now this is truly a gem: dedicated to hyper-specific content in a manner befitting The Directory, but also: image links that glow onMouseOver(), frames, inconsistent use of java script:openwindow(), a community forum that is somehow still active, a FAQ whose last updated timestamp was 20 years ago

fuuuck that name is bringing back memories. i'm pretty sure that site is what i used when i dabbled in system programming back in high school. most i ever did was a basic bootloader, setting up protected mode and associated cpu data, and i think i got some lovely pio ata driver working (maybe only partially, i don't remember for sure). for whatever reason to this day i still remember that the initial sector is loaded at 0x7c00 on pc. i'm sure this piece of knowledge will be useful someday

that wiki is definitely way more complete and organized than whatever it was back then. i guess that nearly, uh, 20 years of people adding to it will do that. kids have it so easy these days

Oh hey, I didn't notice this thread before, because it was stickied. I have a few things that might be worth adding, perhaps.

Here is a post on medium.com that contains a list of every lapidary supply shop in the world.

Here is a pair of web sites that go together:
Timetested Tools' dating hand planes is a starting point for figuring out what brand of old hand plane you have and maybe what date it was made
The wood and shop identify stanley hand plane age type study site is a linked sequence of questions you click the answers to, to figure out exactly what model and year range of Stanley hand plane you have

A plane life is a research library of over 4000 scanned images of ads and instructions and exploded diagrams of hand planes (and some other related woodworking tools)

The cut list optimizer is a web site where you put in the dimensions of all the pieces of stock (wood, steel, whatever) you need, and it calculates the minimum number of sheets or planks or whatever that you need to buy, and also shows you a visual diagram of your cuts to make, labeled with the labels you provide.

Ken Rockwell is a giant nerd about cameras and his website is a massive hyperlinked resource about every single camera and lens he's ever touched, and there's thousands. I've only explored parts of the nikon pages but it features such absolutely essential gems as this no-nonsense easy to reference list of lens:camera compatibilities complete with tables and visual guides and so on.

Caltopo is an online interactive set of the USGS topographic trail/hiking maps for the US, including overlays with data about geology, fires, cell phone coverage, sun exposure, and avalanche warnings.

Here is a hyperlinked, annotated, free online complete set of the Lewis and Clark expedition journals published by University of Nebraska, with maps, footnotes, and all kinds of nerdery. It includes the available journals from expedition members Ordway, Gass, Whitehouse, and Floyd, which are usually not included in typical publications of the journals.

check the yciapos thread if you want to see me go from "hm this guy says some interesting stuff for new photographers" to "lmao dude sucks" over the course of a few days.

i don't remember him being a particularly bad person with respect to politics (other than some weird but ultimately very minor comments wrt. chinese products, iirc), he is just rather bad at the one thing he's supposed to be good at, which is providing good photography advice.

oh OK. I mostly use his site to help me know if a given lens will work with my camera, and in that aspect it's been flawless, but if he's telling people how to take pictures wrong somewhere I wouldn't have noticed, so that's good to know.

defector.com is where the deadspin writers went. it's a pay site ostensibly about sports; they also do other journalism. it's the best journalism i've found on the internet.

rotor it's kind of lame if people can't discuss the links getting posted though. i agree with you on the shitposts, but discussing the content of the directory to make sure it's generally high quality seems important to me
