Well, it has a good collection of free knitting patterns... but they are all just links to external websites. You also get the same pattern repeated sometimes. It's a nice resource to get ideas from, but there are certainly some better sites for ease of use when it comes to looking up patterns.

Good site for looking to see whether films are any good or not. You need to get s "feel" for what the scores mean though; around 6 is generally a pretty poor film, 7+ generally alright... You can tell it's going to be a real stinker if the score is near 3 though!

Excellent for listening to new music from all over the world. Anyone can listen to the tracks, even without an account. Good place to find new artists that you otherwise might miss, especially newly started or indie artists that have few other ways of promoting themselves.

Excellent site for cataloging your collection, and allows you to easily add entries to the database if they are missing. You can sell releases you own, or buy any that are for sale. Only thing is I think a bit more buyer protection could be implemented: it currently works on a ratings system that allows retaliatory negative feedback from a seller if a buyer leaves negative feedback. Overall great site for anyone interested in music.

This game is really good! It starts off fairly simply to ease you in to the controls and premise of the game, but later on there are some really tough levels that had me scratching my head for hours. Really clever game, great to play on your lunch break. You can also take down the level code you are up to so that you can continue off from any computer. Highly recommended!

A solid website for knitting information, but I find the layout a bit tricky to navigate. Updated every day which is a plus, and can have emails sent about new posts.

My favourite website! So much useful information here; if you're interested in knitting, there are free patterns, forums, a great community of knitters.

Huge range of music, and the previews with waveform display are a really nice touch. However, I found out after purchasing that the tracks I bought were available a lot cheaper elsewhere (and not on an illegal site either!). Just make sure you shop around when visiting mp3 stores.

Lots of items to choose from, excellent selection. Nice that even though I ordered things at different times in the day they were packaged together and delivered at the same time. Delivery time could be a bit quicker though.

Got my record very quickly, and was packed securely. Would be nice to see a little more selection available in the store though. Nice that it has a free download section.
