Do you ever stumble upon a great internet resource that you just have to bookmark because it's so awesome? It's always nice to find a site that's got everything you're looking for in that specific category.

For instance, when relocating somewhere this site is great:

Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed

I don't know if anyone else has ever seen this site, but I think it's very handy and thought I'd share it with everyone on here. Has everything you'd ever need to know about any city in any state in America. Demographics, school ratings, water quality, local hazards, and more all in one convenient spot.

... and i found this site for people who have trouble making a grocery list, who forget to make one, and then regret it later once they're at the store (and they are probably hungry, too). Impulse buying! It's great for busy moms (like me) and if you like being organized. Once you put in all your favorite recipes, based on what you eat that week, it makes the list FOR you, and helps you not overspend:

Weekly Menu Planner with Grocery List, Online Family Meal Planner - How Does She Do It

*Ladies* If you have little princess running around, you might play hairdresser every now and then. I found this helpful site for doing my daughter's hair:

Hairstyles For Girls - The Story Of A Princess And Her Hair



So if you have a unique, useful website of your own, please feel free to share.

I look at auto trader online a lot lately. I use altavista as my search engine. And for whatever reasons I cant imagine, read the madison.com online frequently. Strange, eh?

Gizmodo, the Gadget Guide - tech-related goodness
Engadget - more tech talk

etc.

I find IRC to be the single most useful resource on the internet. It's mostly a techie resource... a lot of it's usefulness has been replicated on Twitter to some extent. But still amazing.

It varies based on my current interest. My current channels are

#debian-kernel on irc.debian.org
##c++ on freenode
#perl on freenode
#android-dev on freenode

I'll also follow sergy and larry around. They host chats every now and then.
