Trend Micro ( is a computer security firm that hosts a complimentary virus checker that can be run over the Internet. Dubbed HouseCall, this service scans and cleans selected drives and folders without lengthy downloads or decompression times. And because it's hosted directly from the company's site, it's always up-to-date on the most current viruses that are floating around in cyberspace.
Transdimensional Technologies ( is where I go to keep apprised of the latest testing methods. The firm focuses on evaluating power products and optical systems, but the free papers and testing equipment information provided on the site can be extrapolated to a range of other products. Rapid testing of prototypes is a company specialty. 

LoneBiker ( contains the most complete list of government contact information I've found on the Web. We work in a highly regulated industry, and it never hurts to know exactly who's making the regulations. With just one click, you can go to Web pages for the White House, FDA, the Patent and Trademark Office, most political parties, and many other government organizations. Handy tools for looking up zip codes and area codes also make the site worth visiting.

Borderland Sciences (www. is a research foundation dedicated to disseminating information on recent scientific developments. The site covers everything from earthquakes to solar technology, so there's some extraneous information, but I find it's a quality nonconventional resource. In addition to complimentary articles and papers, the site contains a list of links to other science resources.

Nasiff Associates (Brewerton, NY; develops medical diagnostic and administrative products that integrate into personal computers. The company's product line includes units for performing electrocardiographs, stress testing, vital sign monitoring, Holter evaluations, and patient record management.
