Another useful government site is the Open
Government site, which has all sorts of reports,
articles and information from all manner of government departments;

As Dilbert is comic-strip based, the site has lots of graphics and can
be slow to download but well worth the wait.

If you like films - or if you are studying films -
you may find the Script-O-Rama
site of interest, as it contains over 600 TV and film scripts, including
2001, Bladerunner, Star Wars and three of the Star Trek films.
The Virtual Wall - a virtual rendition of the Vietnam Memorial with some of the many stories of those who died, many of them tragically young.

out for five-cow software if you want the best.
