Links to Free, Cheap and Good Multimedia Resources

I thought that I should post the current & definitive list of where to get stuff here so it can be updated and 'always' available for those who, like me, keep forgetting where they put such a list. I will add categories as I find the time. If you find that any of these are duds, please let us know!

We take no responsibility for the actual content. If one of these sites posts something that you find offensive, take it up with them!

I enjoyed your post. It’s a lot like college – we should absorb everything we can but ultimately you need to take what you’ve learned and apply it.
