|Alan Moore wrote Watchmen> and Swamp Thing and is generally considered the most bitchin' writer in Western comics. Stephen Camper has created the definitive Alan Moore fan site. And in case you'd become disenchanted with Moore for more-or-less openly milking the Image phenomenon to get rich as quickly as possible before the comics industry collapses completely, check out the finally-released From Hell compilation or the recent League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, both utter gems.

|Why is listening to audiobooks on your Rio player so painful? Partially it's the user-hostile Audible.com website (e.g., you need to wade through several pages of "I agree to receive spam" before they'll even relinquish a sample). But mostly it's because Usability and Avoiding Legal Accountability are contradictory goals. See, Diamond Multimedia created Rioport.com in early '99 as the dedicated support site for the Rio players. Enter lots of lawsuits involving the illegal distribution of MP3s, for which Diamond made the leading portable player and operated an MP3 distribution website - any copyright lawyer would advise them to split their concerns into separate legal entities, each of which could claim that piracy is someone else's fault. Not surprisingly, Diamond (now a division of S3) spun off RioPort, Inc. in October. The downside for the user is that although they theoretically have a new support site (RioHome.com, which still clumsily refers to itself as Rioport), people visiting RioPort seeking the support promised in the software and manual are left in the cold.

|The Greenmap System is an effort to promote awareness of environmental resources in urban communities with maps. You can use them to find organic produce in New York City, cherry blossoms in Kyoto, or nature reserves near Pittsburgh. Some of them are prettier than others, but I won't share my bias. Check the complete list of mapped areas.

|What is a Song-Poem? Cynics would say it's just amateur crap lyrics sung by tapped out studio musicians for vanity recordings. Refined esthetes, however, appreciate the homespun madness of this preserved folk art and its tormented creators.|

|Train Up A Child offers poseable action figures with traditional Christian themes. Granted, they're not the first action figures to inspire religious fervor. However, they do do appear to be the first to offer a choice ethnically sensitive skin tones, and a discount on angels with any purchase.|

|When I need to know about a movie, the
IMDB is actually the
second place I look. First is the superb
Movie Review Query Engine.
With it, you can discover that nearly everyone in
the world except Roger Ebert
loved Gladiator. Personally, I
thought it was a pretty lousy movie.|

|C.S. Lewis is probably best known for his Chronicles of Narnia, which has inspired dreams as well as faith in many. However, he is also well known and loved for many of his other great works, such as The Screwtape Letters, and my favorite, Till We Have Faces.

|There are a fair number of advice sites on the web, but Ms. Loquita's Advice Column on Love is not quite the normal. Perhaps what stands out is the way she talks mostly about her own life. Or maybe it's Miss Trixie, an alternate personality of hers. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a new column in five years or so.|
