    Excluding mainstream websites like Google or Wikipedia, what are some highly useful and free websites out there?

    I would vote for Mint.com, a personal finance tracker and budgeting service. It's just really nice to see a complete financial snapshot of your life and see where money is going in and out. The site also offers advice on where you can save money.

    The SCP Foundation. Anytime I find myself without anything to do, I'll inevitably hit it up.

    Like with any user generated site on the internet, you tend to run across more mediocre entries than you do truly great ones (though rarely ever any starkly terrible ones, since the community does a decent job of separating the wheat from the chaff), it's those rare few gems that make the site worth visiting.

    But as I'm a photography nerd (what my daughter calls me) they might not speak to you.

    Pinterest boards about design and typography can keep me enthralled for aeons.

    They sure speak to me. :)
    But I am getting a bit bored by the fro lately.

    Somehow I find Tony Northrup very entertaining.

    I know what you mean. He can get a bit repetitive because he's on each week.

    I'll look up TN.
