To me, a cool Web site is one that combines an attractive
design with lots of useful information presented in a

is one of my favorite hangouts, and as developer of the site, well,
I have a vested interest in online fun.

undoubtedly find that
FedWorld is a great place to find information on
the Federal Government.
- Another favorite is
The Internet Scout,
originally created by the talented Gleason Sackman. Good stuff!

a people and read a lot of history books. I'm also a big fan of
the History Channel

fond memories of Thunderbirds!
