JIMSUN Our Favorite Sites [back] [home]

   Yup, you guessed it--this is little more than a mildly dressed-up version of our Netscape Navigator bookmarks files with much of the cruft removed :-). We visit most all of these sites on a fairly regular basis, but if you should happen across one that's no longer any good, please let us know. A mailto URL is at the bottom of this page. Thanks!

   The [new!] flag usually means that the item is "new" since the last time I updated this page or that the item was added less than 30 days ago. (Sometimes a link is mistakenly tagged as "new" when its link changes.)
