Ready to leave and find other interesting locales
on the web? If you liked what you saw here, try a few sites
I can whole heartedly recommend:
Hosted Sites and Domains (not availible)
Resources: These are links to many useful resources I either use on my computer, or for this site.
WEB HOSTING & DESIGN
My present webhost, HostGator has offered some great support
at very reasonable rates. The 24 hour customer service, concise flash
tutorials, and site tools make it a great service...Once you get over the
fact they have a little blue cartoon alligator for a mascot.
Dynamic Drive has a great script repository, online editing
tools and forums to help ot aspireing webmasters.
The CountryMan For users of WebTV, this site offers some functionality for
web designers limited by the browsers lack of java support. It even has
a WebTV Viewer availible for download link.
Simply the Best isin't that it used to be, so this link
goes right to the sitemap that is so hard to find buried in the confusing
navigation. Not the best anymore, but has some great free and shareware
availible for download, scripts, fonts, drivers and sound files.
GUI Stuff offers both layouts and turorials for webmasters
as well as some tools and links to other sites that for the text
and graphics they use in the layouts.
Formerly, Bratta.com, DHTML Central has great free for use
navigation scripts, forums, links and tutorials. Bratta.com is now owned by
Where Bratta was, OpenCube has popped in. It offers it's
commercial menu navigation systems and other scripts free. But they imbed
the links back to their site in the coding.
"phpBB is a high powered, fully scalable, and highly
customizable Open Source bulletin board package. phpBB has a
user-friendly interface, simple and straightforward administration panel".
RanmaGuy, A.K.A. Theo Chakkapark, is a genius, and wrote
and translated the popular Oekaki Image board system for Open Source usage.
The Hut Fridge uses a version of that system.
yubnub Another smart student that came up with this idea as an
entry for a 24 hour programing contest. It is a command line for the web,
kinda like a shortcut key. Type "Obaba" and it will bring you here.
The best part is that anyone can add a new command line, so if it
isn't taken, then it makes it easier for people to find your site.
There is even a method to install the search in your browser, -HERE-

I'd never whip the llama, but WinAMP is one of the best
media tech proggies around. With support for skins, visualizations, and
other plug-ins as well as the additions of SHOUTcast, Raido, Streaming
Video...what other new tricks can we teach this wily ruminant?

ART & GRAPHICS
This award winning program is rather small but
as strong as a powerhouse, like Photoshop. Extras allow you to save
your progress as a watchable file. For beginners, one can learn the
methods used to create effects, and rumor is that they are considering
bringing the paintchat function back. You, all your friends drawing in a
collaborative online effort. All you animators look for it's sister program,

JAPANESE, ANIME AND MANGA RELATED SITES
Set up to load the Classic version, the Anipike has been
one of the best places around as a resource to fans of anime and Japanese
pop culture buffs alike. If nothing else, it's a great place to start if you have
an interest in the subject at all.
Armitage's Dimension seems fairly laid back until you click the links.
They have a wonderful J-pop/Anime related Internet radio station that
runs on listener requests! Definately worth a listen.
And if you want to sing along with your favorite
tunes on AD radio, you can visit animelyrics. There are quite a few ways to
find the title you want and if you have a handle on it, you are able to sign
up and contribute as well.
If you are serious about browsing Japanese sites, then
try and purchase from NJStar. They have several applications that will aid in
browsing, word processing and they have links to some transitional resources
Quite a few years back, this site was free. They still offer some
free goodies, butto support themselves, they have the support for the programs
availible through subscription.
:This site is fairly simple and mostly text, but it packs a lot of info
on the seiyuu working in the industry today as well as some other bits if you
explore a bit.

HUMOR AND WEB COMICS
B.S.T.? Something to be seen to be believed.>>back to TOP

FLASH POWERED CONTENT
"Everybody! Everybody!" Homestar, Strongbad,
Trogdor and more. Flash madness.

Just stay away from the loops.
Not as campy as when it began, but...Napster BAD!
Remember those stick fighter animations? The
authors site seems to have vanished, but the work remains
on Newgrounds (listed above) in this collection.
One of those sites that I HAVE to
recommend even tho' it's in Korean. This is a colaborative effort
of three people, best known for the "There She Is!!" animations.
the webcomic list is a comprehensive up to date
database that allows you to subscribe to all your favorite
online comics. More importantly, if your comic isn't listed, you
can add it and it is availible for public subscription.
Much like TWCL, Comic Alert allows you to subscribe to comics
and recive a notice when they are updated. They
require a certain amount of subscribers tho'
