|Crank Dot Net ~ Not updated for some while it seems at the time of writing, this site highlights the apparently crazy and bizarre across a whole range of subjects and drawn from all over the Internet. This is the astrology section and there are some interesting recommendations, it’s intriguing who gets a mention and who doesn’t anyhow…
|CryptoCoin.cc ~ Bitcoin is easily the best known cryptocurrency. Yet it suffers known vulnerabilities, from slow transaction processing and a perceived association with illegal goods. Some of the newer altcoins attempt to address these issues with better speed, tighter security and greater privacy or anonymity. Bewildering though it seems at first, this topic is worth a look…
|Cummingtonite ~ While researching the spiritual life of the Inuit, as I am sure you’ve often done, I stumbled across this mineral named afer where it was discovered and particularly, the small town of Cummington, MA. The original inhabitants of North America are fond of soapstone and today scratch a living selling pieces carved from it. This amphibole, is one integral part.
|Current Position of the ISS ~ Where is the International Space Station (ISS) right now? Just click on the link and this site keeps you instantaneously updated, interfacing with Google Maps to reveal exactly where on Earth the ISS is currently travelling over, along with details of its speed and altitude, plus what the crew can see from their windows this very moment.
|Dateandtime.info ~ This website aims to provide accurate and relevant information about time around the world, plus lots of other information besides. They are up against some formidable competition: yet there are features of their contribution, that make this offering stand out from the rest. Calculating how far you are from the Arctic Circle or South Pole, is not easily done elsewhere.
|Dawn Gets Her Man ~ Or tries to anyhow, although you might be surprised by what happened in real life. Regardless, this is the marvellous Dawn Porter, with some additional input later from yours truly in an astrological context. Truth is, it was all great fun. You can watch or download this BBC TV show only for a limited time, or may strike it lucky with the wonders of YouTube…
|Daylight Saving Time By Country ~ A few years ago, a resource like this was unimaginable. Yet the word horoscope implies an awareness of time. Knowing when and where Daylight Saving Time was observed is a fundamental factor in ensuring the accuracy of your entire birthchart. Such information used to be hard to find, costly to purchase and often wishful thinking, anyhow.
Famed as a network through which artists of many persuasions can display,
share, talk about and even sell their work, deviantART also hosts a special
interest club for those working in some way with a zodiac theme. I’m
sure they could always use some more support, so why not get over there now?
of Cities and Towns ~
An enthralling site, once you get used to the navigation and
the odd glitch, such as everywhere in the UK being listed as a part of
Aberdeen. It is worth it though, because here are
the locations other databases miss, with longitude and latitude,
elevation, detailed satellite imagery, cloud cover and the current weather
|Discordianism ~ In 2005, a dwarf planet was discovered that looked about the size of Pluto, leading to a huge shake-up of science’s take on our solar system. Named Eris after the ancient Greek goddess of chaos, strife and discord there are people who not only relished the upheaval that followed, but who have developed a belief system around these classical references…
|Distance Between Coordinates ~ Those engaged in looking at our circumstances on a worldwide scale, will sooner or later have questions that only a dedicated calculator, based on GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinates or so-called satellite navigation, can address. Bash in two sets of coordinates for the distance between them. Say it isn’t rocket science? Oh yes, it is…
|Dynamic Periodic Table ~
The only tenuous connection of this website to astrology, is the traditional association of each zodiac sign with certain metals in particular. But this tabular arrangement of the chemical elements has always fascinated me, while this interactive offering from Michael Dayah must be hard to beat. If only the instructions were a little clearer for the novice…
Actively maintained by Michael Clark, who has qualifications like most
of us have cups of coffee, Earthpages is a growing link resource for
the concerns of this New Age from spirituality to the environment,
astrology to the art of drinking. Great design and use of Flash
too, at the moment this site seems to be in a state of some transition…
|Earth’s Atmosphere Top to Bottom ~ You’ll doubtless find this both useful and informative, if like me you’d previously imagined the stratosphere was where the Earth’s atmosphere finished. Seems that’s only the 50km mark, after which you have the mesosphere, the ionosphere, thermosphere and finally the exosphere, otherwise popularly called outer space…
|Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) ~ The Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) is an Internet institution, so consider its younger up-and-coming sibling, with a more terrestrial slant. Don’t imagine there isn’t plenty of great celestial imagery lurking in the archives here too, with the backing of NASA and the Goddard Space Flight Center, would anything less suit?
Mythica ~ A broad knowledge of classical mythology is often
important for astrologers, especially when it comes to understanding
some of the more recent astronomical discoveries from an interpretation point of view. So if you don’t know your
Hestia from your Hercules or your Juno from your Jupiter, then this
is undoubtedly the place to go…
|Experience ~ Believe it or not, this is really an advertisement. It publicises a shop with a postal address in Camden, NJ that currently only ships within the United States. So, I am not promoting their products as I have no idea, but I’m recommending you to check out their site, albeit with the numerous recommendations and restrictions that often accompany, such ambitious designs.
