Links

I decided it’s time to bring back my good old fashion links page to websites that I find interesting or useful. Some of these I’ve had book marked for two decades now.

Forums

American Weather - this is the best weather forum that I’ve found. I’ve been lurking there for years.

WXForum.net - I can’t speak for the weather aspect of this forum but they have a wealth of information in the personal weather station subforums.

News

Hacker News - Always has links to interesting articles and loads of interesting comments about those links.

Blogs

Ken Shirriff’s blog - Lots of interesting posts old computes and stuff and also reverse engineering chips and things. Lots of it is over my head but still love reading it.

Dr. Pheo’s blog - a blog by a medical expert on pheochromocytomas. With Pheo’s being so rare this is an excellent resource to people like me who know they’ll probably have one someday.

Music

Metal Archives - This is my go to website when it comes to information about metal hands or just metal in general.

Dark Lyrics - Metal song lyrics. I’ve been looking at and using this one for decades

Fun

Geocaching -High tech treasure hunt. We stil prefer to use a stand alone GPS because that’s how we started in the early 2000s but you can use a smart phone now. It’s helped us discover tons of new places.

Fitness

Street Parking - Street Parking is the programming we use for our fitness in our garage gym. It’s HIIT and a lot like Crossfit was. Been using it for a couple of years now.

Science

Where Is Webb? - It’s really cool how NASA has this page setup tracking the status and location of the James Webb space telescope.

Computers

FreshPorts - FreshPorts is the easiest place online to search for FreeBSD ports.
