Audio Links and other time killers:

JPO discontinued his site so I collected what I could and did a similar set:
Forum links
Consultant links
DIY links
Measurement links
Driver manufacturer links
Microphone links
Magazine links

Please keep in mind I am not keeping this up as a job. Let me know if there are dead links or you know a great one to add. Thanks.

Time kill Central: Movie database run by Amazon. Great reference but the real value is more or less hidden. You can "vote" on what you like and then look up your vote record. So you get a list of your favorite movies in order of preference. You can also keep track of your movie library. Also great movie trivia and goofs. I respect this one because Titanic is not listed in the top 250 of all time
