Nifty Online Resources

As a welcoming present to new friends phawkwood and hfx_ben and an early hobbit mirthday present to you lal, I'm posting a list of some online resources that I find useful, and with which you may already be familiar.

URL Shortening: http://snurl.com - shortens long links

Online References:
- Dictionaries: http://www.onelook.com - excellent English meta-dictionary
- Encyclopedias: http://www.wikipedia.org, http://vlib.org, http://www.enyclopedia.com
- Citation Indices: http://www.citeseer.org (CiteSeer/ResearchIndex), http://www.informatik.uni-trier.de/~ley/db/ (DBLP)

Instant Messaging
- Trillian Pro [MS Windows]: http://www.ceruleanstudios.com/trillian/ - subsumes AIM, ICQ, IRC, MSN Messenger, Yahoo (YIM); now in v2.0

Fire
I have a friend who uses Mac OS 10.2 and Fire, and it seems to work OK for him now. I'll check with him on whether and how he stabilized it.

I'm on 10.2.6 on a 500mhz PB G3 (Firewire) it works ok until I try to open a second AIM window, then it crashes. ::shrugs:: I can always just stick to the PC and use Trillian 'cuse it like rocks

Hey, as long as you have a PC!

(My other Fire-using friend has just the PowerBook G4.)
