    I know i asked this ages ago and there didnt seem an answer... but does anyone know of an oft updated, wordwide archeology news/magazine site. The only ones ive been able to find are from acheological organisations and they only tend to discuss their own work. An acheology site like spaceflightnow.com or space.com would be nice

    Tech Information

    Here below are a few places that I go for technology related information and resources.



    • X-bit Laboratories - Information on the latest hardware and hardware news, with a very helpful Community Forum.
    • The Inquirer - Don't let the names similarity to the tabloid fool you, this inquirer has very up-to-date information about happenings in the technology world.
    • Anandtech - Similar to X-bit Laboratories, perhaps more well known.
    • Lockergnome - Chock full of information for any Tech nerd, run by ex-Call for Help figure Chris Pirillo.
    • Whatis.com - An IT encyclopedia.
    • Newegg - Hardware for bargain prices, service can't be beat.
    • Arstechnica - PC News and Reviews.
    • Tom's Hardware Guide - The name says it all.
    • Whois.sc - Domain name information and IP tracing.
    • DynDNS - Free HTTP/FTP domain name service redirection. I use it for my remote desktop.
    If you have any others you'd like to suggest, just post them and I will add them to the list.
