Please Help The Furious Shepherd Improve This Page

The Furious Shepherd is busy updating this page and you can help. If you see a site that you really like, send me an email at FuriousShepherd @ and I'll review the site.  When the new web page is updated, those 'favorite pages' will appear with a yellow background. Please also report dead links or sites that are  incorrectly categorized.  Finally, I'm starting to add a '$' to all websites that charge for services and/or software. Since most of the websites were added to this page before I made that decision, most charge sites are not marked. Please feel free to bring these to my attention.

Tell us about your favorite site today! 

Apparently, several links (3 within a month) on this page have routed people to various "adult" websites. 

I apologize for this and do make an effort to remove these links when they are brought to my attention. 

Please feel free to drop me an email at FuriousShepherd @ if you find something offensive.
