Search Engines

Alta Vista is still the most comprehensive (and quickest), and my first choice, but can duplicate sites. To gradually refine a search, Excite is better. Metacrawler searches lots of the other engines (good if you're looking for something rare), and has links to other search engines.

You can search newsgroups using Alta Vista, but I've heard that Deja News is best.

Need to find an e-mail address? WhoWhere's database (or Bigfoot) could have it. The addresses are mainly collected from newsgroup postings, but you can add your own.

Other sites :

NYNEX Interactive Yellow Pages (US)
Telephone Directories
