Links

Many links to websites shared on social media are not even read by the people posting them. As a reaction to that, this is a list of sites that have proven to be useful over a prolonged period of time.

Huge library of community created free audio books.
Small programs and algorithms each with versions in multiple languages.
Great site with lots of realtime earthquake data and maps.
Vintage worldwide radio podcasts - my favourites are thrillers, sci-fi and strange tales.
Long running podcast and blog for supernatural stories.
For computers old and new, an ASCII table is a handy resource.
Handy site when you need more than ASCII.
