    Lately, I find my interest in the web just lacking. The only web pages I visit are bit-tech, PCMech, wikipedia, and I play a bit of Yahoo pool quite a bit.

    I need some suggestions for other web-sites to visit! i find myself barely gameing due to work, I'm not really sure what I'm interested in now. I like music (speaking of which, I remember a while ago when someone here talked a web-page that plays a custom web-radio station based upon music you like, anyone know what I'm talking about?) and I need to learn more about programming.

    Kind of irrelevant to music and programming, but i feel like i should mention them anyways.

    engadget.com has some interesting stuff, aswell as hackaday.com

    If you want some very crude laughs: http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

    That can keep you busy laughing for a while. Also try reading webcomics based on your interests, they can pass time well!

    My open tabs, on a pretty much daily basis, are Bit-Tech, BBC or Mainichi News, Webcomics, and Google.

    All of my school research gets done in the library archives available online or through good ol' google searching.

    pandora.com also gets my recommendation, though they don't have very much Japanese music.

    Also check out IPTV stuff like diggnation

    You can waste several days on B3ta.com and weebls-stuff.co.uk is generally good.
    As for the programming side of things; it depends on what type of language you want to learn

    sad to say, Mostly Bit, eBay, Yahoo News, and the web comics (User friendly, Penny Arcade, Ctrl-alt-delete, and Mows).

    Once in a while I'll wander elsewhere, but those take up a pretty good chunk of my time

    Usually, it's Digg, Slashdot and Bit-Tech as well as some friends blogs and sometimes wikipedia.
    I'll visit Neowin and Aeroxp just for some vista news occasionally.

    If you want a programming based distraction, then I recommend Project Euler. It's great if you want to hone your programming skills and improve your knowledge of number theory while at the same time doing something constructive and challenging with your spare time. I've been pretty hooked to it recently.

    My regulars are just here, news.bbc, slashdot.org, wired.com - then there are some irregulars that I spent huge ammounts of time on maybe once or twice a year, like Xtremesystems - where I'll cram info before buying expensive stuff. Last.fm and Ishkurs guide to EDM have been come fairly regular for me too whenever I run out of music I want to listen to.
