    Here - habit, and community
    Reddit - for teh lulz, cutting edge stuff and SC2 community
    4chan - shock factor laughs and lack of any kind of taboo. The living illustration of what the internet becomes without censor or individual responsibility
    NHL.com - my 2nd favourite sport
    Chesterfield Football Club - my 1st favourite sport & team
    Cricinfo - everything cricket
    BBC - source for teh newz
    Memebase - freaking hilarious sometimes
    Team Liquid - SC2 community
    The Football Forum - football talk
    Betfair - gambling baby!
    HotUKDeals - deals and voucher codes for UK retailers
    Overclockers UK - they're a computer retailer, but also probably the best resource of knowledge you will find on the internet for PC related shiz
    XDA Devs - ROMS, apps, tools and everything you ever need for your smartphone

    I think that's largely it.

    You?

    Doh! WTF! Can't I read?! I guess I was looking at all the links :)

    I go to SP, Yahoo, DailyTech, AnandTech, Tom's Hardware, WUWT, ClimateAudit, ErfWorld and OOTS. Off the top of my head.

    I go here, OOTS, ESPN, the SF site once or twice a month, and various work-related things that are too boring to mention. Once a week, I check out Oglaf (thanks Tal).

    I'm loyal and obsessive, so typically, I only have one forum that I visit regularly. So, right now, it's SP.

    Forward Motion gets a lot of traffic from me as well, but I haven't had time to write, so I haven't been over there as much.

    Tom's Hardware when I was thinking about building a computer (all my "fun" money has been repurposed as "emergency" money from when my Mac hard drive died), but haven't been there in a long time.

    There was another gaming site I used to visit when I was into WoW.

    I've been on belly dance, fan fiction, and other random sites for specific purposes.

    Due to the long thread in Book Talk, I've started reading Order of the Stick, which is a good way to pass time when I'm mindlessly chopping wood in Skyrim. I'm thinking of getting involved with a cat forum or a container gardening forum, since I've been interested in those two things lately.

    Oh, and I check my e-mail on gmail and the weather at NOAA.

    1) SP - several times a day. No place like home.
    2) A (Dutch) Christian dating- / community site. Usually every day. I'm one of the few the gay-friendly, rude humored, non-church-going, non-bible-bashing resident, I suppose.
    3) Order of the stick. Every 2 days or so. The only webcomic I really follow.
    4) The Oatmeal Every week, I guess.
    5) Wiki - find out if there's something interesting on the main page. 1/day
    6) Youtube - in search for comedians and stuff.
    7) And there's always Facebook.

    Or Lesbian Spank Inferno, as in the BBC's comedy coupling. (Couldn't find it on YT anymore)

    Edit: After watching that again I was reminded of how much I loved Steve's rantings. :D

    Nowadays I'm lookin' for JOBS, JOBS, and MOAR JOBS but normally

    1) SP
    2) Gmail
    3) My Youtube channels
    4) Le Devoir
    5) Radio-Canada (it's the french language counterpart to CBC basically)
    5) Random Wiki (I meant that literally, I press random page and read it for the fun. Sometimes it's awesome, sometimes it's not. today was some famous new zealander cricket player or something -- I've already forgotten all about it.)
    6) Online comics; OOTS, The Oatmeal, CAD comic, Penny Arcade
    7) The Escapist; for Zero Punctuation, No Right Answer, Escape to the movies, the Big Picture)
    8) "Geek" Sites; Ars Technica, Wired, Den of Geeks,
    9) Facebook, I guess, when I'm in the mood for loads of useless trivia, none sense, and people *****ing about unimportant stuff.
    10) Reddit

    I may be addicted to internet... That's a lot of internet. I'm just sayin' if the internet was a tangible thing I'd grind it into a fine powder and snort me a giant line right now.

    :D That's nice, Flix. I always felt like Information is the drug and that the internet is your "Pusherman".

    Annnnnnd now I got Curtis Mayfield's song stuck in my head.
