What web sites do you check compulsively throughout the day/week?


- www.macrumors.com (obviously)
- www.baynews9.com (local news and weather - keeping my fingers crossed that global warming will reverse before I have to leave the office)
- www.nifty.org (not for the faint of heart, or MyMemory)
- www.salon.com (brilliant, just brilliant)
- www.nytimes.com ('specially on Sundays)

wow, we're more alike than i knew...

nytimes.com -- best layout there is, i say
nifty.org (hehehehe)
and been to salon a few times...

other than those,
onion.com weekly
landoverbaptist.com monthly
snopes.com to check updates
apple.com to look for *anything* at all new

and when i'm particularly bored, shockwave's jigsaw puzzles do the trick nicely :) and comedycentral's south park pinball... ;)

www.istockphoto.com (http://www.istockphoto.com)

www.aol.com (http://www.aol.com)
(I have to check my email about 2 dozen times a day u know ;))

(obviously, anyone from here knows the weather in New Orleans can do anything within a 5 minute period...ex. it's 65? outside in May - this is very abnormal for a New Orleans summer!)

and to think, i liked you so much. then i find out you use AOL.

you're on probation for using such a service. i hope this doesn't become a problem. you will cancel your AOL accounts promptly. have a nice day.

Here is what I think of AOL:

You have to pay for S you probably will never use (parental control, and you are young...)

As slow as a slug

According to what I have seen, IE is more popular, and free.

I use Netscape (I know, slow and "heavy", but I might switch to Mozilla) and I usually visit these sites (in absolutely no particular order):
Apple Computer Corp. Website
Pacific Tech Homepage
Macrumors Forum Pages
Altavista Search Engine
Videogames Reviews and Game News Site

Any time is a great time for iPod.

u should know that I am literally laughing right now at my computer screen...:D

anyway...yes it is ******* service...but for me at the point I'm in with my life it works out quite well...

I only pay $3.95 a month to keep my account...I use the DSL to access email & such...and I use AIM anywhere...so no worries...

but when I was about to jump ship and to go Oklahoma City....ugh....sorry...I was looking into other options....Earthlink was my first pick..but it wasn't available in the mid-west :(
