last edited: 26 Jul 2022 – I added numbers to each section and to switched to numbered lists everywhere. I have also started to remove all of the dead links and have added them to the end in case someone wants to try to find them again. =)


This is a massive collection of links that I put together over a decade ago, now (2008). I am now starting to comb through them to weed out all of the dead links (Jul 2022), and I may start adding new links in the future.

If any of these links are dead or need correcting, or if you have recommendations please let me know.
