OK. I'm fairly new here guys, and i'm not sure whether this has been asked before, but which site could your computer not do without?

Is BC the only site needed for the survival of your PC? or is there somewhere else that your web-browser simply can't resist. Is there a site out there that has an address that your fingers can't stop typing? Does your mouse make a bee-line to certain .com whenever you turn on the PC? :thumbsup:

Some of my favorites are:

http://www.hotmail.com
keeps me in touch with the world

http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
Essential

http://www.multimap.com/
Road maps for anywhere in the world.

http://bible.gospelcom.net/
for any bible version you want in any language.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/england/radiogloucestershire/
my local radio station where you can listen on-line.

OK lets have a few of yours!

Great Idea! I've never tried to add links before so I hope this works. The first site I go to every morning is this one, so I can listen to the show with WMP. These guys are a riot!
