Online Help For Your Home
Lists commands such as *69, *67, *77 and the like..
YubNub – YubNub.org
Pretty interesting. Brings Web 2.0 into the realm of the *nix geek. I would love to see some shell scripts that utilize this. (Never mind, it is browser plugins, guess shell scripts are out. Perhaps someone will take this concept and build it around wget or something)
Abstract Dynamics: There is no here here
Google, like the internet itself draws its power from being neither here, nor there, but inbetween everywhere at once, immanent. There is no here there, only results, only meanings.
In any case, interestingly enough, Google for here gives a nice top to bottom list of what people link to when they say “go here” or “download here” or … Actually, you get very similar results (in the beginning at least) if you Google for download here or “go here”.
Interesting that people don’t write, “download there”. I love the second result: “ThereCare > Where can I download There?”

Creative Commons Licensed book
From the site:
The massive popularity of wireless networking has caused equipment costs to continually plummet, while equipment capabilities continue to increase. By applying this technology in areas that are badly in need of critical communications infrastructure, more people can be brought online than ever before, in less time, for very little cost. We hope to not only convince you that this is possible, but also show how we have made such networks work, and to give you the information and tools you need to start a network project in your local community.
