This is a list of interesting, useful, and visually attractive sites that we've found on the WWW. All of these actually existed at the time we visited them. Some of the sites listed below have special requirements, which are noted at the end of the description.
Nerd World - Internet Subject Index
Great subject index site for nerds, geeks, and innocent tech-oriented folks. Seems pretty fast, too.
The Web Site Garage
Nice web page tune-up service for free, also offers comprehensive services for commercial clients. Good explanations and suggestions.

Buying PC hardware and software these days can be a real trial. The best magazine for serious consumers also has the best on-line product pricing web site.
Art by Math / Fractals Artshow
A visually delightful web site, also has art links and product data. Worth a visit, but bring a fast modem because some of the best images are pretty big. (Also has cool music if you're set up to receive MIDI background tunes)
Incredibly cool site for live internet cameras and other live data, nice organization and good content.
