Some of the useful places on the web that I've come across . . .
Need a pay-as-you-go ISP - try Wanadoo
- it's quick & easy to set up an account here and they provide other
packages including broadband. I'd recommend that you set up your account
manually to avoid unnecessary browser
customisation though, so when it comes to the Install page of the Sign-up
process, click on the section for Macintosh users and print out your account

Are you running firewall software? Do you
need to? Check the security of your internet connection online by visiting the
Shields UP! pages at Gibson Research.

MSN - The Microsoft Network
It's probably just a legacy from having worked for them in the
past, but I still find MSN
is one of the better portal sites. The nature of web browsing is that you
start off somewhere. Search engines make OK start pages but there's no
room for the serendipity of a News based portal.
