General Links

The following links are provided as a convenient list of websites of a more general nature.  Most of this information has been sourced from PC Magazine's Top 100 Classic Websites (

Wikipedia Launched in 2001, Wikipedia is the people's encyclopaedia in that it contains information and entries submitted by internet users and not some university boffin.  It has become the major online resource for global knowledge, with nearly eight million articles written in 253 languages.
Snopes Snopes is the site you should go to if you receive an email giving you a dire warning about something or other and then urging you to pass the information on to everybody in your address book. It allows you to check the truth of a story before sending it out to your friends only to be told later it is completely false and you are left with egg all over your face.
The Internet Movie Database This is the most complete movie guide ever with up-to-the-minute movie news, actor and filmmaker bios. It has a great index of every aspect of every film and TV show you can remember. 
WebMD WebMD is a great replacement for your friendly GP. It offers tips for everything from exercise to heart health in layman's terms and this Internet doc is the No. 1 go-to spot for quick self-diagnosis. Remember, though, WebMD is not a replacement for a real physician—not yet, at least. This colourful site brings you the latest news of astronomy, space science, and space travel (manned and unmanned missions), top-notch articles, photo galleries, videos, star charts and observing tips, discussion forums, polls—everything you could want for exploring the final frontier from your PCs. The Web site for PC Magazine includes everything the magazine has built its name on: hands-on product reviews from our PC Magazine Labs, expert commentary from some of the biggest names in the biz, and breaking tech news.
