Websites I used to visit regularly though not so much these days. Mainly would only land on them during an Internet search. May still be of interest to others.
- Lobsters – Specialized Computing discussion community.
Originally similar to HackerNews in it’s format, evolved to focus more on quite specific and specialized aspects of computing.
- Reddit – “Front page of the Internet”
General discussion forums and link aggregator. Have deliberately linked to their old (format) site. New site is awful to use.
- Meet Up – Use the Internet to get off the Internet.
Good if you are wishing to meet people in a new town who share similar topics of interests to you. This is not a dating or otherwise pick up website.
Dropship Shopping site with some 2nd hand goods on the side for sale. Check prices. Sometimes international sellers are selling things way above NZ RRP.
Other links have since been culled (commented out in geek speak) as I no longer believe those websites in question provide much value.
