These are either
friends, relatives or sites that I use myself frequently.
Apollo Flight Journals - A friend of mine, David Woods', put together this amazing site for
NASA by scanning in and listening to millions of words worth of
transcripts of the Apollo missions. A herculean task to which he's
devoted years of his life. He also has a book
"How Apollo Flew to
the Moon" and contributed much of the sound for the film
Shadow of The Moon".
- wonderful. If there could only be one website left on the
whole internet, this should be the one!
is my web homepage, and the BBC is one of the reasons I enjoy living
in Britain and am proud to be British.
- amazing, huge archive of ALL British Pathe's newsreels! You can view
old movies for free.
Webcams caught my interest very quickly. The ability to see,
"live", what was happening anywhere in the world still blows my mind. I used to have a 'voyeurism'
page here, in the mid 90s, when the very first webcams were coming online. My favourites
George Square in Glasgow,
Times Square New York,
Nessie on the Net,

I found this when just before Google bought it and it was called Keyhole.
One of those defining moments when a new development blows your mind.
Absolutely amazing. Find somewhere you know - fly to it across the planet,
and then go down to take a worms eye view of it - suddenly all the hills and
mountains spring up.
Google Images - find images of anything, instantly!
- find news from anywhere, anytime about anything! Configure 'news alerts'
to keep you up to date on any topic.
- excellent quality newspaper often taking a different view of things than
the rest of the press. I read it for the very simple reason that I always
find something interesting in it.
- excellent website and forums where I can lose myself for hours.
- go back in time!
