This is the world's most popular free e-mail service. It is what
both Amanda and use...plus Outlook Express incorporates Hotmail,
so you can check your mail with out even going to the webpage.
Note...expect it not to work about 10-20% of the time.
A great sight with a bunch of options...we like Search, Games, Clubs, News, etc.
Heck, it's where we go to school....maybe you'll learn something.
Go Ask Alice- This is a great site, people
write in and someone (alias: Alice) answers their questions...a
huge archive...new questions weekly.
Times- A great news source...go to find real news....you
have to register to read the articles...but it's free!
Hardware- Amanda has never been here....but I go there all
the time...it's kind of technical but if you are interested in
some in depth computer stuff this is the place.
93.1- A radio station from Indy net broadcasted 24/7. Plus
it is better than most of the radio stations in the greater Lafayette
Internet Speed Test- I like this site because
it lets you see how fast (or how slow) your internet connection
is...don't worry it might take a while to load if you are using
a dial-up connection!
This is a recent find of mine...
Free shipping...sounds good huh?
Well what if I told you that your order would be on your doorsteps
next day... still for free! Cool huh? Next day shipping usually
runs ALOT! This store is great...I ordered my speakers at 11:50pm
on a Monday...at 4pm Tuesday they were delivered...now that is
how internet shopping is supposed to be... this place has earned
my business. Update 4/26/01- They no longer have free
overnight shipping...now they are just a "normal" internet store
that is in line with all the rest. I would still order if they had a
good deal, but not as likely!
Boilermaker Central- This is my Purdue club...join
and participate...right now it's kind of pitiful and I'd like
to get it a little more active!
Couple- This is my girlfriend Amanda and I's page...check
it out...it's pretty similar to this as I haven't made each "unique
yet" but you will find some different stuff on it!
So you want love, health, or emotional advice. This is a good
place to start...it is the site of the infamous Dr. Drew...you
know him off of MTV's Loveline.
This is the place I go when I need to find some file or maybe
I'm looking for some shareware to use and abuse. This place is
pretty popular and has a huge selection so it's always a good
place to check out!
Conditions- If you live in good 'ol Indiana this is a great
place to go. It only runs December until March, but during those
months it is a great help. You go to the page and it tells you
to some extent what the roads are like in the state. I'm sure
that your state has one of these too, just search for it!
Bend Tribune- This is the paper I grew up with...it is still
a pretty good paper...it's no NY Times...but for a nice quick
look at the news it can't be beat. Plus if your from the South
Bend area you can check out the obituaries no matter where you
are in the world.
Exponent- This is my local paper now...it's the one I get
5 days a week, picked up various locations around campus. It
is actually pretty darn good for a student produced paper...I
Movie Database- This is the place I've been going to since
'98 for all my movie news. This site is wonderful...you can see
every movie nearly every actor has ever been in. Search by filming
site (that movie was filmed THERE?), actor, movie, etc. This
place definitely needs checked out!
was stupid- I just found this, saw a guy at school looking
at this page. They have a lot of funny pictures, sounds, and
movies...this is definitely a good site to check out if you want
to blow some time.
Date- If you've never seen the show on UPN it's pretty good.
The website has outtakes and stuff so you can laugh. The page
seems to have that "Homemade" feel to it, not what
you'd expect from a "real" TV show....but other than
that it's cool. I just wish they have more updates on what happens
to the people they hook up! Like if they go out again or something...they
always say they'll keep us informed but that never happens.
House of Whoop Ass- Ok, this page is vulgar, and there are
some "inappropriate" sponsors, so please make sure
you are at least 18 years of age, not psychotic or mentally unstable
before you go there. Ernie does have some good advice to prevent
spam and how to get out of a speeding ticket. I take no responsibility
for what you find on his site...just remember that I found it
interesting particularly those two sections.
Found this site last year and found it funny...see what is illegal
in various states...I can almost GUARANTEE that you have broken
some law in the past year somewhere.
Online - This is a site that just talks about random Purdue
stuff. It's actually quite professional. I have on occasion submitted
a story for the page...but nothing dramatic.
MSN - This
is my personal homepage, I like to customize the content...its
my guaranteed way to get my dose of news!
Digital Camera's - This page is great! They have excellent
and in-depth reviews, and a great discussion section. If you
are thinking of getting a digi cam this is a stop you need to
make! This is the site that helped me choose my camera.
- What a great page! They have practically hundreds of urban
legends...you won't believe some of the stuff you thought was
The DMA - Ok...if
you get ANY SPAM in your mailbox click here...try to get rid
of it...this takes your name off of lists...hopefully this works...if
it does and I notice a decrease I'll make sure the world knows!
Purdue Doug's -
This is one of my new Counter-Strike homes! I'm an admin so I
hang out here a lot. Seems to be some pretty good competition
and a bunch of maps to vote on.
3D Files - This places
covers a pretty broad range of computer related topics. I go
here mainly for the forum which is pretty good.
Tweak Files - This
is the sister site of 3d Files. They list shareware and freeware
tweaks on a daily basis. I've found some pretty neat utilities
here...some of which I've been using quite a bit. I check this
page usually every day or two. I definitely recommend them!
Ctrl-Alt-Del.com - This page does a lot of work for you.
They cover a bunch of computer related sites and post their top
stories daily. This will save you from having to go to a zillion
sites to see some new interesting stuff! They also review some
stuff themselves, but their main function is as a portal.
