A List of Links for Learning

This was found via a public post on Google+ by Brad Aker 02OCT12 at 7:03 PM.

He linked to http://noexcuselist.com/.

This site says:

“The best place on the web to learn anything, free.”

There are links to learning resources for:

  • Academics
  • Music
  • Programming
  • HowTo + DIY
  • eBooks
  • Cooking
  • Languages
  • Other

If you hover your mouse over the links, you can see comments about them.

I have not checked out every link myself, but the ones I have checked, are useful.


If you are interested in learning, and you should be, check these out. Let me know what you think.

If you know of any other similar lists, let me know about them also.

I am always looking for places to learn new things.

Jamendo – Music Free and Legal to Download

A co-worker walked by my desk today, stopped and asked what I was listening to.

I told him that particular song was some instrumental jazz I had downloaded from Jamendo, this link is to their english language page.

I have downloaded a multitude of albums, instrumental, sax, piano, jazz, blues, etc. for listening to on my computer.

These artists are from various countries, nine at this time, publishing under Creative Commons licenses.

If you like good music, this is the site for you.

Blog – Lifehacker

Occasionally, I will post about a blog I find interesting or useful. These blogs are not computer related necessarily.

The interesting blog for today is Lifehacker, which touts itself as a “Productivity and Software Guide”.

Typically there are multiple daily entries, mostly dealing with technology. Sometimes announcements of interesting technology, sometimes how to articles, etc. I usually check it out once or twice a week, as I find time and have yet to have a day when there wasn’t something of interest.

For instance, check out the September 20, 2006 post by Adam Pash “Download of the Day: tinySpell (Windows).

The post tells you about a Freeware cross-application spell checking utility. I have read it and followed the link and think this will be something worthwhile to try. If this works out for me, I will let you know in a later posting.

Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
