Websites and web links of personal (my own) interest.

  • Metservice NZ Rain Radar
    Rain Radar – While I no longer give weight to MetService’s land based forecasts anymore I have found their rain radar their single most useful weather tool.

  • [Matrix] Messaging Protocol
    Federated decentralized interoperable messaging
    https://matrix.org/
  • Element.io – Messaging Client for Matrix
    Front end Instant messaging client powered by Matrix. Element.io was formerly called Riot.IM
    https://element.io
  • DuckDuckGo – Web Search engine
    An alternative to using the User-Tracking Google Search Engine. Search accuracy ebbs and flows in cycles I’ve found. At times, it comes close to rivalling Google, other times, it can fail miserably.
