Charles Sturt University's "Guide to Australia" A useful set of links to websites dealing with Australia and Australians (if you can stand the rather lurid "green and gold" colour scheme.
Mapquest A site that allows you to create your own maps of most parts of the world
AltaVista Australia Alta Vista's Australian search site
GoEureka - Another AltaVista site - general search site with fast access in Australia
Anzwers - good Australian search site with useful customization facilities
Yahoo Australia - the Australian version of the great category based search engine and listing facility
Web Wombat - one of the first Australian search engines - good Australian focus.
LookSmart - Australian category based site - can use to limit search to particular Australian cities etc
Matilda - Australian based search engine with idyosyncratic attributes
International Search Sites
internet_search.html Netscape's search pages
HotBot yet another. faster than it used to be
Excite Search engine and general on-line information service - current news, tv programs comics, movies etc. Well worth trying out if you haven't already done so. Can be set up as a personal home page.
There is now an Australian Excite site as well - take a look.
Infoseek The GO network (part of the Walt Disney empire) . Search engine + options for web based email etc - similar to Excite. US focus.
Lycos Some similarities to Yahoo - primarily category based search engine etc - US based. When I looked for myself I kept on coming up with a Californian male model with the same name.
WebCrawler Another early offering from Excite
Yahoo One of the early (and big) players in the search directory game.
Starting Point owned by Techlabs. Straightforward interface. I didn't find me when I looked though! I usually do.
WhoWhere? (part of Lycos. Didn't find me at all)
Yahoo! People Search (Found my email address, but also listed two others that I haven't used for years)
WWW browsers like Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator are updated quite frequently.
Click here for the current Mac version of Internet Explorer .
The current download and information site for the latest version of Internet Explorer for Windows.
If they change these links (as they often do) you should be able to track them down through http://www.microsoft.com/, though their Mac stuff can be next to impossible to find at times.
Navigator is available through Netscape. Now that its owned by AOL it doesn't have quite the "underdog" appeal that it used to enjoy. the latest version for the Mac is Version 6, but almost everyone prefers the earlier Version 4.7 (which is still available).
Macintosh users should also consider 'iCab", an excellent WWW browser which consumes far less memory and hard disk space than either Navigator or Explorer.. If you have an older Mac, or limited RAM or Hard Disk space, then iCab will be ideal for you. But even if you have the latest and the greatest G4 it is well worth a look. It has rapidly became my own browser of choice. It is available for download here. The current version takes up about 2.5m of hard disk space and will run quite happily in 4meg of RAM (or as little as 1.5m if you use virtual memory!). The download (1.3meg) of the very latest version took me about 3 minutes on a 56K modem while I was writing this! Stunning piece of work when you consider the current size of Netscape and Explorer!
Opera is another browser worth trying instead of the "big two". I'm just about to test the latest "preview" version for the PPC Mac. Versions are also available for other platforms (Windows, Linux, Beos etc). Its said to be the fastest browser available for the mac at present, but it is still in "preview" mode, so be warned, it may eb a bit buggy still.
If you are fed up with the problems, crashes, viruses etc associated with Outlook Express and other MS email programs take a look at Eudora. The Mac version beats the pants off the Microsoft offerings. Takes up much less space on your hard drive and in memory but somehow manages to be more powerful.
It comes in three "flavours" - full featured and free with adverts ; "lite" and free without ads, and full featured and fee based wiotrhout ads. I've got used to the ads and I like the full features. You can download a version for Windows as well as for Macintosh.
Internet Service Providers
Netspace Online Systems - Home Page
I've been using Netspace Online Systems as my primary service provider for ten years. They provide excellent, very reasonably priced, service. Cheaper and more reliable than most of the big boys like Big Pond, AOL and Ozemail but without the continually engaged lines, limited services, and inadequate support that you tend to find with the "cheapies". I unhesitatingly recommend them. In my experience they are faster most of the time too.
They have centres in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth, Hobart and Launceston plus the provincial centres of Cranbourne, Geelong, Sale, Traralgon, Gold Coast, Wollongong, Newcastle and Yarram. Recently they have been expanding into Alice Springs, Bacchus Marsh, Ballarat, Balliang, Bendigo, Cairns, Campbelltown, Gisborne, Goulburn, Healesville, Lara, Mackay, Marouchydore, Mildura, Mornington, Penrith, Richmond, Shepparton, Toowoomba, Townsville, Nowra, Pakenham, Wangaratta, Warrnambool, Windsor, Wisemans Ferry, Wollongong, Darwin and Emerald.as well!
You can still get Adam Engst's wonderful Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh 3rd Edition on line, though its getting a bit long in the tooth now
If you are new to the Internet and want to learn more, this is still an excellent resource though.
Another site with may useful links to further information about the Internet and how to use it can be found at http://www.cochran.com/start/guide/overview.html

I've always been a fan of French cars - the only cars really designed for Australian bush conditions! My ageing Peugeot 403 used to beat the pants off a variety of employer provided Holdens, Fords and Toyotas as a means of travelling around the Northern Territory (but the Citroën DS is better still). We have also recently acquired a Spanish / German SEAT. Great around the city and on the highway, but I wouldn't try it on the track from Amaroo to Murray Downs! You will find some photos of Peugeots and Citroens I have owned here (It's a slowish load though. I'll have to optimise the photos one day)
For all things related to French cars with an Australian flavour make sure you check out AussieFrogs
When you get there, sign up for the Froggy Forum , where you will find many vastly knowledgable and unbelievably helpful people with an interest in Gallic voitures. For Peugeot, Citroen, or Renault owners its simply the best site around. (Still waiting for them to set up a Simca discussion group - now that;'s something I haven't seen for a while!)
