A small collection of links pointing to possibly useful or interesting sites.


The two daily web comics which I read regularly are User Friendly and Dilbert. I am also quite fond of the Zippy and Reality Check comic strips.

As life goes, many of the funniest comic series have already been discontinued. Among these are Fluff by Nina Paley and Calvin & Hobbes by Bill Watterson. Well, at least Garfield is still alive and napping.


The most popular source for news in the german language is Spiegel Online. Technically oriented news are provided by the Heise Newsticker, the Register and Slashdot.


Leo is the best and most comprehensive german-english dictionary on the web. Also very useful is the english dictionary and thesaurus by Merriam-Webster.
