- No. I will not be like everyone else. I won't put in a link to Yahoo. I...oh, damn.
- Netscape's list of search engines. I recommend AltaVista, which is huge and powerful -- almost too huge and powerful. Get familiar with its syntax for best results. Webcrawler is less comprehensive, but easier to use.

- Geographic name server - gives lattitude and longitude for just about anywhere in the US. Includes a link to the Xerox PARC map server. Very, Very cool.
