- The Daily WTF - a regular dose of schadenfreude.
- AlterSlash ~ the unofficial SlashDot digest - has an algorithm to pull out the best comments for each Slashdot article displayed in digest format. Its got me back reading Slashdot, the comments are actually the best bit!
- Security Now! - podcast on computer security issues. Steve Gibson does a good job of explaining the fundamentals, and how they relate to security hazards. Could be a good place to point people who are having trouble with some networking concepts. Some are a bit less interesting than others - safe to skip to the Buffer Overrun episode. (Thanks Ben)

- Opera Widgets: Circular Tetris and Bounce. (Thanks Ellecer)
