Animal Rights &
Vegetarian related links
J & Music related links
Below I have listed some of my favourite
sites, sites I have found useful and sites I regularly visit - hope
some of them can prove useful to others too... Please note that
all animal rights & vegetarian related links as well as all
triple j & music related links are contained on seperate pages
(see link above).
This is fun little site which can act both as your
personal internet journal and also as a series of message boards
or livejournal communities... It's a great place to post your thoughts
and have interesting discussions with people of similar interests.
I visit here a few times a week when I can... The only problem is
that it is a free, non-profit site, that doesn't use advertising.
Therefore to obtain membership, you need to know someone who uses
it (and don't ask me because I have no more 'memberships' to give
away), or you can choose to pay a small fee for the service.
One of the internet's best reference resources. It's
basically a whole heap of organised links to hundreds and hundreds
of the internet's best reference sites. It's also got things like
'link of the day', 'quote of the day', etc.
This is a great auction site that allows you to [fairly]
safely buy & sell various items over the internet. It's very
cheap to put items up for auction, and of course it is free to bid
on any item (of course you have to buy that item if you win though).
I've sold hundreds of dollars worth of stuff on here - you usually
get a LOT better prices over here than you would at Cash Converters
or a pawn broker!! And if you're lucky enough to be able to afford
to buy things then you can find great bargains on here too.
An Australian online CD & music retailer.
Prices are often quite reasonable - especially if you buy a few
CD's at once and save on postage costs... I've bought a few CD's
from here before and saved a fair bit... you can also find CD's
on here that might be extremely hard to find in other CD shops.
Quite a useful resource for people living in any
of the various major cities in Australia that it lists. It's basically
an interactive yellow pages combined with maps, event lists, etc...
I planned to make something like this a few years ago, but of course
I never got around to it, and Fairfax corporation beat me too it
and will probably make a bit of money out of it (like they need
it!!) pfft. :-/
This is a great fun site - lots of interactive surveys that give
you results - a good way to waste time. Lots of other fun little
things like that on there too... It's also got some handy notes
for secondary school students...
Dr Karl is a very interesting & knowlegable person. He does
talk-back on triple j on Thursday mornings as well as other radio
appearances. His web site is packed full of interesting stuff too
- well worth a look if you're the curious scientific type...
Participate in any of an enormous number of online petitions, or
even start your own...

Definately one of the most popular multipurpose messenging
applications... I've been using it for many many years - its user
base has now grown into the hundreds of millions and was bought
a year or two ago by AOL TimeWarner. This is still probably my preferred
Microsoft's messenging program. This one is also
extremely popular - a lot less functions an ICQ, which also means
it is a lot simpler and stuffs up less. A lot of people prefer this
to ICQ for having a chat because it is in many ways quicker &
Two of the other most popular messenging applications include AIM
(AOL Instant Messenger) and Yahoo!
Many people overlook the importance of security on
the internet. Below are some sites that I recommend everyone MUST
A great little program that safely removes advertising
'spy-software' and web-bugs that you probably didn't know were even
on your computer and spying on you for the purpose of advertising.
If you don't know what I'm talking about then that's even more reason
for you to visit here to find out more!
One of a couple of places on the internet where you
can download a free personal firewall to help protect your computer
TomCat Internet Solutions
A useful site with lots of information
about security and so on. This site is a must visit for all Windows
based internet users.
One of the best & most popular AntiVirus software applications.
It does cost money to purchase however (although I'd say it is probably
worth the money), but there is a free trial available. An up-to-date
(recent update) good anti-virus application is a MUST for all internet
If you've got a personal homepage that should be linked
on here please email me or use the suggestion box at the
bottom of the page!
A regularly updated site with message board, discussions,
news, info & links, etc... Well worth a look! Topics include
politics, music, art, animal & human rights, and more..
I recommend bookmarking for regular revisits!
I really like her pages -- quite original & artistic... she's
got a few different pages - worth checking out
Info about the amazing person that is denise, as well as some great
quotes and other stuff :)
Another original & artistic in both design & content - includes
artwork, poetry, etc.
I love her homepages! Original, neat &
organised, artistic, regularly updated -- she does great little
graphics. Not that much up here yet though but definately worth
keeping an eye on!
A great personal homepage with lots of music related stuff (gig
& cd reviews, top 100, etc.) but it hasn't been updated in a
Lots of stuff here - photos, info, jokes - its got the lot. :)
Nice clean, professional design - has personal details, recipes,
Nice personal homepage - photos, poems, friends and
stuff... I don't think it's been updated in a while though...
A personal homepage packed full of photos and stuff...
Well it's kinda getting built as I'm writing this but it'll probably
have stuff on it by the time you read this, so why not have a look...
I like this page - basically just links & ramblings and stuff
but there's something further about it I like? Unfortunately it
hasn't been updated in over a year though...
Hasn't been updated in agggeess. Has some photos
of friends & austin power pics.
I don't know what happened to this page - it kind
of like has nothing on it now - maybe it'll change again one day
A fantastic WYSIWYG HTML editer. Allows you
to edit the source code without the software screwing around with
it (unlike previous versions of MS Frontpage for example). Easy
to use and gives you great control. It is also quite popular - used
by a large number of web designers & home users. Of course,
this software application is quite expensive - so do the sensible
thing and burn it off a friend - (legal note: that
is a joke and I am not recommending illegally pirating software
- of course :-p )
Paint Shop Pro
A very useful graphic manipulation tool. It costs
a bit, but you can download a free evaluation copy. I'm not sure
if the latest versions are the same, but the evaluation copy used
to have full functionality or close to it, but expired after a certain
number of days - of course, there are special patches or 'cracks'
on the internet (if you know where to look) that allow this evaluation
period to go on indefinately - again, I'd never recommend such an
illegal thing of course! :)
Not my favourite - but it's the service I've been
using for many years (long before the Yahoo! Geocities days) - it's
policies, ads, services have gotten worse over the years, but I
haven't been bothered changing yet - mainly because of the hassle
in changing links. However, it is an easy & free place to host
your personal homepage if that's all you need...
A great, simple to use application for doing fancy
colourful 3d headings (like mine :-)) It does cost money, and the
free trial version only has very limitted usage.
This is a really cool site. It lets you get your
own domain name for free! Of course, like I did, you can pay a small
fee to actually have that domain registered in your name and get
rid of Namezero's advertising.
Message boards, guestbooks, etc. This is another
one of those services that is not the best one of its kind on the
internet - but its easy & free, and its what I've been using
for quite some time... Have a look around on the net and you can
find many other [better] sites that provide these services...
