This page is liable to undergo random pruning without prior warning or rational forethought, and I hereby disavow any responsibility for all maiming or loss of life incurred as a result of viewing any of the sites below. The following links are in no particular order, and quite frankly it's a miracle that they've actually been sectioned off at all. Just like my bedroom at university, there's order hidden deep beneath the chaos. If you have a link that you think should be on here, or any of the links aren't working, then be sure to let me know.
