ShareWare (Pay if You keep)
- Commercial software that the author wishes everyone to "share" with everyone else so they do not need to pay for distribution. But they expect you to register your copy and pay for it if you continue to use it.
- Created and marketed, usually by large companies but sometimes by single individuals. It is required that you pay for this software, usually before you get a chance to even try it.
- A mixture of various UNIX/Linux site links. All Freeware unless otherwise marked.
- An area dedicated to listing those sites offering further insite into some aspect of computer science. Usually there is no downloadable or purchasable software. All reading is done on-site.
- Game software we have personally tried and liked or that some of our senior members recommend.
Other Resources - Other web sites and/or forums with additional useful information that may or may not have commercial content and may or may not require membership to get information.

Gnod is an experiment in the field of artificial intelligence. It's a self-adapting system, living on a server and 'talking' to everyone who comes along. Gnods intention is to learn about the outer world and to learn 'understanding' its visitors. This enables gnod to share all its wisdom with you in an intuitive and efficient way. You might call it a search-engine to find things you don't know about.

In the context of software, an Easter Egg is a hidden feature or novelty that the programmers have put in their software. In general, it is any hidden, entertaining thing that a creator hides in their creation only for their own personal reasons. This can be anything from a hidden list of the developers, to hidden commands, to jokes, to funny animations. You'd be surprised just how many things contain Easter Eggs... just look at the list that has accumulated here!
Sugar Bush Squirrel is a real, live Eastern Gray Squirrel who is owned and photographed by Ms. Kelly Foxton. Rescued, as a baby in her nest, from a tree which was being cut down, she is now living the 'good life' with Kelly in Boca Raton, Florida. A small, lime-green parrot, named Rio, is her big sister and constant companion.
