Every month or two, we come up with a list of the great geek sites that we read and share it with our readers. It’s also a great way for me to take a day off, since it only takes a few minutes to come up with…

New subscribers might notice this is part two, so you might want to check out the first edition of great geek sites.

Here they are, in no particular order.

If you like our articles, you absolutely should subscribe to SimpleHelp. He writes in-depth articles on all sorts of subjects, like this one about streaming audio and video across the internet.

MysticGeek’s Realm
Since moving on to his own blog, he’s started posting some really great content… did you know you can watch star wars over telnet?

This site shows you the top links from digg, del.icio.us, reddit, and dozens of other sites. What’s so great about it? You don’t have to actually visit digg or reddit… they link to the actual URL, not the digg item. Love it!

CyberNet News
If you want just the most interesting geek news, this is the subscription for you. Check out his nostalgic article about accessories for the original NES.

This is a relatively new blog, but he’s got some great tips for linux.

Of Zen and Computing
I included this site last time, but I wouldn’t have known about the Adobe Reader vulnerability other than reading his site. He also recently answered the question “Should I add my cell phone to the Do Not Call registry”… very useful if you keep getting those chain emails.

Linux users only… he’s got daily tips about linux commands.

Ed Bott’s Microsoft Report
Who is Ed Bott? He’s just the author of loads of great books about Windows… His series about Windows Vista DRM is extremely interesting.

Windows Vista for Beginners
They’ve got some good material geared towards beginners, as the name implies.
