cool sites
« on: November 15, 2006, 05:30:20 AM »
I sort of missed this thread so far and I liked Bonds additions on SCN, so here he goes....

www.pandora.com - they only play what you like best.

www.drawahouse.com - show me a house, show me a soul...

www.worth1000.com  - the best pctures in the world

www.darkarmada.nl - that is from where i got my sig and where I am working as a volunteer, as chief writers. Nice to see and Borgman, clawhammer and Pleiades also visit the forum every now and then.

Once sprinkled his bed with a gheeter/
His father got whoost/
Took hold of a cnoost/
And gave him a pack on his meeter.

Shran, if it's alright with you, I'm going to go ahead and move this over to the computers forum since it fits the theme better there. And since this is a topic that can get lots of new, useful posts, I'll go ahead and sticky it as well.

Given that the links aren't related to its stated subject matter, this thread doesn't belong in Videogaming&Computers.

Might I suggest TrivaGames&Fun?

Links to useful websites; potentially including gaming, music downloads, online shopping, software, & hardware, isn't related to computers and gaming? I think it fits the theme here far more than such a random forum as TG & F.

No, a general list of websites isn't quite relevant to this forum. If it was specifically sites about applications or hardware, that would be a different matter. Gifts, dating, image galleries, "random cool thing I saw", don't belong.

Never mind Shran, I guess I'll move it back to GaL where it isn't such an "issue." I'm not going to banish it to irrelevance in the TG&F forum though. I'll still keep it stickied because I think it's a useful topic.

“The boat dipped and swayed and sometimes took on water, but it did not sink; the two brothers had waterproofed it well. I do not know where it finally fetched up, if it ever did; perhaps it reached the sea and sails there forever, like a magic boat in a fairytale. All I know is that it was still afloat and still running on the breast of the flood when it passed the incorporated town limits of Derry, Maine, and there it passes out of this tale forever.” ― Stephen King, It"
