The Obligatory Links Page
Various cool things I've come across that you might enjoy too.
The Burning Man Project
- Mary Schmary,
a great 4-woman a cappella group, including friend-of-a-friend Desiree.
- The Wonder
Woman Page. Only on the Web could it be so easy to find so much
about TV shows from my dim childhood. This site settled a very pesky
lunchtime debate about the two phases of the show and the transition
from WWII drama to modern-day (well, modern-day-70's) spy story.
- My friday nights are occupied by the
Friday Night Skate, which has a cool page.
- The Internet Movie Database
, the USA (Mississippi) site.
Women In The Engineering Industry: I just ran across this
whilst wandering through some friend's links. It's cool and very good.
- Comics on the Web. Some very
good independent stuff. They want money but not much.
They Might Be Giants
page. <pout>, it seems to have gone away.
- In addition to the other titles, real and imaginary, that I've got
(I'm in the market for more, by the way.. willing to trade... ),
I'm a fully ordained
minister in the
Universal Life Church. You can be too, if your browser supports
forms. These folks are serious about ordaining everybody.
- .. and speaking of wacko pseudo-religions... the
The Classics Page
Human Languages (ones that evolved by themselves)
- Constructed Languages
(spoken by humans but consciously created, like Esperanto).
The one that really takes the cake is the
created by the King of
a soverign nation near Milwakee, WI. The blurb I read said:
The King was an amateur linguist and was familiar with constructed
language projects such as Esperanto and Volapük. In this interest he
was inspired by a wonderful book, The Loom of Language by Frederick
Bodmer and Lancelot Hogben (New York: 1944).
Languages (not spoken by anybody, but stories have been written
in a variety of real languages.
- The Persistence Of Vision
ray-tracing program has a nice page.
- Metricom, Inc.: The folks are
putting up wireless 3MB/s transceivers on top of lampposts all around
the south bay. A Different Kind of Network.
- A collection of info about the network
that TCI is setting up around here.
- The Marathon
FTP site. A Different Kind of Doom (but better).
- Alta Vista: Wow.
These folks index Usenet. All of it. Oh, and the web too. Click here
and search the whispers of other people's conversations.
PGP-Related Utilies and Services
PGPacket, a handy perl utility to describe the contents of
PGP-encrypted messages. I've been using it to debug my PerlPGP
an incredibly handy Emacs/PGP interface. If you use rmail,
this provides a drop-in encrypt/decrypt/signing system.
Anonymity, privacy, security.: some info on encrypted
- The rsa-perl
page, including the 3-line t-shirt that's currently being reviewed
by the government for a munitions export license. Wacky.
- The GNU
Project. A Different Kind of Software.
- A paper describing the
Hurd, the new GNU operating system.
a version control system that runs on top of GNU's RCS.
- Perl: the greatest thing in languages since whitespace
- A Perl5
page. Also try perl.com.
- The current Perl5 Bugs
the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network, Florida site.
There's also the
Oklahoma site, and the
(Walnut Creek CD-ROM) site, and
california site. The florida site seems to be the most up to date.
Here's the module list.
- Same place, front page
CGI.pm module. Very useful.
Jeffrey Friedl has some great networking-related perl
modules. He's in Japan.
- A security module called
that promises to blow all that Java stuff out of the water.
Distributed, authenticated, restrictable Perl.
OpenGL Perl Module, plus the
library that implements OpenGL on non-SGI machines.
- Tcl/Tk. Well,
Tk is handy, Tcl is a nuisance-ridden path along the way. PerlTk is
- A great index of
- DigiCash and their introduction to
- Somebody's page on
- Yahoo!, of course. I spent a quarter
with these guys in Japan, before they bailed on the PhDs. Cool guys.
- Altavista. Yow. These
folks have this page listed although I don't know how they got here.
I suspect it's through them that my "FNDC mail"
page has gotten so
many hits (dozens of hits from all over the world on this one page
and one alone). Must be the word 'dominatrix' in the text...
Specification. Ok, like Wired says, minus several million points
for the non-sarcastic use of the phrase Virtual Reality
, but the protocols are cool anyway.
- The Dive, a shared-environment
project like VRML.
- The HTML-helper
mode Beta page. Gives HTML formatting and cookie-insertion to emacs.
- texi2html, which
turns TexInfo documents (like most GNU documentation) into HTML.
- Dave Siegel's
page design. This guy knows how to express himself very well. And he
has important things to say; a rare combination. A Different Kind of
Home Page. I've got a friend who works for him too.
- Dave Siegel's
single-pixel transparent gif, very handy for pushing text around
when HTML won't give you other ways to do it.
Kai's Power Tips and Tricks for Photoshop
- The Free Art Site
- Some information on the configuration of my

- An interesting book called
