My Web directory

Let's explore the Web.

The online space is vast and still expanding. Sadly, not thanks to the users but rather spam bots and focus black holes - the social networks. Therefore it's good practice for surfers to share links between each other in "web directories" like this one. So here are links I thought you might find useful.

Free software directory - a collaborative catalog of free software
Linux Kernel Mailing List - this is my preferred instance
Cidr.xyz - when you don't want to die over subnet tables [3]
Lack rack - nice hack that I use for my servers
Installing Wine on Linux - this is tricky task for many distros
Floppydisk.com - new and refurbished floppies for okay prices [3]
Which JDK? - neat website for navigating alternative Java Dev Kits
JAR Download - Java libraries packed in .jars
Perl monks - best place to seek help and wisdom in Perl
WinWorld - online museum/library of vintage operating systems
AtariAge - hub for enthusiasts of Atari PCs and consoles
UESP Wiki - everything I ever needed for Morrowind I found here [2]
Modern thermodynamics - the best reference page for thermodynamics

And here are some good readings I found on the Web. Please note, that I am not necessarily a fan of authors, but I consider these specefic blog posts to be interesting at least.
