My top ten favourite websites

Hi all.

I had the idea today to post my 10 favourite sites, along with a brief reason why. These are the ones I visit most often. I'd be interested in comments, as well as suggestions for possible alternatives (along with reasons why), and if anyone has a list of their own. Well here goes, in no particular order:

1-www.google.co.uk

What can I say? google has become so comprehensive that the name itself has become a verb to many people. It can be a goldmine of information, just as long as you can ask the right questions

2-www.dilbert.com

A little light relief in the rat race of life

3-www.bbc.co.uk/news

There's a big wide world out there, and things are happening in it

4-www.pcadvisor.co.uk

When google flounders, you can always count on the talent here.

5-www.imdb.com

You just know that you've seen that guy somewhere else, but where?

6-www.dailymail.co.uk

It's good to get a different slant on the news than just aunties built in bias.

7-www.ebay.co.uk

For when you just have to have it, no matter how obscure it is.

8-www.halifax-online.co.uk

Online banking, lets me do just about anything I want to except download and print out my own banknotes!

9-www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/freefun/wallpaper

Every month without fail I get a new wallpaper picture of somewhere in these isles, along with this months calender.

10-www.moneysavingexpert.co.uk

If you want a good deal on just about anything (lets face it, who doesn't?) this is pretty much a no-brainer.

I've deliberately not made the links active. I'm not touting for trade for any of them, merely telling people about them. Hope people like them.

WTM

I serendipitously came upon this website whilst doing some serious research this afternoon (on a bread related subject) :-
