You can also look at the hotlist I
built up while surfing the net. This document is about 12k in size.

service seems to have ended.)
Amiga Web Directory
- This used to be a
treasure of Amiga related information.
Unfortunately they stopped, although you can still find links to
important Amiga web sites. They have got a MacIntosh sister site,
for those interested (Shapeshifter users?).
- The paradise for lovers of freely distributable software. Just to
show that the old girl can still do it.
campaign for Any Browser
- A sickening aspect of the web nowadays is that people will gear their
homepage towards a certain browser or system.
This in spite of the fact that HTML was designed so that homepages could
be browsed using any browser on any system. The campaign for Any Browser
gives us reactionaries a chance to show that we do not like
The Built With Amiga campaign
- A side effect of assuming that everybody uses
the same browser to visit the web is the
assumption that everybody uses Wintel-crap to run that browser on. With
the Built With Amiga campaign Amiga users can show that -no- you do not
need 32 Meg of memory, a 2 Gig harddisk and a processor running at 200
Mhz (whatever that means) to be on the Internet. (The previous sentence was written at the
beginning of 1997)
Cool Site of the Day: Fran Dresscher's butt
- Apparently these people got attacked by the moral brigade for
something or the other. You never know with these religious idiots.

- Distributed Proofreaders is a web-based front-end for
Project Gutenberg (PG). Books usually enter PG after having been
scanned in, OCR'ed, corrected and formatted. Since the OCR process is not 100% perfect,
books that were scanned in need to be read page by page, and any scanning errors
(scannos) encountered need to be corrected. This can be a cumbersome process.
Distributed Proofreaders helps by allowing netizens to correct loose pages instead of
entire books. By proofing a page per day you can help Project Gutenberg! Distributed
Proofreaders is moving towards becoming the complete processing front-end for PG, in
which books are not just proofed, but also scanned, OCR'ed and formatted.
- This link hopefully leads to the newsgroup for the Amiga E
programming language. I say 'hopefully' because I never use a
webbrowser for newsreading and so I cannot tell you if the link

- As the name says. I used to play there.
- Project Gutenberg publishes public domain books in electronic form
over the internet. It is the oldest privately run service on the internet, predating
the World Wide Web well over 20 years.
- A collaborative encyclopaedia, based on WikiWiki software, which means anybody
can edit any program. It cannot be done, they said, but at the time of writing there
are over 100,000 entries, many of them complete trash, and just as many better than
in any other encyclopaedia.
Oortmerssen's WWW page
- Wouter is the author of the E programming language.
