The Complete Guide To Protecting Your Privacy Online
While nothing on the internet may not be totally safe or private, here's a guide with some terrific best practice tips. I'm betting that long time users will find a tip or two they didn't know about and can put to use. I found a few that were things I hadn't thought of. This article falls into the "must read" category. :-)

SimplyChecklists: Free Checklists for Everyday Life
This is a fantastic compilation of links to all sorts of lists. From the article:
"....checklists for moving and newborn babies to college and wedding. Checklist categories include Business/Finances, Education, Emergencies/Storms, Family, Food/Pantry, Green Living, Hobbies/Sports, Home, Jobs, Medical/First Aid, and more."
Now if there something that would do all the tasks on my lists..........:-)

Noupe is a site that describes itself as the curious side of Smashing Magazine. You'll find the same high quality content that makes Smashing Magazine a success (and a personal favorite).

Learning at the British Library
This corner of the British Library is aimed at teachers and students, but there's a lot to look at here. It's one of the sites that I lost a bit of time at so if you find yourself at the site two hours later don't blame me. :-) If you zip through this section try the home page of the British Library - it's an awesome place to roam around.

Hmmm.... the rating for this post is suspiciously low. I would have given this more then 5 stars if I could have.

I think these are some great finds, though I think I'm going to spend way too much time on Noupe now.

Thanks for these links Rhiannon. Awesome finds, all. I love it when you make posts like this one. You have a way of finding things I miss. =)

Awww, thanks, that's nice of you to say.
I'm glad you enjoy the things I turn up.
If someone asked me what I do I would probably tell them I'm a professional rock turner - I like to poke around and find things and share them. :-)
