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

    Me:

    - 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...

    MR
    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... ;)

    :D he he he....I think we've been through this one before...but here goes anyway :

    www.macrumors.com
    (who would have thought?!)

    www.istockphoto.com
    (I have photography on this site...just search for username "eyelikeart"...and yes I do like creative criticism)

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

    www.shockwave.com
    (killer games to help curb my boredom of work)

    www.weather.com
    (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
    Netscape
    Pacific Tech Homepage
    Epson
    Macrumors Forum Pages
    Altavista Search Engine
    CNET
    Videogames Reviews and Game News Site

    re: AOL

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

    anyway...yes it is sh*tty 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 :(
