coffee shop sounds
Also has a mobile app.
online courses taught by academics at proper universities
a classic, but some people don't know about it: landline alternatives to premium rate phone numbers
I use trello for organising my whole workload at work. It's amazing.
this looks pretty good though
it's actually changed the way I view my work / projects etc. In a subtle way but definitely for the better.
Wunderlist for personal tasks, Trello for collaborative. Both are great.
I loves it.
or start, and then forget about it and feel guilty for not doing it more!

I remember you sharing a really good list of useful sites a few months ago but I can't find it :(
'100 most useful websites' and there's loads of results
but a few people seemed to like it, so might be worth doing again:
It's a map of Odysseus' journey
Everyone, I've just walked from Troy!
Not much, quite nice scenery though
little boy is doing this in class. will send to his teacher.
odd people have general desire to learn how to do some, is it cos it is so alien to people who have never done it and thus seems cool?
To give advice though I would say you need to have a clear idea of what area and thus language you wish to do some coding in. Once you have some depth in that moving to others is a lot easier as you have an understanding of architecture that most things roughly follow and the processes in working with code.
some people need to learn how to do it and cant afford to pay
i'm self taught myself and i've built professional websites
if you want to be a proper coder you need to get your pompous on.
yup, that's how us coders talk. thus.
is to pick a CMS and try and use it to make a site. However web dev is the hardest to learn in a linear way as it is just bits of different languages hung together to make a site nowadays. So you get a lot 'my cousin could do that for a fiver' which means your cousin has made a website but patchwork quilting together shit he found on the net without really understanding what is going on. There is a lot to learn with web to actually be good at it and do anything you get asked to. So again in web what do you want to learn?
every recipe every in the NYT, with great search/filter options, decent curation, and for free. BOOM
I guess most people know about this already, but it really is worth experimenting with if you've not done so yet. The one piece of third party software I couldn't do without. And it's free.
Philosophy/ers, abridged. As shared by someone on here the other month.
^decent quality free stock photos.
here's a free education one http://girl-havoced.tumblr.com/post/95647483232/i-believe-in-free-education-one-thats-available
Including a MOOC from my department.
Well... I /might/.
it's a basic guide to rights at work in the UK in loads of different EU languages (for migrant workers) http://www.tuc.org.uk/workingintheuk
I use www.todoist.com extensively.
My short term memory is ruined so rather than remember stuff I just chuck it up there as a todo with a rough date and then each day of my Memento-The-Film like life has a different surprise each morning.
