If you've been keeping track of this blog for a few years, you know that on New Year's eve (today) is the day where I say out with the old bookmarks. I take stuff I've saved over the year and give it to you with nothing other than a vague title. These are links that I saved, but couldn't think of anything to say about them, or for some reason or another didn't blog about them, but they could've made it. To be honest, this is probably my favorite blog entry of the year. Without further delay, I give you my lost bookmarks of 2008:
