 What sites do you check on a regular basis? Shockingly, the third category is the largest.

Quote from: Samuel Adams
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

... and, of course; Geekhack.

I also follow xkcd, but not every day because it is updated on only three out of seven days each week... ;-þ
I also read PVP, Ctrl+Alt+Del and Penny Arcade regularly.
There are also quite a few other forums and news sites that I visit regularly, but not every day and I don't always participate so much.

Lol I don't think I even beat naughty sorceress yet! But I love the game's sense of humor and ridiculous artwork. Do you think they would allow us to make key caps? That would rock.

I KNOW they would allow keycaps. I'm reverkiller on there if you're interested - I think I may start playing again soon. I have ~40+ ascensions so it could be fun to restart :)

Pastebin is a useful site to share blocks of text with multiple people without using email addresses.  You can use an API to automatically paste text from applications that you create as well.  You can set privacy settings for the pastes or you can decide to make it public.

Many hacker groups and hacktivist groups like anonymous use it to post large data of text as the owners of the site do not seem to care about DCMA requests.  Its always interesting to see what kind of shenanigans are in the top 100 for the week.  My recent favorite was when someone published a bunch of gov.cn domains, most likely coming from an unauthorized zone transfer.
