Had a peak at that Block Posters thing - looks really cool. Now just need to get some better quality paper and I'll be away Smile

I like, and check every day, the following

www.cracked.com - often silly lists (I'm currently reading about the 6 most horrifying ways people have made money) - and very often laugh out loud (one of my favourites is 100 spam subject lines, complete with commentary)

http://xkcd.com/ - very, very clever comic strip - not for the stupid!

http://www.plaidstallions.blogspot.com/ - the best part of this one being fashion mockery - catalogue pages from the 70s. Classic.

http://www.unnecessaryquotes.com/ - The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" quotation marks. Signs from around the world using quotes for emphasis.

http://awkwardfamilyphotos.com/ - does pretty much what it says on the tin!

How's that?!

If you like that, then also take a look for the Rasterbator (ooooer). It's a tool you can download and gives similar results to Blockposters. You can also rasterbate your phots online, but the desktop tool is more flexible.

Boring but very useful:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Has two programmes on it. Startuplite which safely and easily speeds up start up times and an anti-malware programme that is very effective.

Fun stuff.

I think I would like that quotation marks one. I wish I had written Eats, Shoots and Leaves.

I dont frequent any 'fun' sites to be honest!


(sorry for unnecessary quotation marks there)

A very good website that aims to help you make the most of your day with little fixes for all kinds of (generally computer-related) problems. Often a good source of recommendations of free/legal software for nearly everything.

My personal favourite which never fails to cheer me up is www.icanhascheezburger.com and it's sister site http://ihasahotdog.com/

Strictly for cat and dog lovers though.

Yep, I can see you've bought into the ICHC vibe already.

Some of those pics are priceless
