Java.
TCL/TK Consortium. More than you dreamed.
Download TCL/TK and a great many deriviative languages and applications!

National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) Digital Libraries and Information Systems. Always worth a look. You can generally wander the directories, and you might find something truly useful for your computer, no matter your system type. A good place to look for stuff like Mosaic, or things like that. Also try to FTP to the same place. There is a lot of stuff here at the FTP site.
InterNIC Registration Services Home Page
BBNPlanet Connect. Bolt Baranek and Newman used to be the people behind the MilNet and the SURANet. They privatized or something, and are now running major internet services to anyone, not just the Federals. If you want serious Internet, talk to them.

The SSEC Visualization Project. This is the real deal if you're into five-dimensional visualization. Most definitely check this page out if you want to be able to convert massive standardized databases into useful graphic representations. This stuff requires a powerful computer, the OpenGL graphics libraries or the MESA libraries (this is the author's homepage) for 3D rendering. If you've got a 32-meg box with one damned fast CPU, and plenty of spare drivespace, get this and get it quick; it's even FREE.
