A great source to watch professional and amateur gamers do their thing.

If you want to see official broadcasts of tournaments, they are probably on twitch.

But if you want to chat with the gamers while they play, you'll also be able to find those that interact with the audiences.

The site gives the broadcasters many tools to entertain and communication, and you'll find people making use of them.

the site is versatile and great to use. have a dual screen setup? You can full screen the broadcast and pull the chat onto the other screen. trying to make the most of your own tiny screen? well theater mode makes very efficient use of your limited resources.

it is easy to spend too many hours on this site. it is a great benefit to the gaming community.

This site is pure fun, but not just that, it will introduce you to wonderful games that will spice up your game nights.

Heck, this site will give you the tools to put on a kick-ass game night and will drive you to make more of them happen!

You'll laugh, and you'll be amazed. The character and personality comes through in spades, and you'll just have to start the next video.

My go to site for finding how to play music on my guitar.
In addition to providing chords AND tabulature for even relatively obscure songs, it offers premium content to help you learn to play better.

All of the public tabs and chords are created by and voted on and commented on by users.

And to make things better, the chords can be hovered over to see how to make the chord.

To make things MAGICAL, you can transpose the songs up and down with the click of a button!

This site just makes me so happy!

In many ways this site is average and unexciting.
But it is the ONLY site that I have found with the functionality of an exhaustive concordance, and it does it FAR faster.

I'm going to devote the remainder of my review to this one stunning feature:
(https://www.studylight.org/desk/interlinear.cgi)

This features allows you to examine the translation along side the original Hebrew, Greek, or Aramaic. When you hover over a word, it shows you which word it relates to.
Furthermore, when you click on a word, it brings up a definition, a pronunciation guide, and links to the other uses of that word in the bible.

This is incredibly valuable for understanding confusing or ambiguous sections or for separating out the and understanding the words that have poor english translation options.

When you want to know what the bible really means, there is not better source online.

The site is great for finding your closest mediocre wings restaurant.

It will also allow you to almost order wings online from that closest restaurant and then it will tell you that that restaurant doesn't accept online orders.

Which is good because if you could buy wings online here, then you would have to eat Buffalo Wild Wings.

If you are a fan of you local NPR radio station, this is a fantastic companion resource. It allows you to easily search for and listen to old or recent audio news stories.

Additionally, if your local NPR station is of poor quality, you can skip the middleman and come directly to the source.

Pages usually give you the option to listen to a story OR read it. You can thus search for many of the stories by googling word strings that you hear on the radio.

A powerhouse in the world of philanthropic micro finance.

I've been a user since January 2009 and am continually impressed with this model. The ability to help multiple people get fair loans with money put into the system is groundbreaking. For instance, I've put $1200 into the site, but I've used that money to make $3200 in loans to entrepreneurs in 78 different countries.

Kiva has an excellent track record and works hard to avoid partners that would make predatory loans. The default rate is currently just 1.27% for the whole site.

Loans are made in blocks of jsut $25 so it is easy to get on board and start helping people.

Note that you cannot make money from the site, because it turned out to be onerous to figure out every single county and regions laws. This is just to help other people, but you can withdraw your money easily after it has been repaid. The losses I've personally have have been above the site average, but still acceptably low for the results.

Kiva is open and honest with its practices and has excellent customer service. My emails to their staff have been answered promptly and professionally.

Additionally, the site is a hoot for numbers nerds and collectors. You are given many colorful charts to track your donations and recipients, and you can choose to make loans based on criteria to fill out checklists to collect all the industries or countries.

I'm a HUGE fan!

If you want to hear youtube videos repeated, this site has a number of slick options:

1) no sign up required (remembers your favorite videos to repeat with cookies instead)
2) will help you search for and find other popular repeated music
3) the ability to change a youtube url to a listen on repeat url in a few keystrokes is wonderful
4) you can cut annoying sections off the beginning and end of a video

I found a 10 minute video with some interesting polyphony, but that interesting part was only 2 minutes. no problem! just pull the sliders to encompass that section, and you don't have to listen to anything else!

A very enjoyable and intuitive experience

Steam offers an outstanding product.
purchase and installation and uninstall is easy, and there are tons of great games to pickup.

but the part that is most amazing to me is the long term nature of the site. for instance:
1) game licenses are connected to your account, not your computer. so you can buy a new computer and lose nothing
2) it was very easy to change personal info like email addresses (I've had my account for so long that it outlasted one of my emails)
3) games from my childhood are present with no need for an emulator

The value available on the site is very high. A must for any video gamer.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect.

It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...
