I ran across an old bookmark earlier today that reminded me of an old ftp (I think?) database called “As the Crow Flies.” It provided the linear distance between two points. Well, I couldn’t find “As the Crow Flies,” but instead found a substitute: How Far Is it Between.
It reminded me of all the small, comparatively low-tech sites were strewn about the Internet (the Web wasn’t very big way back when I started using the ‘Net).
Here are some sites that I culled from an old bookmark list (probably from the late-Nineties or early 2000’s). Some of the sites are still low-tech, old-style Web 1.0. Others have morphed to keep with the time.
All are interesting. But, as they (still) say on the ‘Net: YMMV.
- The Word Spy – The Word-Lovers Guide to New Words.
- iTools – Use the Best Tool for the Job

- The Pestilence Tyme (The sites is closed; but visit Gode Cookery, linked on the good-bye page.)
- Hangman(Need I say more. There’s a twist: There are ESL words, SAT words, words for kids. It’s fun.)
