Summary of Content
I've used everyone of these links at one time or another and often more than once. So I've put them altogether in one place, for my benefit as well as visitors to the site.  In fact I'm the most frequent visitor to this page! I hope you find them as useful as I do,
Try the Google search on this web (at the foot of the page), it seems to work o.k. but needless to say you have to live with their sponsor adverts but you do get used to them after a while. Script for this is here

This Section's Update history
 11/2007  Another badly neglected section of my site. Stacks to add and am working on it now.
 12/2005  I've added a small star next to the entries I've used / re-used myself in the last four/six weeks 3 stars  12/2006  I'm now adding dates next to the entries to indicate when I added / updated them.
 12/2005  I've added a small star next to the entries I've used / re-used myself in the last four/six weeks 3 stars
 07/2005  Try this nifty script I've found at Felgall.com - Find on this page. This works better than most as it will find subsequent occurrences not just the first one. Also if you don't close the popup window the find function will continue to work on subsequently opened pages. It does cycle round rather than stopping at the foot of the page.
 05/2005  There is now an option to choose whether to open any links chosen on a new page, rather than replacing this page. Which means when you close the link you're visiting this page will still be here. If that doesn't suit you just leave the tick box below unchecked. Script for this is here.
 05/2005  Double clicking anywhere on the page (except on any hyperlinks) will return you to the top of the page. I've put this on all pages of this site. Script for this is here.
A double mouse click anywhere on the page (except when over hyperlinks) will take you back to the top of the page.

All Sites have been found by me whilst browsing the web, they are not generating revenue (for me).
The Links displayed do not necessarily show the full URL, but should point to the correct Sites & should be fully operational.
Please let me know about Broken Links, better alternatives or other similar / useful sites.
