- The Week in Chess,
Mark Crowther's weekly comprehensive summary of world chess events. ChessBase,
the producers of Fritz and ChessBase, has daily news articles. Chess
Ninja is a source for rumors about the convoluted world of chess politics.
- TheOneRing.net, a great Lord
of the Rings fansite.
- The most intriguing aspect of the wonderful Harry Potter
books is how creative J.K. Rowling was when coming up with the names of characters,
places and spells. The Guide to
Harry Potter Name Etymology is a particular good guide on the origins
of some of these names. And I thought my two years of high
school Latin would never come in handy!
- CricInfo is the site for
live cricket coverage.
- I read The Age for news from Melbourne.
