i highly suggest the internet public library; click on reference when you get there. windows media has some nice content. spinner is a little internet radio app, but it works right of the website too. if you run, you gotta check out runner's log, so easy.
ah, homebrew. . . . tastes so good, so many varieties, beer . . . well, brewing your own beer is rather easy. and it doesn't take much to get started, for a little more than $100 you can be brewing your first batch. read the how to brew book.  that and reading sites on yahoo should tell you everything you need to know. i can't remember where i got my starter equipment, but that place sucked anyway. now i pretty much do all my shopping at hombrew adventures. it's good place to get recipe kits. also, sign up for homebrew digest. only drinking beer is more fun than reading about it. enjoy
