    Greetings,
    I'm not sure who the Moderator of this section is (assuming there is one..) but I think it would be a good idea to make a Sticky here listing some useful sites that often come in handy. Back at Sciforums we had one going and it was quite the compilation. Just a thought.

    This is a few of my anthropology/archaeology links. I have some other catagories that others might find useful and will post them as well, but I just wanted to get the thread started. Good Idea!

    Lots of nice stuff there SkinWalker, and thanks. I must admit however, that I was thinking more along the lines of Useful links with respect to this Computer Science section.

    True... I just don't have a lot of those kinds of links. I usually just google key-words like "shields up" when I want to find one.

    Perhaps this thread might be better served in the Links sub-forum. I forgot about that one. But I thought a thread that created a massive list of links in various catagories would be useful on a science forum.

    SkinWalker: I'm working on culling up a good list. I should be able to get it up by tomorrow (1:22 pm EST here right now). It's going to be Computer-specific, and pretty thorough.

    Edit: I moved the data from glaucon's post to sheppard's, since sheppard was the original author who compiled the list. I don't think glaucon's intention was to plagerize the other list, but just wanted to share the links with us here.

    I'm of the mind that no harm is done if glaucon & sheppard agree and since the list is now in sheppard's post, I'll leave it up to him to decide whether or not to leave it on The Science Forum. It is a wonderful list of links and I've used several already.

    The following was originally posted by Sheppard in another forum. I've updated the thread so he can continue to get the credit, but thanks go to glaucon for sharing it with us. We still need to add some links in the sections near the bottom, such as GIMP etc. -- SkinWalker

    GAIM. Stop using the commercial AIM, MSN, ICQ, Yahoo clients, because they're full of ads. Stop using Trillian, too, because that's also lousy. Compared to that, GAIM does the same thing, crashes less, loads faster, and basically performs better.

    Open Office. Don't buy MS Office. Download this instead.

    Linux. I'm sure you all know this one.

    Firefox. www.firefox.comWhy the hell are you still using IE?

    media players Worry not. You don't need to buy one:

    hey i complied that!

    And I believe in giving credit where credit is due! Thanks Sheppard.

    Another helpful site is http://compsci.ca/ which is dedicated to helping programmers learn new languages and improve their skills. You will need to register to download and post but you can read other peoples problems without registering.

    Some useful resources when looking for computer science conferences, call for papers, etc.:

    http://www.confsearch.org (computer science conference calendar and search engine)
    http://www.wikicfp.com/ (a wiki for call for papers)
    http://www.ieee.org/web/conferences/search (only IEEE conferences)
    http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/impact.html (impact of publication venues - quite outdated, unfortunately)
