Selection of links to various websites and web resources around the Internet that I personally find to be of interest.

Websites and web links of General interest…

    Guide to Self learning resources for Computer science. Including subjects such as Data Structures, operating systems, networks, programming.
  • NZ Electrical Forum
    Open discussion forum for all things related to the electrical trade in New Zealand including equipment, regulations.
  • Hacker News
    Computer science focussed discussion forum along with touching on societal issues as well. Caution: While still some good commentary, bring a bag of salt. Astroturfing detected + Echo chamber effect similar to Reddit.


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

  • Metservice NZ Rain Radar

  • 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.
