...On the internet, apart from here (First visit of the day, natch)? Keeping it clean, and taking "as read" Ebay, News, and Social Networking sites, what are your top 3 places to visit? Mine would probably be-

They change on a frequent basis, as my interests rotate, but these last few weeks:

Ubisoft IL2 Sturmovik forums (this has actually been a regular for years now, nearly 7000 posts since 2005).

AVforums (photo sharing and classifieds)

ww2aircraft.net forums (more lurking than posting)

IndieTalk.com forums

Pprune

Sorry to break the rules so early on. These are my favourite internet haunts, but also spend alot of time on flickr, triggerstreet, imdb, and GTplanet. I'm one of the only people I know who doesn't regularly visit a news source. I don't know how I keep up with the world, but somehow I do (don't read newspapers either). Can anyone recommend a decent place to read world as well as London/UK news, without having to endure a painful spin in the writers favour?

p.s. one of the reasons I love pprune (and aarse etc.) is that you read the truth behind the news. Great places.

Arthur - it used to be an ace club, unfortunately it has gone downhill of late, hence my migration to driftworks. SXOC and Key forums have rather a lot in common these days.

Always loved my S14 :) until the day she tried to kill me and bounced of two lamp posts, they really don't like water...

It was someone on SXOC that advised me to put Goodyear Eagle F1s on. Worked a treat in the wet and stopped the excessive fish-tailing under power. :dev2:

Great car - wish I still had it.

Gratuitous car photo now appears. ;)

Namaste, I would like to go for long journey in beautiful lakes around the world. I want to go for natural places. I wish my friends will agree with me.
