Resource directory

A little link directory

Here's an increasingly large pile of bookmarks. Most of these are semi-curated backups of my old, old bookmark files from web browsers I don't use any more, on computers that haven't worked for years. I'm putting them here for now, since the search ecosystem is increasingly bad, and Internet Archive links are not always easy to find.

Links aren't endorsements, obviously. Some of this stuff is only here so I can remember that once, decades ago, I was the kind of person who thought it was neat.
