useful things, no. 4

The fourth in an ongoing collection of functional webpages and dork tools (excluding any/all Google programs).

o Newsroom Navigator — A veritable almanac of useful links to stuff like telephone directories, government records, reference sources, and tons of other pages, designed for the staff of the New York Times.
o VideoDownloader — A Firefox plug-in to save streaming videos.
o Audio Hijack — An application save streaming audio.
o — A mind-boggling list of PDFs of users’ manuals for just about any piece of equipment you can think of.
o –“The world’s largest how-to manual,” they boast, and they might be right. Definitely an interesting use of the wiki. I haven’t played with this site too much yet, but it’s good to know about. (Thanks, Holly!)
